Are you tired of memorizing Chess openings? Well, this app will randomize the pieces on a chess board (with some restrictions) ensuring that you start thinking from the very first move. The instant you start the app, it shows you a new starting position, no need to tap or rotate first!

According to official Chess960 (a.k.a. Fischerandom or Fischerrandom) rules, your bishops will always be on different colors and the king will always be positioned between the two rooks. You will get a completely random position from the 960 starting possibilities every time.

Note: you cannot play Chess960 on your device using this app. It will only randomize the pieces so you can set them up on a board to play with friends. This way you can play Chess960 wherever you have a chess board instead of having to roll dice multiple times. I hope you will enjoy it!
