Product Overview

Chess is an ancient game, simulating warfare, that has been played by Muslim Califs, medieval kings, emperors, generals, peasants, university professors, high school students, and lay people alike. The rules are simple, but the strategies are complex. Entire libraries have been written about the various strategies of the game: openings, the middle game, and the end game. The book you hold in your hands, however, is not one of them. Elven Chess aims to recreate the excitement of the battlefield where the outcome of battle is uncertain: when capturing a simple square on the chessboard, that was once a certainty, now can turn on the luck of the chess player and the roll of simple die. Some may call this blasphemy, some may call it ingenious, but all will feel the sweat bead on their brow over the battles that will be fought on a simple eight-by-eight chessboard. A game as old as the major religions themselves, can be made new again!
