Hi, Newgrounds. I thought I would never have to say that, but long time no see. Anyway, many sleepless months went into making this one, so I really hope you like it.

So what is it about, you may ask? Well, what can possibly be more fun than chess pieces that come to life to beat the snot, blood and brains out of each other.

The game is entirely mouse operated.

In case you mess up, you can always "undo turn".

Can you see all 50 animations? The hardest ones to achieve are the best, for instance the king is badass when killing an enemy. If you click on the "executions" button in the main menu it tells you which ones you've seen and which ones you haven't.

I spent some time creating an entertaining in-game "chess rules" section, which thoroughly explains all the rules of the game on 14 pages. Hopefully, beginner and intermediate players will find it useful.

Great chess game, but lacks a "draw"

I enjoyed playing it, scenes are really amusing, although the game should end in a "draw" while there is not enough pieces to end game in a checkmate (i.e. two kings, two king and a knight or a bishop etc.). Besides that, it's a great game.

Very good...

Great game, awesome idea. It even made me play chess, which I barely do. Two minor downsides are the slightly choppy animation from time to time and sometimes illogical moves on behalf of the AI opponent.

Anyways, how do I perform a castling? Actually, *can* I do that?

Very Good!!!

Challenging AI, cool killing animations, & all the nostalgia of Warcraft II sounds! :D
I'm not very good at chess... at my 1st try I got a stalemate with my king alone against 9 enemy pieces. LOL

It was good...

The animations were funny, but the AI wasn't that clever. I'm not a good chess player, and I checkmated the AI in less than 20 moves. It would be cool if you had multiple levels of difficulty. Also, it was kinda hard to tell the difference between the pawns and the bishops, I'd make them a little more distinct. Overall a good game tho, nice work.
