About

Why Twisting Chess

The classic Chess game is a fantastic game for young and old. It's fairly easy to learn, but super hard to master. This is often considered a reason not to play the game. Especially nowadays with mobile devices, the barrier to master this versatile game is quite high. Twisting Chess aims to break down that barrier and make it fun and challenging to play for experienced as well as new players.   

It is well known that the game Chess game stimulates your creativity, trains both sides of the brain simultaneously, prevents Alzheimers, enriches intelligence on different levels, and helps in problem-solving and planing ahead.

Who can play it?

Twisting Chess is a game for all ages and levels of competency in the original game. 

When you play twisting chess, we assume a basic knowledge of the original game. That means that we expect you to understand the basic abilities of the pieces, but that's all. Of course you may have a competitive advantage when you know some basic strategies, but don't be fooled, because the two new characters we introduce can ruin your intentions in the blink of an eye. You're welcome to download here the rules of the new characters.  


It's all about the game.

As you can see we have many different pledge goals. They start from 8 euro, and run all the way up to 250. Our prime goal is that people have fun, and fun shouldn't have to cost a thing.

We ourselves have a lot of fun creating beautifully crafted pieces for the game, which you can buy in many different varieties. But we can imagine that for starters people want to test the dynamics of the game before they want to buy the awesomeness we have to offer ;-). 

We'd love it when people share their twists on our chess game. Feel free to share it on social media and tag us in your creations. Of course all pledges are intended for personal use. Share the love, but let us produce for the mass. 

Us on Social Media

Why is the funding goal relatively low?

We have invested our time and dedication to make this a market worthy game. Ramon owns a factory in which he is specialized in creating new and innovative products, and Eduardo has a background of creating new and beautiful designs. This is our passion, this is what we do. We need the 2.5K and your support to get this product to the market, but we don't have to start a factory and production line from scratch. The game is already in a production worthy state and playable for anyone who'd like to see.

Risks and challenges

Our productionline is able to produce approximately 500 games per month at max. This might become a risk in making a deadline whenever the product takes off. We will however let all backers know upfront when we see possible delays in the manufacturing process, which we at this stage do not anticipate.
