Liked the chess variations lots, very cool
Got a few questions tho?
Do u have to move if u can? eg.- king in to check
Can the coin move thru pieces?
the mate rule is confusing!
1st player that can take the king shud b winner!
If U can't move do u miss a go?
Atomic Chess is wicked!
Have u not heard of random chess? back row laid out randomly -
VERY INTERESTING, i THINK A CHESS GRAND MASTER CAME UP WITH IT!

It is called Fischerandom Chess and an ex-world champion came up with it, you are right. I briefly featured it in my own article "The Game of Chess".
Very good work here in the entry by the way!
Excellent entry! Thank you. Here is another variant:
Two Move Chess:
Just like regular chess, but whenever it is your turn, you get two regular moves. For example, you can capure a piece and then move back to where you were, or you can move a bishop out of the way and bring your queen out in one turn. Be very alert to whether you are in check! All rules about check, checkmate, etc., apply.
Similar, but sillier is Three Move Chess, in which there is no check; you win by capturing the king. Not very similar, and far sillier is Four Or More Move Chess, in which the player to choose the white team wins instantly. Four Or More Move Chess is rather like tossing coins for keeps, only sillier.
for answering one of my ?'s But is anyone able to answer the one's about the rules?
