How to play?
The aim of the Anti Chess is to sacrifice your pieces. The game is setup on a chess board in the same order as traditional chess and plays the same way too, but with a few interesting rules :

1. When a player's piece is in a position to kill the opponents' piece, the player has to commit that move.

2. The game is over when one of the player has all of their pieces killed
The game is not over if the King is killed. There is no checkmate in Anti Chess

3. There is no castling

4. When a pawn reaches the end of the board, it gets promoted to a Queen

5. If there is a situation where no player can make any more moves, the player with the lesser number of chess pieces wins the game.

Bonus Features:

Anti Chess is a stand alone app that doesn't require an internet connection and can be played offline.

Anti Chess is the labor of love by game programmer, Srinavin Nair and artist, Ajay Karat.
