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.

Something that takes getting used to but definitely a new idea. A decent 3/5 time-killer.

Nice game, way too easy though even on hardest difficulty. Also a skin customization feature would not be out of place. Music gets a little obnoxious after a few games. Overall I enjoyed it for a time.

The counter-intuitive nature of such a game makes it harder for the people who play standard chess to adjust. It's a fun game to play, but the harder difficulties could be more challenging.

You should download the iOS version and challenge a friend if it's getting a bit easy beating the AI - cheers
