Who, and Why?
My Name is Sean...
Some of my favorite memories are of watching late night martial arts movies with my family, and gaming with my friends.
And although I love chess for its pure strategy, its biggest weakness is that it only allows for two players at a time, making it pretty flat at parties.
Shaolin chess allows for up to 6 players at a time, and the move sets are fairly easy. a whole family could learn to play in a night, So there's no reason for someone to be hovering over your shoulder, they can just sit down and join the next match.
After about a year and a half, of thinking, play testing, making lean, fattening up and starting over I've finally found a place I can call almost there.
