All Queens Chess

If you follow my blog, you know my family and I love ThinkFun Games. All Queens Chess is another fun game we played at our last game night. I host game night almost every Sunday with my friends and family. This game was a hit, everyone loved this new version of chess.

As you can tell by the name, you're playing with all queen pieces. One player has 6 red queens and the other player has 6 black queens. The red queens go on the black squares, and the black queens go on the red squares. Players chose who goes first and alternate turns. The objective of the game is to be the first player to get four of your queens in a straight line, horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

Once the game begins, the spaces covered by crowns are considered normal spaces, and they can be used by either player on any legal move. Queens can move any number of space as long as no other queen is in the way and it is in a straight line. Queens can not jump over one another. You can not push another queen off an occupied space. Players can move one queen in any direction horizontally, vertically or diagonally. This is a fun game that sharpens your mind. It is great for the whole family ages 8 and up. I definitely recommend this game. I received this game in exchange for an honest review you can purchase this game HERE!
