ThinkFun All Queens Chess Review

If you've been around here before you know we love ThinkFun games here. Check out my reviews on two of their games here and here. 

They have done it again! A new game recently came out called All Queens Chess. 

This is similar to a connect four or four in a row type of game. The best part? You use the most powerful piece of the chess set. The Queen. 

The point of this game is to get all of your chess Queen pieces in a row either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The Queen can move as it does in the game of Chess. You just need to get them in to the rows with four in line. 

It is harder than you might think. As you're playing you're having to stay on top of your game and on top of what your opponent is doing. They can sneak up and beat you before you realize it. (Just like my son did)

 You must follow the etiquette where as your queen can not jump over another piece and the queen can not be captured. 

The more you play the more involved it gets as you try to outwit your opponent. The game is set for ages 8 and up and is for 2 players. 

It comes with :
  • 6 black queens 
  • 6 red queens
  • A gameboard
  • Instructions
You can find this new ThinkFun game on Amazon for around $12.00. This is another winner in our home from the ThinkFun company. They have been creating games for strategy and brain sharpening for many years.

My son and enjoyed trying to outdo each other. He did sneak up and beat me several times as I got distracted. Note to self... Don't get distracted playing a youngster at a board game. We both enjoyed playing the game.

This is another one to add to your list of games for family game night. Get the board set up and see who can become the All Queens Chess champion!!
