Take your chess game to another level with tschess, available for iOS and Android


When it comes to prestige, the World Chess Championship is the greatest achievement a professional player can achieve. Unfortunately, when the event last took place in 2018, every match ended in a draw, for the first time in human history. The event was so boring that the tournament scheduled to take place in 2020 was literally canceled [0]. Failures are dead. Failures remain dead. And we killed him.

Fortunately for fans of the game, from these smoldering ashes has emerged a new game, faster and more strategic. One in all better suited to our contemporary lives. This game is known as “The End of Chess“, and its name is tschess.

Unlike most incarnations of the game, tschess does not rely on novelties or gimmicks, but rather offers a new take on how the game is played. It does this by allowing players to determine the starting positions for each of their pieces on the board, effectively eliminating the King’s Gambit and all the other opening strategies that can kill a game before it even has a chance. to begin.

At this point, some chess enthusiasts might point out that the idea of ​​customizing the starting order of chess pieces is nothing new. In fact, Bobby Fischer, one of the greatest champions in modern history, came up with his own variation of random chess known as Fischer’s Random Chess. The developer of Tschess is no stranger to the concept, but aims to improve it.

For example, a major problem with Fischer’s Random Chess is that it takes away the player’s sense of agency, placing the starting setup of both players in the hands of Almighty Providence. In tschess, it is in the mind of each player to create his starting configuration on the last two rows. In tschess, both players also have an equal chance to determine their setup, but the outcome will depend entirely on their ingenuity and skill and creating the best opening possible.

In short, tschess is the natural successor to Fisher chess and promises to revitalize the old tired chess game for a new generation. Still don’t understand? See for yourself.

You can find tschess available for free download now from the App Store and google play.
