What is so unique about the game of PlunderChess? PlunderChess is traditional chess with a fun, novel twist. In its simplest definition, it is chess that allows each player the ability to strengthen their chessmen as the game is played out. This strengthening comes as the chessmen capture and “plunder” additional moving capabilities directly from their opponent’s pieces. For example, if a bishop captures a rook, the capturing bishop will be permitted to attach to itself a “rook vest” (designed to easily slide over and encircle the main body of the chess piece). That “vest” now empowers the bishop to move as a rook for one future move whenever it chooses. It is this unique "plundering" feature that makes PlunderChess a highly addictive, “got-to-play-more” game!
