SuperChess™

SuperChess™ is an awesome chess variant created by Chess Power. SuperChess™ gives many of the pieces super-powers making for an exciting and fast-paced battle.

The Rook, Knight and Bishop all get significant upgrades. If you are familiar with Embassy Chess, Gothic Chess or Fairy Chess some of the upgrades will be familiar to you. The Queen, King and Pawns remain the same as traditional Chess.

The start position is the same as traditional chess. All the other rules of chess such as check, castling and en passant remain the same as traditional Chess.

The Chancellor

The Chancellor replaces the Rook. The Chancellor can move like a rook or a knight.

The Camel

The Camel replaces the knight. The camel moves like an elongated knight, instead of two squares forward and one square to the left or right, it moves three squares forward and one square to the left or right.

The Arch-Bishop

The arch-bishop replaces the traditional bishop in Chess. It can move like a bishop or a knight.

The really fantastic thing about SuperChess™ is you can play it on a normal chess board with normal chess pieces. Ok, you will get some funny looks from spectators and even onlookers explaining to you how chess pieces move. But you will be having a blast because SuperChess™ is super-charged chess at it's best. Try it for yourself and you will be hooked!

Here is an example game illustrating how SuperChess™ is played.

White moves her Chancellor from h1 to g3.

Black moves his camel from b8 to c5.

White moves her camel to b1 to c4.

Black shocks his opponent by moving his camel from c5 to f4, checkmating his opponent! This in fact happened in the first game of SuperChess ever played.
