Once again, Vietson members had another chance to play “face to face” against each other in an offline tournament hosted in Hanoi, Vietnam early this year.
Thanks to the coordinators and contestants who made this happened. For those of you who didn’t have a chance to join, we got some videos to share with you. Thanks to VTV3 and TTX for reporting this great event.
In Blind Chess, the pieces are randomly shuffled on both sides. Most of the opponent’s pieces are also hidden. You can only see your own pieces and have to memorize or guess your opponent’s pieces by watching his/her moves. That’s why it’s called Blind Chess.
This variation is very popular among Vietnamese people. It adds a little more strategies into the game and is surprisingly fun. If you’re a Chinese Chess lover, you must try this. This variation is only available @ VietSon.com. Don’t forget to register an account first.
