All Queens Chess by Thinkfun is a Strategy game with only the most powerful chess piece! (MSRP: $12.99, Ages 8+)
Think of it as four-in-a-row chess. In this two-player game of All Queens you’ll have to plan your moves carefully as you outwit your opponent to get four Queens in a row. Just like in a game of chess, the all-powerful Queen can move any number of squares vertically, horizontally or diagonally. The only difference is that pieces can’t be captured. Stay alert and exercise logic as you navigate the board to get your Queens in a row.
I hadn’t played chess in years when this new game came along. My daughter now knows how to play chess so I thought for sure this would be a perfect game of strategy for us. What a great concept – everyone’s favorite piece is always the queen and we all protect our queen with everything we have! This is like an expanded Tic Tac Toe game and the pieces can move in any direction, just like in chess with the object of trying to get 4 in a row. Pieces cannot be captured but they also can’t move “through” or “over” other pieces. Makes for the perfect game of strategy for sure! My daughter likes video games – though she can clearly leave them aside if she has the right alternative. This is the perfect solution and she loves it!
