THE GAME

Dark Chess is a game of chess full of magic, traps and enemy army concealed by the Fog of War. Reworked and enhanced game rules will bring immense joy to die-hard chess-lovers and casual players alike. Fight your way to the top of the ladder among other players, compete with your friends or challenge the artificial intelligence. Take the crown and become the Champion.

IT'S DARK

'The Fog of War' conceals opposing armies. Enemy units become visible in proximity of one square around friendly units or within a striking move. Only the first unit under direct threat is shown. This adds a great amount of unpredictability and a scouting aspect to the game. Makes it exceptionally tactical.

IT'S SOCIAL

Invite your Friends to play with you. Share your glorious Victories and noble Defeats. Climb to the top together.
