Aliens vs Predator Chess from Scenery World Workshopimage © Scenery World Workshop

Wargame system: Chess (19th century) (Chess)

Product: chess

Reviewer: Kadmon, Type: Male, 40s, Preferences: Immersive, realistic approach, simulation over abstraction

Review: Based on a free copy, playtested

* * *

Reading the rules

The rules of chess are easy to learn and easy to follow. It really shows that it has been thorougly playtested.

First play

It was so long time ago I don't remember.

What I liked

If you learn the moves you can instantly start playing - you just won't be very good at it.

What I didn't like

I don't like the memorising aspect of chess, I'd prefer a pure logic-based gameplay. I don't like to spend hours to come up with unbeatable strategies, but I see that my playing partners enjoy that aspect as much (if not more!) as playing the game itself.

Getting it

I have a chess set I inherited from my father, and most of my opponents also have their own set, so I didn't need to buy any. I don't think I'd buy one if I wouldn't already have my own.

Recommendation

It's a solid rule system, and the game is easily available almost anywhere on the planet. It's a good game to spend hours if you like strategical thinking.
