Guess-Chess Panel Chess Concept by Prof.Ying Fangtian, Li Ke, Wang Nianou, Shao Shiyi, Yuan Sisi, Qiu Yiwu & Chen Qingyuan is a panel chess game that is efficient in its use of space along with material, and that could be fully recycled at the end of their life. Well guided by cradle-to-cradle design thinking, the designers involving Guess-Chess sought a game product that had not been just efficient inside terms of the material usage, but essentially waste-free. They will applied laser cutting to a metal sheet to create a good abstract game form inspired by the traditional rules of chess. Your chess pieces take on highly abstracted forms that fold upwards from the base plate. For you to distinguish between your chess pieces of the a pair of players, positive and also negative cut-out shapes tend to be employed.
Your players must guess the particular role of each chess piece (and the relevant game guidelines) by its shape. As an example, the king piece includes a terraced shape like the stepped pyramid; this indicates that the player can proceed one square inside any route. The pawn piece, having a mountain-like peak, indicates that the player can move forward to an unoccupied square immediately in front.
