    Endgame is a Chess variant which starts with the game already in progress, more or less.

    Before the game starts players secretly purchase pieces using points. There is a maximum number of pieces of each type, but this is not always the same as in the standard game (e.g. a player can purchase two queens). The cost per piece goes up as more of the same type are purchased.

    Once the players have their pieces they take turns placing them on the board, but all pieces except the kings (which are placed last) are placed on randomly-determined squares.

    Once the pieces have been placed play proceeds according to the usual rules.
