Rotorblades Chess is a cross between Circular Chess and Trigonal Chess. It is played on a circular tessellation of 150 triangular-shaped cells. The name of the game is inspired by BLADES, an earlier game by Graeme C. Neatham, and refers to both the round shape of the board and the blade-like shape of the cells.
