Chess Card Game
A downloadable game
Chess. The game of kings. One of the most played games in the world. One of the deepest games – nay, one of the deepest activities – that the true genius may engage in their idle time. This noble game, which has stood the test of time and of the greatest minds of many generations, may, yet, fill us with questions. Questions such as: "What if I could accrue a resource in order to deploy special abilities in this game?" or "What if I ruined this beautiful, symmetrical game of completely transparent information with hidden bullshit?" or even "What if I could have, like, five rooks?"
Chess Card Game is the game to answer these pressing questions.
This completely unplaytested print-and-play game includes cards for players to create a deck and play alongside a regular chess game (which is bound to become a lot less regular). Change the way pieces move! Let your Knights move ten times in a turn! Reveal that the Rook your opponnent just capture was a Pawn all along! Place five new Pawns into play! Place five new QUEENS in play! All of that is possible, but be careful - your opponent might be plotting the same thing!
Downloads include a PDF of the rulebook and a second file with specific rulings, which you are free to ignore and/or set on fire. Cards are included in a PDF and .ODT files, in case you want to make new ones or realize it's completely broken.
