Cinque-cell Chess

This area looks at chessvariant's where the board has pentagonal cells (quints). These are even rarer than trigs.

There is Pentagonal Chess and my own Penturanga, but little else.

There are a variety of pentagonal tilings of the plane, but I intend to explore the roseate tiling by designing variants with the following boards of 104 and 150 quints.

These variants are called Roseate-CIV and Roseate-CL respectively:the background to their creation begins here.

My Board Drawing Utility now draws roseate pentagonal boards.
