Hexagonal Chess Set

This is Glinski's Hexagonal Chess, which I think I first found out about in the 1970s through CHESS magazine.

The ChessVariants site explains how you can make your own sets for this and other chess games.

N.B. The Bishops on f4/f8 should start on f1/f11

Chess Quotes

A quote from Richard RETI's Masters of the Chessboard(p 395):
"In general, it can be established that there are two defenses against 1. e4, which make it absolutely impossible for the first player to take any initiative, and which give Black such an even game, without any difficulties at all, that it has now become useless in practice, since these defenses are generally known. They are the Caro-Kann Defense and the variation of the French Game: 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 dxe4."
Glad that's settled! :-)
