Rhiassan Live Chess

The Are No Checkmates On This Field.

Live Chess has been a cornerstone of Queen of Hearts for the greater part of two decades. On that field of battle two armies must employ their skill, wit, and strategy in a manner unparalleled elsewhere in Realms tournaments. Truly it is one of the most intense and thrilling war maneuvers out there.

In Rhiassan Live Chess: The Board Game, that same intensity and thrill comes to the table top as two players compete to kill one another's kings. Activate one of your pieces with the correct card and you may use it to make a chess move. Each step along the way, attempt combat with enemy pieces by playing further cards and attempting to score hits with your die rolls.

All of the classic moments of Live Chess make it into this game. The queen's heroic charge across the board, laying waste to pieces in it's way. The long shot taken by the rook to fell the king in one hit. Even the slow, methodical push across the board with several pieces to simply overwhelm the enemy's defenses.

It's all in Rhiassan Live Chess: The Board Game. You may never play regular chess again.
