A colourful reimagining of traditional Chess, this is the mobile version of the tabletop game Colour Chess, awarded ‘Game of the Year’ in 2019 by the Mind Sports Olympiad and also Mensa-nominated.

It focuses on skill and creativity rather than studying set openings, as you use the colours to force and trap your opponent with a game that is different every time, yet retains the feel and logic of Chess positioning.


“Much more satisfying than Chess960.. the game can get very complex tactically.. It sounds odd, but the way you end up playing is extremely intuitive to Chess players” - Chess Grandmaster Matthew Sadler

“This level of thinking and strategy adds a huge dose of challenge and planning into the average chess game. You can quickly start manipulating your opponent.” - Big Boss Battle

“A fun and unusual take on Chess which gets your brain working creatively, adding a whole new dimension and devilish restrictions” - Amanda Ross, Casual Chess Café London
