Chessboard Kingdoms is a Chess inspired multiplayer turn-based strategy game that sees you building your fortress, commanding your armies and laying siege to your opponent’s fortress as you attempt to dominate its grid-based maps.
Chessboard Kingdoms takes the classic turn based strategic gameplay of chess and adds base building, new units, puzzle-solving, exploration, multiple game modes and multiplayer battles with up to 4 other opponents. The battles in Chessboard Kingdoms really are battles, with you building your army and attempting to crush your opponent in siege warfare.
A lot of the original Chess units remain, but they’re joined by ranged and magic units such as catapults, archers and wizards. You’ll need the catapults to smash your way through your opponent’s fortress and interestingly, the wizard units can not only use spells to attack, but will also affect the movement patterns of units around them.
It’s an interesting concept, which takes the classic game of Chess and fleshes it out into a fully fledged turn-based tactical warfare game. Sign up for the Beta to see if you can conquer the Chessboard Kingdoms.
