Print-and-play Version
This is a downloadable rulebook for Chess 2 and requires that you have a regular Chess set to play.
The Basics
Chess 1 was a hit, no doubt about it. Chess 2 seeks to build on the greatness of the original while addressing a few problems and also going in a new direction. There are now SIX ARMIES to choose from, rather than just 1. There's a new win condition for crossing the midline of the board with your king (in addition to your grandpa's checkmates). There's also a double-blind bidding mechanic called dueling that lets a captured piece sometimes take down the attacking piece with it.
  • New win condition of midline invasion means far fewer draws and no memorized endgames.
  • 6 different armies to choose from, meaning 21 different matchups.
  • A new double-blind bidding mechanic called dueling makes memorized openings even more impractical, tests your valuation skills, and emphasizes adaptation and reading the opponent's tendencies.
Did you notice?

A digital version of Chess 2 will launch on the OUYA first and other platforms later.
