Introduction: 4 Player Chess

Picture of 4 Player Chess

Hello. This is nice game. I made this about year ago and now I want to upload this idea to instructables.

Step 1: Base

I simply made this wood and painted it with black and white. Then I made lines with soldering iron.

Step 2: Chessmen

I bought two packs of chessmen and painted them.

Step 3: Let's Play!

Awesome - a true field of battle - would be very cool to get some chess masters on one of these, it would be a bloodbath - in the nicest possible sense.

Thought this was great INST and have even posted it on the F/B group PROTO - TYPE - CHAT as a COOL BUILD, if you would like to pop over some time it would be great to hear about where you get your ideas and inspiration.
Loved your other post about replacing the missing phone button - low tech but still a great way to save a costly bill for repair.
Nice job.

I made a 4 way chess set back when I was in High School. So much fun!

Yup!

You will notice that the rook pawn of every player is able to immediately capture an opposing pawn from its own starting square, this variant therefore inevitably starts out with a bloody massacre of the pawn structure and damages the quality of the game that follows. Most variants of this type therefore use flaps that are three squares deep rather than just two, so each starting position is set back by one, and pawns cannot immediately capture from their starting squares.
