Material: resin

Merge pieces to combine their strengths creating powerful new forces, then split them when desired.

Discover fast new ways to attack, defend and promote.

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.

How To Play
Apply the rules of Chess, plus these extra options for an exciting evolution of the traditional game:

Create new merged pieces by moving any piece onto to the square of another piece of the same colour (except for the king).

Move merged pieces as either of their joined pieces, or split them by moving either piece away individually.

Gain extra queens quickly by moving a merged piece containing a pawn to the far end of the board, with 3 extra queens included for a knockout finish.

Note: The merging or splitting of a piece is considered a move. Individual pieces must always move according to their traditional abilities. When captured or promoted the merged piece leaves the board.

Use with the supplied board or use with your own existing timber or marble board.

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 industrialdesigner 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.
