I wonder, does Chess Stack Exchange include chess-variant questions? I know that there are a lot of variants of chess, like Chess960, Bughouse, Atomic, etc.

Personally, I think it should. It's not called a CHESS-variant for nothing, and if chess.SE is not appropriate for it, then where should these questions be asked?

    +1, I think that chess variants are increasingly interesting the stronger computers get as well. – Andrew May 1 '12 at 19:57

    "then where should these questions be asked?" there is always Board & Card Games – CodesInChaos May 11 '14 at 13:42

I would think it's ok only as long as they are properly tagged. That way, those who are not interested in those variants can filter them out according to the tags.
