Noble Celts: Game Review. Review of commercial Chess variant set.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

It's too bad Ben Good didn't try a couple more games on the Noble Celts board. Yes, this board is challenging but the pros far outweigh the cons when it comes to game play. While the scope of movement of some of the pieces (especially the bishop) are intimidating at first, I found that within three games my mind had absorbed the board layout and, since I couldn't rely on any of the strategy of the square board (and neither could my opponent), I found it an exhilarating new way to play the old game.
