Equalizer Chess Dice - Set of 2
The equalizer dice make the game of chess closer to “equal” when one player's skill level is much higher than the opponent's. Sick of not having anyone to play because you are SO good at chess? Are all your friends so good you never have a chance to win? Or, are you just looking for a new chess variant to make the game more interesting? If so, you need a set of the Equalizer Dice! These are great gifts for chess clubs or to your aspiring chess player.
Very easy rules on how to play:
Die #1: King, Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook, Pawn
Die #2: Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook, Pawn, Pawn
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.
The addition of chess dice to the game for beginners is a great help. For the experienced chess player it adds chance to the game. No longer can a grand master bull doze a novice off the board. It takes skill to make the most of your dice roll and when the better player is restricted by the dice. Suddenly, the playing field is less threatening. It allows the new player to learn the pieces and throttles back the more experienced player. I use them for solitaire chess as it is more satisfying to me than computer chess.
