n.-A variation on chess, the origin for the name of which no rational person is aware. There are four players broken into two teams, and each player has a partner who plays the opposite color, passing along any pieces (s)he may capture. Pieces may be placed as a turn instead of moving a piece already on the board. Also timed (chess clocks): five minutes.
Bughouse has spawned such brilliant insults as:
"I'll castle your queen-side."
"How about a free king?"
"Oh my fucking God. He played e5."
"Ah. The double sit. Classic."
I resign. Want to play bughouse?
