ChessPlus is played under standard chess rules with one difference – players can combine their pieces. Watch now

  1. Players combine pieces by moving an individual piece, as it traditionally, moves, onto the square of another piece of the same colour.
  2. A 'Combined’ piece can move as either of it's joined pieces.
  3. A 'Combined’ piece can split by moving either piece away individually.
  4. A ‘Combined’ piece containing a pawn that makes it to the other end of the board it is promoted to a Queen.
  5. When a ‘Combined’ piece is captured or promoted the ‘Combined’ piece leaves the board.
