Welcome to the twisted world of Anti Chess.

Anti Chess is one of the most popular variant of chess. The objective of the game is for each player to lose all their pieces.
Play this free fun game of Anti-chess on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod.

How to play?
The aim of the Anti Chess is to sacrifice your pieces. The game is setup on a chess board in the same order as traditional chess and plays the same way too, but with a few interesting rules :

1. When a player's piece is in a position to kill the opponents' piece, the player has to commit that move.

2. The game is over when one of the player has all of their pieces killed
The game is not over if the King is killed. There is no checkmate in Anti Chess

3. There is no castling

4. When a pawn reaches the end of the board, it gets promoted to a Queen

5. If there is a situation where no player can make any more moves, the player with the lesser number of chess pieces wins the game.


This game supports one player, where you play against a computer AI. It also supports two players (local PVP) mode.

Seems like a fun game, though the Unity Player is so buggy in this that I can't even play the Training levels without it stopping up.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I love this game a lot. I find it very easy to beat even the master difficulty on this game. It is very fun to play with other people and I find it is very easy to learn and master if you already know how to play regular chess. If I could give it a 6 out of 5 I would.

Terrible anti-chess. You can't pick what side you play, the AI always plays white, which means at higher difficulties the game is nearly impossible because white can force a victory with one of a few different opening moves.

I can't believe something so simple as being able to pick your side isn't in this game. What a lazy and incompetent thing for the programmer to do.

Seems simple, but hard to master. Can't stop listening to the music either!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great one for those who wants to feel good with thier loss :P
It seems simple if you are normally defeated one rather than you winner. Weird, opposite game but very positive!
