Get a game review of the Chessheads: Chessboard Trading Card Game, right here!

You know chess? It's that game with the checker board and all those pieces that move in strange patterns. It's a classic strategy game that's been around forever. Well, how about mixing up the classic game with exploding pieces, giant blob-monsters and a fantasy story? That's what the Chessheads chess card game is all about. Check out our review.

What's the Deal With Chessheads?

Chessheads isn't a game by itself, it's something you add to a normal game of chess to spice it up - like adding ketchup to a burger for that extra taste sensation. It comes as a pack of cards, each player draws one card per turn and each card lets you do something wacky to the chess match.

Check and Mate with Chessheads

Doing wacky stuff to a chess game will totally wreck the strategy, right? Nope - even if a card lets you mash a bunch of pieces into a giant chess-blob-monster (and one does!) the strategy is still there, just cooler. Plus, you can collect the whole set of cards, and there's a story to the game that involves evil alien monsters and stuff.

Chessheads - Strategy Blunders

The trickiest part about Chessheads is learning the rules for the cards, some of them take a while to figure out. You'll also want to grab a bunch of extra chess pieces - for cards that bring extra pieces onto the board. There are tokens included in the game packs, but real pieces are way cooler!

Chessheads - Final Move

The bottom line is that Chessheads is a very cool way to add a dose of action to chess, which can get pretty dull. Once you get the extra pieces and sort out the rules, it's a blast.

Chessheads Thumbs Up:

  • Adds cool moves to chess.
  • Doesn't ruin the strategy.
  • Cool card artwork and stories.

Chessheads Thumbs Down:

  • The rules are tricky at first.

Chessheads: The Chessboard TCG Rating: 4
