About

Command a Chess army. Challenge your friends. Defeat your family. Fulfill your destiny!

Chess Tactics transform traditional chess games into epic battles with various magical armies, unpredictable strategies, and infinite possibilities. You'll need both your gut and brain to win a game of Chess Tactics.

Some cool things you can have on a chess board:

  • Chess pieces become massive fantasy units with unique abilities.
  • Customize your own army with units from several warring factions.
  • Each turn requires meaningful coordination between multiple units.
  • Units can support nearby allies or attack enemies from afar.
  • Using resources and strategies to control the dice of fate.

Best for 2-4 players, ages 14 and up. Recommended playtime: 30-60 minutes.

 Currently, there are four official game modes:

  •  Standard: 1v1 game as instructed in the "How to Play" section below.
  •  Quick Match: 1v1 game with no Terrain, War Effort, Battle Command (i.e. no buying new unit). Only Unit Commands are allowed. Best for instructing new players or when time is limited.
  •  Free-for-all: Party game of 3-4 players that can form temporary alliance. Players starts with only the King, earning 1 War Effort per turn, and must build/use their armies wisely. Battle Command cards are drawn randomly each turn, and trading battle command cards is allowed.
  •  Death Match: Only playable with Chessboard Battlefield Extension pack.Party game of 3-8 players. Similar to free-for-all mode, but unit stacking is allowed, so that each tile can hold up to 4 units. Players start with more War Efforts than in Standard mode.

This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 850+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $370M raised between them.

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter and we have worked very hard not only on the game, but also on its logistics. As of right now, possible tariffs may have an effect on the shipping cost.

We want to deliver the best value you can get for your money. So, more add-ons will be added automatically to reward tiers, should the outlook become more positive.

Although most of our artworks are final, some parts of the game design and contents will be updated continuously by supporters like you. By pledging to this project, you acknowledge that the final look, content of the rewards, and the project itself are subject to minor changes.
