Want a sneak peak on some of those games? Awesome! Let us take a look at some of the Chessarama games:

What if… chess pieces were high-fantasy heroes fighting a mighty Dragon?

In Dragon Slayer, you need to push your pawn to the end of a path in order to kill the mighty dragon. But it will not be that easy! The dragon attacks the board every time the pawn moves and every undefended piece will die. So you need the help of your friends (Rooks, Bishops and Knights) to protect your pawn all along the way to the dragon’s core. This is a strategic Chessarama game for chess enthusiasts of all levels. Sacrifices will be necessary along the way, so be ready!

What if… chess pieces were samurais fighting a legendary Ronin in feudal Japan?

In Lady Ronin, chess meets sokoban as you have never seen before. You play with a legendary Ronin (a chess queen) and you need to eliminate the other pieces in order to get close to the Shogun and kill it. Pieces move like in chess, but push each other like in sokoban. Can you pass through legions of samurais to achieve your Chessarama goal?

What if… the chess board was a soccer field and chess pieces strive not for checkmate, but for goals?

In Soccer Chess you will play a soccer match using chess pieces and tactics! As in chess (or soccer!) you will need to think 2-3 moves ahead if you want to break through the adversary’s defenses and strike a beautiful goal!

What if chess could be reinvented over and over again?

Well, it can. It will.
This is just the beginning.
