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.


Fun, cute characters and exciting sound effects Competitive Computer AI to challenge every time

Strange... no en passant is present in this game. Dunno what to think about that one.

Fiendishly hard on master level. Takes a good player to lose.

Awesome game! Cute, fun graphics with everything being simple. Nothing is overwhelming and there's very little text, which is absolutely lovely. However, it would be nice to have a small tutorial IN the game, rather than in the description :) Although, it does force people to look at your lovely spelling and grammar! I also love the Local PvP option as well, though, I think that the Train section could be expanded into a challenge thing, challenging you to do things in just one or two turns, rather than the same mission for everyone. It could help you learn how to do the characters, or just have fun ^^ All in all, a fabulous game! Good job to everyone who helped make this!

Thanks for this very thoughtful and thorough feedback! We have been contemplating a more expanded version of the tutorial / first time user experience - and getting more people to understand the rules - This is probably going to be the first thing in our next discussions - Cheers and have a good one, BubbaYasai

Amazing game, but I beat the first 3 difficulties first try, and the 4th is seriously bugged. The opponent wasn't following the 'you must kill a piece if you can' rule.
