Design Aspects

To carry our theme, we have designed a unique magnetic minimalist polka dotted playing surface concept. The minimalist design also offers and expands the customisability options for the boards such that the polka-dot format can be overlaid on any maps or images.
See the costum editions section of the shop.

To minimize risk of breakages, all the helicopter model pieces had been designed such that they are magnetically paired with their rotor blades to avoid accidental breakage.

The playing pieces are coupled to the chess board magnetically where each magnet represents the centre point of a standard grid square and also to keep the pieces centred and orderly.

The chess board folds into a compact half of which the two halves are attached and hinged magnetically.

WarChess is a very interesting, fun and enjoyable way to play or learn chess. The pieces are very engaging and also make great toys.

WarChess is well designed. All WarChess pieces are uniquely 3d-printed. This production methods give the playing pieces a unique rustic and detailed look and finish, where the resolution of the 3d-printer creates a rivet-like look finish on the playing pieces.

With modern and minimalist design aspects, WarChess will fit and add a subtle dynamism to any style of space. The WarChess board set has been designed t be wall mountable.
