|Chess is the ultimate strategy game, requiring a lifetime of study and careful planning. But what if things didn't always go according to plan? What if chess were more like real war, where a bridge collapsing, a soldier fleeing or bad weather could ruin even the best laid plans? A true strategist needs to have the ability to adapt to unforeseen circumstances, to change his plans and make the best of what he has. The Royal Chess card set introduces that element of random chance to the classic game.|
The way it works is simple. Players are dealt five cards at the beginning of the game, and each player must choose a piece to move from the cards in his hand. Neither player knows what cards the other holds, so bluffing and making risky moves are key parts of the game. As the game goes on, you get more cards, and your options and strategies increase. Can be played with any chess set (chess set not included).
Random Chance: Moderate.
