Minecraft Redditor creates a playable chess game with just redstone
A Minecraft Redditor by the name of u / mattbatwings2 recently created a fully playable chess set with only redstone components. For those who don’t know, it is extremely difficult to create complex redstone contraptions without using control blocks. This makes this chess game even more impressive.
As seen in the post above, this chessboard is really complex, with a lot of different options. This map even allows Minecraft players to perform the castle maneuver, which must have been extremely difficult to program. It is one of the most impressive redstone contraptions seen on Minecraft Reddit.

The message begins with a bird’s eye view of the entire chessboard. Obviously the original poster (OP) put a lot of work into the design of this build as it is very pleasing to the eye.
The PO then begins to present the mechanisms of the construction. Each piece is moved by the pressure of a button located on each square. To move a piece, the OP presses a button on which the piece is located and presses another button on the square in which he wants the piece to move. This is an extremely fluid design that allows for an easy Minecraft chess match.
The construction of chess is so advanced that it even has a built-in castle mechanism, which is a way to protect the king’s piece. This is just the icing on the cake for this amazing fully redstone Minecraft chess set.
Due to the impressive nature of this construction, the publication managed to win a huge 18,000,000 upvotes in a single day. Many Minecraft Redditors had a lot to say on this chessboard.
In this thread, the OP provides more information about this fantastic Minecraft build. They state that this version does not check whether the move is legal or not, hoping players will stick to the real chess rules.
Checking the board for legal moves would make the game much slower, which is not recommended for a fun experience.
One Minecraft Redditor recommends that the OP build a chess clock for players who enjoy playing timed chess.
It’s a fantastic idea, and it shouldn’t be too difficult to create with simple redstone.
Another Minecraft Redditor asked if this redstone chess board checked for legal moves, which the PO clarified earlier.
If the OP decided to add rules to this Minecraft chess game, it would run extremely slowly. It won’t be a fun experience for players looking to play a quick game of chess.
A few Minecraft Redditors complimented this version stating that they couldn’t even create this chess set with the actual code.
In reality, it should be easier to code a chess game than to create it in redstone, which is why this version is so awesome.
