Chessplus is played under standard Chess rules with one small change – players can Combine and Split their pieces. Watch now or keep reading.

The Quick Rules:

Apply the rules of Chess, plus these new moves for a faster, more exciting and addictive game:

* Combine pieces using traditional moves.
* Combined pieces can move as either piece.
* Combined pieces can Split.
* Combined pieces can Promote.

How It Works:

Move a Bishop onto a Pawn, the Combined Bishop/Pawn can move as a Bishop or a Pawn.

For a Super Piece combine a Queen and a Knight and move as a Queen or a Knight.

Fast Promotions - Move a Combined piece containing a Pawn to the far side and you have an Extra Queen.

Watch Out!  If your Combined piece is taken you lose 2 regular pieces.

And Yes!  Combined pieces can Split at anytime, simply move either piece away individually.
