About

We are going to have built as many copies of Generals Chess to sell and give away as the funding will allow. It is 2,3 or 4 person chess titled, "Generals Chess. At 7,000 funded we will get 500 sets, if the funding allows 5000 sets. They will be good copies in "First run limited edition" numbered boxes or units for you to give away for Christmas or birthdays or just keep and play with your friends. 

 In addition we are going to get as many 3ft. by 3ft. table top mats, with the game board printed on them as we can. So you can roll them up and bring them with you anywhere, to play the game with your friends.

We started the sales site, it is up and we are working on it. It is at the following location.

I have never seen anyone playing 4 person chess and this game is superior in style and uniqueness with the same challenges of traditional chess by making it a 2, 3 or 4 person game, with little change to traditional play.

 While we will offer a strategies hotline, however young the game, we believe they will be good strategies to start people out.  

The mechanics of putting the site together are easy, we hire a technician and developer to build a great site to serve the world in an easy, simple, understandable format, to let players have a good time and maybe build a new following for a long time traditional and loved game with a twist.

There are thousands of techs who know the industry and we have one already working for us. He is quite familiar with all aspects of building a sharp, concise site that is easy to navigate. 

The hard games or game units in a box and the mat are very easy to obtain through any number of outlets at a fairly reasonable price for 500 to ten thousand copies. And that price will get better once we are able to buy in greater numbers.

I have nothing on my schedule but building this company. I want to expand the company to have several pages, each a different game or fun activity. But we have decided to stay with just the Generals Chess for the moment so we can insure the people who donate, we will make this work.

But I can tell you there are at least 4 other very viable aspects of gaming coming to this site in late 2016, which will break records in my opinion. They will certainly be as entertaining and stimulating as the Generals Chess once we make it worldwide interactive.  

The style of the new games are in the genera of another variation of Chess style game to interactive combat and fighting games to racing games. But each with new never before seen twists. So the board game means more to me than just selling the Generals Chess (which means a lot to me).

This site can be one of the most used gaming sites of its type within one year of it being completed with the full spectrum of games and I see it being the most visited site of all gaming sites at least one year of the next ten years after all the games are up.

Give us the benefit of the doubt and watch us grow and produce jobs and generate revenue for our community. 

There are many projects out there who tout successful futures, but we guarantee this site will make a million dollars in the first 5 years. The projection is more like a 10 million dollar vehicle in the first 5 years, and at least 50 jobs. 

The game first is for 2, 3 or 4 players which can help give a devout player more opportunity to play, needing one of the tree combos to play. The board itself adds the space of more than one complete additional board creating a larger number of moves and strategy to use. The general piece is a piece which any player can take control of by taking control of the generals square or the center square. And any other player can take control or him by killing the player in the control square and taking their place. He can only be killed by the King, Queen or knight and can kill any piece. He moves in any direction up to 3 spaces at a time which makes him dangerous but not so dangerous he makes the game tilted to the favor of one player. The fun of four players can be distracting in a good way. While it can be a game for all it can be a game for only very experienced players. While it is new and we are working on strategy the traditional strategy works well, the first time someone came at me from the other side of the board it took me by complete surprise I feel the style is more than superior to the old board, but I know some people will always be partial to the traditional. If you want to know more feel free to ask me anything I will do my best to answer you.

Judging the Game itself and the knowledge of its long glorious past will help you see we have something profitable with a long future.

Risks and challenges

The only challenge is the money to put together for a site that caters to millions of people world wide. The graphics are an easy design and a developer can easily build them for the Generals Chess site so buyers can fully review the game.
And it is for the moment only a sales site that will develop into an interactive gaming site with multiple games of various style and challenges.
I would say the biggest risk is that not enough people would patronize the site to keep it open for many years (decades I mean). Though we will be adding several interactive computer games.
But as everyone knows Chess has had over 2000 years of patronage the world over and is still popular.
I have heard it said no one has created a better Chess game than the original,... I say yes, that was true, until now.
