Equalizer Dice can be played with either one or both players using a set of dice.
Player begins by rolling the pair of dice to determine which piece they may move. The player may move either of the pieces indicated on the two dice. A player who rolls doubles (the same piece on both dice) may play any legal move. If the pieces that come up on the roll are not legally able to move, the dice must be rolled again.
Castling may be done when the move is legal and when the king, rook, or doubles have been rolled.
A player who is in check can only play a legal response to that check (capturing the checking piece, moving the king, or interposing a piece)
The game ends with checkmate of the king.
I have taken these to 2 tournaments so far and they have been a HUGE hit! At the Arizona State Scholastic chess championships in Flagstaff I brought 100 sets thinking I might sell 30 sets (only 450 players.) After showing it to a couple of the players I quickly had 2 games going with the kids using the dice. We ended the tournament selling 130 sets! I had to back-order an order for one of the Arizona coaches...lol! These are great gifts to hand out to your chess club or to your aspiring chess player. Great for learning how to move the chess pieces and planning on the chess board.
