Chess is a good game of strategy but real battlefield tactics move at a faster pace. Fortunately, this chess game has taken out the slow politeness of taking turns and challenges you to command the assault in real-time!

Select as many pieces as you want to make their respective movement. After that, you only need to wait for their individual cooldowns to move them again. Watch out though, as the enemy is constantly on the move too. It is definitely an incredible test of quick thinking and great rewards await those who manage to conquer the other side.

Level up as you either conquer the game’s “Story Mode” or test your mettle against other players. Use the points you earn to quicken the movement of different pieces or reduce their cooldowns. You will also earn Pawns that can be used to purchase skins as well as special crowns that grant your King a powerful, game-changing ability. A game of chess does not have to drag on when you can rally the pieces of charge forward!

▲ Send each individual piece to battle all at once! Mind their cooldowns and adjust strategies accordingly.

▲ Strengthen your army by levelling up and purchasing crowns that transform your Kings!

▲ Customize your chess army further with a variety of funny skins.
