QuadChess Board Game Review and Giveaway

I was recently able to go to The Chicago Toy and Game Fair and one of the companies I ran into was QuadChess. I love chess to begin with but chess with with four players is just AWESOME!!
In QuadChess you have 4 players 2 on each team but eac
h one has an army.“The Queen is strong and the pawn is weak, but when she turns her back, the lesser will overtake. But why turn her back? Because coming is yet another enemy, much more vile and powerful than any before.”
And such is QUADCHESS a challenge for all levels of chess players, complicated by the possibility of a fatal twist in the outcome of the game with every move.
QUADCHESS is played by four players, not all necessarily of the same level of experience in the traditional game of chess. QUADCHESS is the curious combination of two chess players defying the ambition of two other chess players. Two on two is the name of the game: devised in order to turn the basic game of chess into a team effort, with total reliance on one another from partner to partner. Watch one another’s back, for here comes the dual enemy gnashing its teeth.
All in all QuadChess is a top notch company and the game would be a perfect gift for the holidays for anyone whether they like chess or not.
To buy QuadChess at the low price of $29.99 on the Quadchess website.
Feel free to leave a comment on how you like their site, or if you bought one of the games.

I like that the company advises players to cover their teammate's pieces; it would be a great game for elementary school children as it promotes higher-level thinking and cooperation.

I learned that each player gets 2 checkmates in this game. I also think, from reading the instructions, that my son would absolutely LOVE this game.
