What is Sunsetter ?


Sunsetter is a chess playing program. There are two version, one plays normal chess, the other plays chess variants called "crazyhouse" and "bughouse".

You can play it on your computer (see Downloads), or on the Internet chess servers (see Links).

Sunsetter is completely free, released under the GPL.




Why a Crazyhouse chess version ?


Programming Crazyhouse chess is an interesting challenge. The figure below shows that the huge average number of possible moves per position in crazyhouse (because you can drop all your pieces in hand on almost all squares) results in much less depth reached compared to normal chess. Because of this crazyhouse programmers face some problems today fast hardware has solved for normal chess.
