I've never been that into opening theory in the standard chess, so I like the variants. They're good, you should try them.
Chess960 - Starts off cool, but always castling to the same position seems to go against the spirit of the random starting positions.
Benedict960 - The first wacky variant I tried. It's a lot of fun. Not being able to capture pieces makes you have to think very differently.
Suicide960 - I spent the first half of my first game trying to capture the other guy's King. Then I did and I realized I was playing backwards. But I still won it. Don't be fooled by being up or down big early, a long run of forced moves can totally reverse the game.
Atomic - I still haven't got this one figured out, so if you're looking to move up in the Atomic Pyramid, I'm your guy.
