Flip Chess is played by two players on a 4 by 8 square board.
The 32 pieces are shuffled and then each of them is randomly placed face-down on each square.
The first player turns over a piece and the color of the first piece uncovered will be the side of the first player.
The game starts by having all pieces covered. each step you can either move, attack or flip a piece.
Pieces cannot be moved or used before they are flipped and face up.
Pieces can move or attack its neighboring position. No diagonal moving or attacking is allowed.
Pieces are ordered by rank, and they can be killed only by pieces of equal or higher ranks.
An exception is General, which cannot kill but can be killed by Soldiers.
There are 3 modes in Flip chess
- Death Match
Try and conquer all the pieces of your opponent. The game ends when one side has no more pieces.
- Critical Time
Attack and kill off your enemy as fast as you can.
Bonus for quick kills. the game ends after 3 mins, or when the time button is clicked (only enabled after 2 mins)
- General Hunt
Aim for the general. you win the game by capturing the enemy's general.
Pieces rank in the following order:
General> Castle> Horse> Cannon> Guard>Bishop> Soldier
Cannons also are special pieces in which they attack by jumping over exactly one piece, and can kill any opponent piece at such locations.
I've been playing Chinese chess (half board and full) for many years and the rankings for this game is wrong!!! This would be a great app if you fix this mistake so I can recommend to my friends!
