Weaponized Chess:chess+weapons

NEW for WeaponizedChess:

Play an Internet Game against anyone in the world! This newest version allows you to use your Internet connection together with Google Play to play a game over the Internet.

Play a game using local WiFi! If you do not have an Intenet connection, do not have access to your own wireless router, you can still play a game against someone else with a mobile device which has WiFi and this game. They have to be within 105 feet of you though. Fear not, you can still play a game using just one device by handing the device back and forth.

The Fix Install capability on the latest version allows you to adjust the game so it will run on any mobile device. You can always use Emergency Square Select so you never have to touch the game board to move a piece.

This new version is hardware tested to run on a Nexus 7, 9, 10, or 6P. You have to hold the 6P in landscape mode to work well on the 6P.

Do you like to play chess? If you do then you will like to play WeaponizedChess because it is similar in nature. If you are someone who did play chess in the past but stopped then you can rediscover the thrill you used to feel playing chess. If you quit because of boredom with the limited choices available in regular chess then you will find that there is always something new you can try in WeaponizedChess. Your pieces have WEAPONS they can pick up and use. When you played chess in the past did you ever wish you could move TWO pieces during your move, not just one? In WeaponizedChess you can often move more than one of your pieces during your turn. Tired of playing chess against people who have spent a lot of time building up book knowledge about chess? Play this game instead. You don't like playing chess by mail or email remotely with someone because you fear they may cheat (get advice from a chess-playing computer program)? Play this game instead.

WeaponizedChess is also an experiment in creating a game where a human player will always have an advantage over any conceivable artificial-intelligence player. This is achieved by deliberately and radically increasing the exponential burden of a computer player but in a way that any human can naturally handle. Humans will always be better guessers than computers and stealth (and other features of the game) ensheathe this nature into the game. Strike back against the encroaching machine intelligences! Play this game which resists their evil intelligence instead of regular chess which is more susceptible to their devious planning!

WeaponizedChess is derived from regular chess but makes many changes. It adds weapons, three-dimensionality, and tunable stealth. It is intended to be a more modern version of chess. Old chess is about knights capturing kings. Modern war is not like THAT at all. WeaponizedChess is about stealthy, weapon-armed pieces contending on a modern battlefield. Have no fear, the basic nature of chess is retained: black-and-white checkerboard, one side moves then the other, defeating the enemy king is still the goal.

WeaponizedChess has an integrated board editor, a type of game notation which describes a game, a set of known popular color themes, and a set of pre-defined starting boards. This Android version is translated to 53 languages.

Here is the bad news: this Android version does not have an AI. It will not, by itself, play a game with you.

Modern conflict is heavily dependent on military technology. In WeaponizedChess there are choppers, jets, tanks, submarines, destroyers, and combat engineers whose characteristics have been translated to a chess board. Low-observable assets play a deadly game of cat and mouse with an opponent. Infantrymen use jump-packs to fly over the battlefield. Combat scuba invisibly travels under the surface to attack.
