Shaolin Chess came from wanting a pure strategy game, one that required cunning and courage. a game that required you to take risks, sacrifice and keep moving forward, rather than rely on cash or the roll of a dice.

I admit, at first the game seems challenging, but if you keep in mind it is only two pages worth of instructions, you'll soon realize the game is driven by the movesets.


i did my best to capture the strengths of the most iconic shaolin styles and put them into a team called "the 5 Guards", focusing on the Tiger, Crane, Snake, Dragon, and Monkey styles.

There are 4 basic game styles you can choose from, each one derived and inspired from classic game modes like, Capture the flag, king of the hill, and death match. (Found Above)


most game styles can be set into team matches, or you can just brawl it out in a free for all. so there's incredible diversity within the game.
