Honestly, needing an add-on item of this exact price to reach free shipping was the biggest selling point... but apparently the new plastic tiles are nice quality and I do like abstracts and have a soft spot for Chess.

Multiplayer chess with no board is an interesting concept, and the pieces here should allow me to also play Schachen or Chex (which has very similar rules).

---

Played with my daughter. At first she wanted to just play Chess instead, but trapping pieces soon caught her interest and (I think) she enjoyed the game well enough. I thought it was quite neat, but found that mating could be difficult without some experience - you have to think about things differently.

There are several chess variants that can be played with these tiles, and if I can find some checkered material it could also work as a nice portable chess set. Glad to own a copy, even though I'm not sure how often Tile Chess itself will be played.

Paid $5 not open. I have put it to use the very next week. Not often you find something like that for a home tile project.

These pieces could be used as bases for more standard chess pieces to mark hybrids.

Pieces are squares and squares are pieces

I believe this also gives me what I need to play Schachen and Chex

Chess with no board and no 3D pieces. Just tiles.

The 2014 version has plastic tiles (I believe the earlier version was made of punch-out cardboard). The trade-off is the newer version only has parts for 4 players, where the original version had parts for up to 6.

Considering I have difficulty finding one other human willing to play these things - the trade off was worth it. Plus the newer one is easier to find.

In Tile Chess, the board isn't used and the pieces are represented by tiles. The pieces move in the traditional fashion, including capturing, and the game — and the pieces for that matter — is held together by the restriction that each piece must always be connected to another piece, with that piece being connected to another, etc. Thanks to this requirement, the board and the grid that the pieces move on is formed by the pieces themselves (or lack thereof). You cannot make moves that would orphan pieces, which adds an interesting wrinkle to the game — and to make matters worse (in a good way), you might have to defend yourself against more than just one opponent...

Also, you can play Chex using a set of Tile Chess, and I'm sure other variants as well.
