Chesses review
Exceptional
by Kyle Weber

A brilliant take on a genre (alternative chess games) that has been the subject of experimentation for centuries.  Without giving too much away, each of the variations offered changes the basic ground rules of chess in ways that are easy to understand but surprisingly hard to master.  These changes vary from presenting chess puzzles whose solutions will be intuitive to those familiar with chess puzzles to completely transforming the entire game to include elements of randomness and uncertainty that introduce another level of complexity to the game.

While this game doesn't have that much content as a single-player game, any game that makes you think and surprises in the way that this well-crafted casual web game does deserves an "exceptional" rating.
