This new Gaming type is based on the classic game of chess, which has recently enjoyed an increase in popularity due to the Netflix show, The Queen’s Gambit. Chess Sets come in both Walnut (physical) and Maple (virtual) forms, though both forms work similarly and are worth the same point values.
- Capture: 64 points
- CapOn: 30 points
- Deploy: 50 points
Chess Pieces (Scatter)
When you cap a Chess Set, up to three (1-3 random) new virtual “Chess Pieces” will be deployed nearby, similar to an Air Mystery/Feather or Night Vision Goggles/Infrared Munzee. They will only be visible for 2 hours to the player that capped the Chess Set.
The point values for capturing the Chess Pieces are as follows:
- Pawn: 10
- Knight: 30
- Bishop: 30
- Rook: 50
- Queen: 90
- King: 100
There are currently 9 badges you can earn by playing with our Chess Sets, split into 2 different badge lines. One badge line, which covers 6 of those badges, is based on the number of points you’ve earned with Chess Sets and Chess Pieces. You can see the first badge in this line below:
The remaining 3 badges are based on capturing a specific combination of Chess Pieces. Since these badges have special requirements we’d like you to discover as you play, we want to keep them a secret for now. Hopefully they shouldn’t be too tough for you to get!
