IMAGINE PLAYING CHESS LIKE YOU ALWAYS DO, BUT THIS TIME IT'S DIFFERENT.
An out of the blue momentary thought.... surfacing in 1988.... and today, materialized! We are well pleased to introduce to you PlunderChess®, a new and contagious slant to the age old classic game of chess. What makes PlunderChess® different is upon making a capture, the chess piece doing the kill is allowed to "take on" (plunder) added moving capabilities directly from its spoils, and use those newly acquired capabilities on one future move.
The Game of PlunderChess®
The objective of PlunderChess® is the same as traditional chess… to win the game by placing your opponent’s king into checkmate. As the game develops, battles ensue and captured opposing chessmen (“material”) will be removed from play, one piece at a time. The more material a player captures, the weaker his/her opponent becomes and the greater the likelihood of achieving the goal of checkmate. PlunderChess® goes beyond traditional chess by allowing players the added strategy of strengthening their chess pieces as the game progresses. This strengthening comes as the chess pieces gain additional moving capabilities acquired from their captured opponent’s pieces. It is this unique feature that makes playing PlunderChess® a “got-to-play-more” game!
