Dragon Chess – New Chess Variant – Medieval Theme – AncientChess.com

This is a very engaging game, easy to learn for the chess player and very rich in possibilities. Dragon chess has the regular moder chess array with two dragons — fierce in-fighters who massively increase the potential for viscious attacks as the game progresses. A large and lovely realization with classic Austrian figurative pieces and a glossy faux marble playing surface. — AncientChess.com


  1. They forgot to add firebreathing to the dragon. It should be able to kill multiple pieces in a straight line and fly over pieces. The wide board is actually the most innovative part of the game design.

  2. In start of video I were asking myself how can the dragon move and I thought maybe like a queen, then maybe limited to 3 squares.. ^^ the only thing I were wrong is that I thought that it could jump like a knight.

  3. 100% NOT like how I thought dragons would move.

  4. I love how your still active after all these years. I am creating my very own board game and I was wondering could I show it to you. It is based around chess but different units.

  5. I have made a chess variant. What is your email?

  6. I like this variant layout. I've found a neat way to make all these games by hand and they are actually more appreciated when finished. It looks beautiful however I hate the dragon piece. Perhaps it could be another name , like the Duke or the Prince.

  7. I do have a set exactly like that, (minus the dragons). Had no idea it was an Austrian style.

  8. Man I have a varitent that you would like

  9. I made a chess variant with Dragon pieces, it can jump other pieces like a Knight but it attacks 2 spaces forward, backwards or to the side or all 4 diagonals 2 spaces, the two pieces are kind of like Knights, because they can jump over pieces, and they're also kind of like Bishops because one only moves on dark squares while the other only can move on light squares

  10. If a pawn captures into a pocket and reaches the end of it, what can it do later if it doesn't promote?

  11. Does anyone know where I can buy this game now?

  12. Complete bullshit. Dragon Chess is supposed to be played with 3 boards (sky, earth, and underground). Each board has pieces for its own level and rules about travelling to other boards.

  13. Interesting. Can you manufacture a set for Chess on an infinite plane (see Infinite chess in wikipedia)? I would totally buy THAT! 🙂
