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.


Wow, Daily First, Weekly 3rd in Games, Weekly 8th Overall, Monthly 8th in Games and more than 200K plays? You guys are amazing!

Thank you for playing, have fun and see you soon with a new submission :)

too easy yet a litte hard

at first the computer was a litte hard but manageable but then when i do the three- four move checkmate it falls for it maybe a litte smarter computer but overall the noises from warcraft 2 and the art work worked very well i enjoyed the game alot

One problem

ITs not an automatic stalemate if its just both kings left


Rated 3 / 5 stars


Nice concept but i couldnt escape with my horse. the bishob came right by (lets just say I wish there was a pawn and not a horse) And i couldn't do moves that would normally be valid.

The game has been tested for months and is spotless in terms of legal moves. If you cannot make a move that looks valid at first glance, there must be a good explanation why. There are numerous intricate rules in chess which are not known to players with less experience. I recommend you check out the "chess rules"section in the game. It explaines every rule in chess - starting with simple and getting into more complex.

In your particular case, it may have been a "pin", a situation where you cannot move the horse(knight) because your king is behind it.

Thank you for playing!
