Apparently it's like normal chess, but with the pieces arranged in unconventional starting positions.
I photographed this at the Hilldale Mall in Madison, on my way to the local Apple store. I presume the layout is the work of an uninformed or inattentive employee rather than a passing troll.
When I play Scrabble with family, we like to do variants of the game. I wonder if recreational chess players ever modify the game a la "Battleship," setting up pieces any way they want before the start of the game.
