Chess the Gathering is a mix of Chess and Magic the Gathering. Boards are currently made up of “rooms” which are chess boards (8x8). Simple boards are just one room, others are multiple and can be connected by corridors of tiles (*we’ll update the editor to be more flexible soon).
Players start with 2 “twins” which are essentially kings. If either twin dies the players lose. Each player has a hand of cards which they use to spawn creatures on the board, and cast spells on them to change their behavior. There’s also a wall & swamp spell.
The game currently supports 2-4 players.
Moves diagonally (Bishop)
Moves horizontally/vertically (Rook)
Moves both diagonally and horizontally/vertically (Queen)
Swamp (piece): causes pieces traveling across it to stop on that tile. They can move off of it on their next movement. Also blocks twins line of sight.
Wall (piece): 2x1 tiles long, can be placed either horizontally or vertically across 2 tiles (‘r’ key rotates during placement). Pieces cannot travel through walls. A creature may sacrifice itself to break the wall (works like taking a normal piece). Also blocks twins line of sight.
