The inspiration of a young girl playing chess with her dad. Wanting to win, she moved her rook onto a pawn’s square and announced she could now move both pieces together, moving them to the far end of the board she quickly promoted to a queen and beat her dad. Chessplus was born!
Chessplus has all the strategy and beauty of traditional chess, with an additional measure of speed, excitement and queens, making it perfect for traditional chess players and newcomers alike.
Australian Design + Innovation
Our vision was to bring to life this engaging and fast paced game with free flowing and stylish playing pieces. In award-winning industrial designer Adam Laws, we found a creative mind that believed in our vision and shared our passion. Adam has created beautiful pieces designed with a minimalist feel and a tasteful sense of style. The simple robe like joining mechanism seamlessly combines design and functionality so pieces can merge and split easily for a smooth flowing game. Your pieces are available in stylish resin, or for an earthier feel, American Hard Maple.
For the complete experience, the Chessplus Premium Boxset includes a smart and durable wrap around board and laser etched protective case for years of enjoyment.
