Reversed (Upside Down) Chess or better known as "wild 5"

Reversed chess has always been on the ICS servers ever since Daniel Sleator (one of the founders of the Internet Chess Club - aka "Darooha") invented it and implemented it into the original ICS. The very first 'hard' evidence we have of wild 5's existence is from a posting that Darooha made on the rec.games.chess newsgroup on September 1, 1993. Thus, wild 5 has been in existence and been played ever since that date.
