1D Chess is a fun, innovative chess variant played on a single row of 16 squares. Each player begins with one of each piece and must take their opponent’s king to win. The rules are intuitive for new and expert players alike, but offer a refreshing twist on the classic game of chess.
This game is available as a free PDF download you can Print and Play at home. It’s designed to work with normal sized chess pieces, but some cut-out chess pieces are included in the printout if you don’t have existing pieces handy.
This is a digital download of a PDF, not a physical copy of 1D Chess. If you have some paper and a printer at home, you can print up your own board like the ones in the photos. These rules are also available as a free download on http://onedimensionalchess.com/
