Biggest factor is needing a lot of substitutes for when people drop out.

CMV: woke chess. Black or white should move first
I'm partially memeing bc i get that it's a game from like 3000 yrs ago, but its a very easy modification. Is there a reason why this isn't done? Or changing the colors to something else? (Blue vs red, which seems to be video game standard)

I have aphantasia but managed to follow the moves in the video and notice the pin. Aphantasia is the inability to create mental images in one's mind. You can check for yourself if you have aphantasia by [imaging a ball on a table]( Do you have aphantasia? Can you play blind chess?
