Virrey Chess (El Ajedrez del Virrey) represents a fresh new look into the future of chess. It proposes a reform of its rules, historically founded, with which the author advocates the search for creative challenges, always in pursuit of the artistic side of chess.
Francesch Vicent, José Raúl Capablanca and Bobby Fischer, three outstanding figures in the History of Chess, shared the urge to modify the age-old game. Plunging into the 21st century, right in the middle of the technological era of chess, the time has come for imagination, pure creativity and fantasy to return to the chessboard.
A revolution is so much the greater when it is capable of invigorating the reality upon which it acts, introducing as few new rules as possible. In Virrey Chess the only variation pertains to the ultimate fate of the weakest of all the pieces, the humble pawn. It is but a small change, that nevertheless changes everything.
Virrey Chess, pervaded by the same renewing spirit that passed over the chessboard in the last quarter of the 15th century, brings us, with all due respect, new horizons for chess.
