In Partnership with Musketeer Chess
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 a choice of more than ten pieces).
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 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 inventiveness and creativity.
The physical design of chess variants presented here is the creative work of Frank Camaratta, IM and founder of The House of Staunton.
