Musketeer Chess is a modern Chess variant invented by Dr Zied Haddad. In musketeer Chess, the basic rules of chess are followed. Musketeer Chess employs a Standard 8x8 chessboard with a Standard Staunton Chess set. But we add for both armies two of the new Chess Variants (There is choice of more than 10 pieces). Rules for Musketeer Chess can be downloaded at www.musketeerchess.com. The new chess pieces are designed to be Staunton-compatible, hence can easily be used as replacements or substitutes to customize classic Staunton pattern chess sets or create your own chess variant.

The purpose behind the development of Musketeer Chess was to make chess more fun and exciting and to avoid long, over-analyzed opening lines. Players can now rely on their own inventiveness and creativity.

The physical design of chess variants presented here are the creative work of Frank Camaratta, IM and founder of The House of Staunton.



Fortress and Unicorn Kit

The Fortress is another heavy piece with different capabilities from the already available chess variants. 

 

Fortress 

The top tower of the Fortress is pegged, so that the tops of the light and dark units can be interchanged (to handle with care).

The Unicorn is an enhanced version of the Classic Chess Knight. It moves like a Knight but has expanded jumping capabilities.
