A CARD-BASED CHESS VARIANT
Samurai Chess is a card-based chess variant for two players. Each player starts with a deck of seven cards, which represents their pieces. To move a piece, players must give the related card to their opponent. If they don’t have the card, they can’t move the piece.
It is a deeply strategic variant. Players can foil their opponent’s plans, and set traps for their opponent, based on their own pieces that they choose to, or choose not to move.
