Knightmare Chess. The American version of Tempete sur l'Echiquier.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I personally like the artwork, but really I couldn't care less. I'm really shocked that's even a topic of discussion here. It's an excellent game. I've played it hundreds of times, though sadly almost always with the same 2 or 3 people. Really very few players out there. I could suggest lots of little things that might have improved this or that (as with all games), but generally I find it better thoughout and more well ballanced that most games that you'll find on store shelves. I've also found that being good a chess is almost a *disadvantage* as it tempts you spend time trying to play for position, which is rarely worth the effort in this game. Anyway, I encourage everyone to try it. If you have questions, even pretty specific ones, feel free to email me at MChirchill (at) comcast (dot) net.
