Good Design Australia - AWARD WINNER
WINNER of "Best in Class" Design Award thanks to industrial designer Adam Laws at Nielsen Design. The resulting game is unique and beautiful, with pieces seamlessly joining together and separating with ease. With amended playing rules, the resulting game is fast, fun, complex and utterly compelling.
Kickstarter - SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED
Chessplus, the exciting evolution of chess, began as a creative move by a nine year old playing chess with her dad. She joined her rook and pawn – Chessplus was born. This modern and elegantly designed game allows pieces to be seamlessly merged and separated, creating a faster, more dynamic game.

I like this one quite a bit. It’s super simple to grasp if you play chess. It tends to quicken game because there is a power surge here, since you can work toward multiple queens in play earlier than any regular chess game, which in itself will endear Chessplus to some.
