Call for players: WarChest (chess-like game)

Postby josta59 » Tue Mar 14, 2017 11:55 am

Hey all, I just tried a game called WarChest that's been around for a little while. It's played on a chess board, but the pieces have very unique abilities and are meant to be collected for use in later games. Thought we could have some fun with that concept.

My first try--watch out for Death!


It's a really quick play, which is perfect for us so we don't take months to get through a game. And I'll keep track of the pieces you collect for later games.

Any takers?

Ooooo, I missed this! This sounds interesting. Can multiple players play, as in team? Are the rules sharable, and if so can you post them? I'm interested but, I'd like to see some other players get a crack at this.

It's a one-against-one game. Here are the rules, provided free by the publishers.

I'll read the rules for a basic idea of how to play....I'll follow your lead, if you don't mind.

Here's the thread when you're ready. I've already set up my first piece.
