Synchronous Awarichess is a varant of the standard game. It was created by Olivier Dubuis who lives in Lausanne (Switzerland).

Rules[]

The only difference between standard Awarichess and synchronous Awarichess is that in the latter game powers are not accumulated. On the contrary, each seed that is taken in the game of Awele is converted at once into chess moves . So the phases of playing Awele and Chess quickly succeed one another.
