Beyond the Board is a fast paced roguelike based on the rules of chess. Your goal is to get your king through as many floors as possible before he gets captured. Every floor is random, with enemies, allies, walls and rooms scattered about. Each piece even has it's own unique name that you can upgrade as you go along!

Really cool game

BTW, there's a bug where a piece can get stuck on top of another. In my case, I had a knight and the king in the tile immediately under it. I clicked the king but wanted to switch to the knight, instead of switching, the king moved on top of the knight and both pieces became immovable.

Thanks for the bug report, I'll search for and fix it ASAP.

This game is super cool
