Classic Staunton

The ebony and boxwood sets were weighted with lead to provide added stability and the underside of each piece was covered with felt. This afforded the players the illusion that the chessmen were floating across the board.

The Staunton pieces broadly resemble columns with a wide molded base. Knights feature the sculpted head and neck of a horse. Kings, the tallest pieces, top the column with a stylised closed crown topped with a cross pattée. Queens are slightly smaller than kings, and feature a coronet topped with a tiny ball. Rooks feature stylised crenellated battlements and bishops a Western-style mitre. Pawns are the smallest and are topped by a plain ball. Pieces representing human characters (the king, queen, bishop, and pawn) have a flat disk separating the body from the head design; this is called a collar.

Three-player chess is a family of chess variants specially designed for THREE players.

Three-player chess variants are the hardest to design fairly, since the imbalance created when two players gang up against one is usually too great for the defending player to withstand. Some versions attempt to avoid this "petty diplomacy” problem by determining the victor as the player who first delivers checkmate (with the third player losing in addition to the checkmated player).

The introduction of a third player drastically alters the style of play, even when standard pieces are used. Many chess openings are useless due to the extended board and third player. Each player must think twice as far ahead—anticipating the moves of both opponents, with the added complexity that the next player may move to attack either opponent. If a player trades off pieces with a second player, the third player benefits. Hence, players will be more reluctant to make trades. Players often avoid such trades so as to carry out other strategies.

Our journey started almost ten years ago in Stuttgart/ Germany when we took a radically new approach to making board game. It's the passion for extraordinary thinking and that led us on a mission to design chess for THREE players:

Now, we are at it again ...

 Here is a prototype.

  A heavy, solid and robust figures and boxwood that will provide years or decades of use.

  • You’ll have to choose a board color. We will provide you a simple template with standard colors, but it’s really down to personal preference. If you like unusual combinations, you might want to try a pink, red, or brown board just to keep your game more colorful. Lets you choose from 16 MILLION colours!

 We are glad to offer you chess classic as well. Here is a prototype.

We will do our utmost to ensure that your products arrive on time. However, we are aware that some problems concerning shipping and production may arise that are outside of our sphere of influence. If we cannot guarantee that all backers will receive their copy of the game before silvester, then we can, at least, guarantee that you will be benefitting from a great discount and many exclusive Kickstarter only features. The commercial version of the game will include a lot less material than the Kickstarter one. If these special contents and prices are not sufficient when compared to the risk of not being delivered on time however, then we suggest that you do not participate in this crowdfunding campaign. Thank you for your understanding.

Risks and challenges

Producing anything at high-volume poses a number of problems. With that said we're not starting from square one. We believe in transparency and communication, so our backers will be the first to know about any unplanned delays or hurdles.
