Four-Handed Chess Set

The great populariser of 4-way chess was Captain Verney, who insisted that the Queens should all start on light squares. But Pritchard tells me that the Hughes-Hughes version, with Queens always to the left of the King, superceded it.

Chess Quotes

"The chess-board is the world,
the pieces are the phenomena of the Universe,
the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature,
The player on the other side is hidden from us.
"
— Thomas HUXLEY (1825-1895).
