Instead of conventional black and white
players Anti-Christ Chess features the
Devil plus his cohort of demons
challenging God and his angels.
The traditional King and Queen are
replaced with a single Holy Trinity that
split apart into separate pieces, although
the Holy Ghost part
is an inert figure that
just occupies any square on which it is
On the Devil's side there is an unholy
alliance of Belzeebub and Lilith.
Each piece on the board has additional
powers (i.e. resurrecting a dead pawn;
converting a Dark Coach Horse (knight)
into "My Little Pony" or turning a bishop
into a closet paedophile).
Captured pieces will go into
styled boxes corresponding to heaven
hell..... one sits above the playing board
the top of a ladder, and the other one is
accessed via a set of smoking doors

||This game might be more fun than regular chess.
||Blasphemy. The limitations of ordinary chess are your own.
||//turning a bishop into a closet paedophile//
Said bishop must then (on the next turn) migrate in the direction of the nearest pawn (of either colour).
There are already many mad versions of chess, including 3D (both the Star Trek version and a more 'classical' one). This is an interesting variation.
||What the chess are you talking about, [Murdoch]? This is a nice twist. Just don't go overboard on the powers. Perhaps some powers are one-use and others are everlasting, but weak?
||It's all a bit too "dungeons and dragons" for my taste.
||Something like that was created in the 80ies for several computers. The game was called ARCHON and the war was light against dark. Each piece had a diferent power and the board changed colors simulating day and nigth.
