About

I'm bringing back Touchdown Chess. I sold the game in 2002 and 2003 on Ebay while living in Rhode Island. There was also a local TV commercial for the game. I moved to Las Vegas in 2004 and now will bring the game back with some changes. The biggest change is the board. The board had a fold and took a box the size of a large pizza box to ship. I'd like to print the board where it could fit in a smaller box.

The rules have been changed a little also. When you get your game also consider that you and your friends are the Rules Commitee, if you want to adapt the rules, feel free. Have fun. 

Rules: Teams start at the 20 yard line and advance. A Pawn crossing the goal line is 3 points. The Pawn is returned to the line of scrimmage. A Rook, Castle or Bishop is 7 points. They are returned behind the line of scrimmage. A Queen is 10 points and returns next to the King. The Queen and Rook must capture 2 pieces before scoring.

The game is 60 minutes. The highest scoring team wins. Or. If the King crosses the goal line the game is over.

Risks and challenges

I think the biggest challenge is to find good vendors in Las Vegas. I need a company to print up the board game and also find a box supplier. The chess pieces I can purchase by mail but I'd also like to find a vendor in the local area.
