Ancient Board Game Piece Discovered

Play the world's greatest game instantly!

No Stress Chess works just like standard chess. The difference? Your moves are determined by randomly-drawn playing cards!

Each card depicts a piece and how it can be moved.

The player with white pieces begins the game by drawing a card from the shuffled deck. They then get to move the piece indicated by that card any way they want - So long as it's within that pieces abilities.

Pawn, knight, bishop, rook, queen, king - What you move is entirely up to fate. HOW you move is entirely up to you!

Follow the cards, master the movements, and take the initiative to take down the king and win the game.

Then, once you've had enough fun with level one, move onto levels two and three. This time, instead of drawing cards randomly, you get a hand of cards to choose from - 3 for level 2 and 5 for level 3.

No Stress Chess is great for teaching beginners all about the rules and movements of chess, yet surprisingly fun for advanced players too.

Does your opponent have the card to play his rook and take your queen? Playing with cards adds a fun twist of risk!

Ready to take on the real thing? Just flip the whole board over and play! - The detailed instructions included standard chess rules too.

Perfect for beginners and a fun twist for advanced players, No Stress Chess is a must-have for any chess-playing family.

    great teaching tool

    It was kind weird how quickly this helped my son learn (somewhat) how to play chess. There's lots of steps missing, such as castleing and en passant, but it's a great way to get started!

    Loving chess
    Posted 7/24/2014 by Robert W. Reynolds

    We were playing chess on the first day, and already seeing the boys understand the game. The level one game approach is easy and stress free. We were already moving to the next level on day 2. Tough game, but the cards make it easy to learn.

    No Stress Chess
    Posted 6/27/2014 by CHRIS JOHNSON

    My 6 year old and I saw this game while waiting in the lobby of a "math tutoring" center. My 6 year old who loves games wanted to play it, and I was reluctant because he is , well 6. But you cannot say no to this child so we tried out "Level 1". We both LOVED it. The game teaches real chess piece movement, real strategy, at a level that he can understand. I was blown away. I have not ventured into higher levels, but I am sure it just gradually reduces the dependence on the cards (which tells you which piece to move), till you are finally playing full blown chess. A 7 year old girl wanted to play while in the lobby. A 6 year old playing chess with a 7 yr old in the age of electronics? 5 stars for this game!! We play a game almost daily.
