Chess Warfare is a turn-based strategy game that resembles the well-known game of Chess. The things that set it apart from it however are completely new rules that require a different approach and strategical thinking, the option of playing with up to four players (AI or humans) and the fact that Chess Warfare can be played on an actual chessboard with standard chess pieces.

Chess Warfare was thought out to be as a better, more fun alternative to the standard game of Chess. Therefore, there are many things Chess Warfare offers that can't be found in the standard game of Chess.
