Ripstone Autumn Tournament



Hey everyone,

Wanted to share a quick update to let you know that the Official Ripstone Autumn Tournament will start tomorrow, 29th September, at 10am BST. We're really looking forward to launching the second official tournament as there were some incredibly impressive games played during the first competition.

We made some changes to the way tournaments work during the Summer leg, so we're confident that the Autumn Tournament will run a lot more smoothly! There is a 72 hour (3 day) limit for making a move when playing a tournament game, which will help to keep things moving and advance players through each round more efficiently. We also removed the in game timer to make way for this 72 hour time limit, so make sure to return to your game with plenty of time!

Get ready to bring your A-game and battle for the top spot.

Good luck everyone!

Pantheon DLC Out Now - Environment + Chess Set



Hey everyone,

We're really excited to share that the first DLC pack for Chess Ultra is available now! The Pantheon Game Pack includes a brand new environment and also an exclusive chess set that can be used in various combinations with the existing base sets.

The environment is an exquisitely detailed model of the Pantheon in Rome, bringing a touch of ancient history to Chess Ultra. The pack also includes a hand crafted set of bronze cast Roman chessmen.

We hope you enjoy the new DLC and we'll have more updates about future content soon.

Thanks for your ongoing support!
