Bailey broke down the major game elements in his tweet:
- Although the name implies the game is chess related the only similarities you have is that the map is a chessboard and you’ve pieces (units) that are placed on the board. Pieces have different races, classes, abilities and can synergize or be upgraded with other similar pieces.
- Each round begins with the option to purchases pieces, ever player is shown five random pieces from a shared pool. Pieces are purchased using the gold you earned, your income amount is affected by your win/losing streak and interest.
- Every round either a clone of another players chessboard or creeps appear on your other half of the chessboard. They fight, if all your units die, you lose hp per alive enemy units and the board gets reset to pre-fight. Repeat for every round.
