The New Kickstarter campaign introduces a 100% historically accurate chess set

September 30 08:24 2021

Chess 2.0 Evolution is a 100% historically accurate and also amazingly beautiful chess game which is driven by the mission to restore the original rules of ancient warfare in the contemporary chess world.

A visionary German tabletop game startup is all set to revolutionize the chess scene that the world knows of today. The company has recently launched a breakthrough chess set on Kickstarter which is uniquely designed to bring back the “original” rules of ancient warfare which regular chess boards don’t provide. Chess 2.0 Evolution, as it is aptly called, is 100% historically accurate and each chess piece here is a finely detailed figurine modeled after immortal sketches and scriptures of DaVinci, Michelangelo, Polycrates, and  others.

In an exclusive interview, Kristijan Schmidt, the leading spokesperson from Chess 2.0 Evolution team, shared that the regular chess sets follow the rules of “Mad Queen Chess” that was introduced back in the 16th century by some Italian chess enthusiasts. The new game-play was faster than the ancient one and gained huge popularity in a short span. But, the problem is this new style of game-play (that we follow till date) does not abide by the original rules of ancient warfare. This is where Chess 2.0 Evolution comes to redefine the modern chess world and for better.

“The game of chess is based on the theme of ancient warfare. But if the game does not follow the original rules of warfare, it loses out on its very essence. Unfortunately, that’s how we have been playing chess all these times, until now. It’s time to restore the ‘history of chess and bring back the game to its authentic form. Our innovative Chess 2.0 Evolution is driven by these very ethos of restoring the original rules of ancient warfare in the contemporary chess world”, stated  Mr. Schmidt.

The game is played on a 10-by-10 square board featuring 100 grids. The game starts with each player from two sides (white and black) controlling 20 pieces- 6 light infantry, 2 light cavalries, 4 heavy Roman infantry, 2 war elephants, 1 heavy cavalry, 2 javelin range units, and a king.  To win, a player has to take the opponent’s king  out of the game. 

As mentioned above, each chess piece in Chess 2.0 Evolution is a finely detailed figurine of historical figures. And each figurine is intelligently designed to accurately match its relevant historical period, ranging from battle decorations to war clothing to animal armor, and so on. 

“Chess 2.0 evolution brings to you a strikingly beautiful and also 100% historically accurate chess game. We wanted it to be the most amazing ancient warfare-themed chess set and for that, we have sought help from the finest of 2D, 3D, and 4D artists from all across the world. As of now, we are looking for mass production- however, such a cutting-edge project demands robust financial backup and hence this Kickstarter campaign. Your generous support will enable us to bring Chess 2.0 Evolution to life and restore the original game-play of the game that we have been missing out on all these centuries.”

Backers will be rewarded with special Kickstarter discounts on Chess 2.0 Evolution chess figurines, the chess kit, and so on. To show your support for the campaign, please visit Kickstarter
