Rogue Chess is a new way to play the classic game. They’re looking for funding over on Kickstarter.

From the campaign:

What is Rogue Chess? In five words: Advanced Strategy Cards for Chess. In more than five words…

Rogue Chess uses cards to modify the move and capture of chess pieces. Each card is specific to a certain chess piece and when played will modify that piece’s move, capture, or add a special effect. Every round a player may use a card or move as normal. Once the card is played, the player discards it and draws a new one.
