June Giveaway: Solitaire Chess

June Giveaway: Solitaire Chess

Solitaire Chess is a brilliant concept. It’s a logic game that not only helps chess players with their board vision and their calculation, but it’s also very accessible and easy to learn. With very little instruction, anybody can play this great game - and adjust the difficulty as much as they would like. And this month we’re giving away a copy to one lucky follower!

The only prerequisite for playing is knowing how the pieces move. Other than that, the game plays like that old peg game where you have to hop over pegs and remove them until you only have one peg left. Every single move must be a capture, and if you are left with only one chess piece in the end you have solved the puzzle. It starts out easy, but can become brutally difficult.

So I’m very excited that we’re now going to give away a copy of this fantastic game to one of our followers. Now one of you can fall in love with this challenge as well.
