"DRAGON CHESS"

Try a little something new and play Dragon Chess

Dragon Chess has the same set of rules as Chess but there are a few additions to the game.

Dragon Chess has two Dragons who can move up to 3 squares in any direction two extra pawns and an extended chess board with two wings on the sides. The extra squares dynamically change the way you play the game as they offer more power to the bishops. They also allow you to safely hide your King behind a row of defenders.

How do you improve one of the world's oldest and most popular games? Just ask Lex Parker, Dragon Master of Dragon Chess Inc., which is releasing a new chess game that incorporates a powerful new player on an expanded board.

"Dragon Chess® changes moves that have been practiced and remembered for hundreds of years," says Parker. "It puts the novice and the master on equal terms. Everyone starts fresh so it's your brain working, not just your memory."

The new player - called the Dragon - is second in power to the Queen and sits on the far side of each Castle. Like the Queen, the Dragon may move in any direction but advances up to three squares at a time in line. All other players remain in their traditional positions with their normal powers.

The extra piece expands the traditional chessboard from 64 to 100 squares, with additional fields of 12 squares flanking each side. Four extra pawns guard the Dragons at the set-up. "The beauty of Dragon Chess®, which uses the same rules of historical chess, is that it keeps it simple," says Parker, who says Dragon Chess® has been in development for over four years. "It's not a whole new learning experience but it is an entirely new game."

According to Parker, Dragon Chess® represents the next evolution of chess, which has undergone numerous changes since its birth in India in the 6th century. The modern chess played today was invented just 500 years ago, when more power was allotted to the Queen and Bishop.
