About King of Crowns Chess

A unique score system involving completing card decks now adds more diversity to the game and a new ranking system based upon your total score also makes the game more interesting.

There is a leaderboard and chat for each club and multiple games can be played at any given time.

What makes King of Crowns Chess Different?

1. King of Crown Chess has a unique score system and card collecting system which adds diversity to the game. All players gain in game cards after completing a game. If you win, you earn more cards and chances at rares. When you complete a deck in the game, you can trade them in for card points which increases your total score. When you join a tournament club and play other players in a tournament club, you earn even more cards and chances at more rares. You also earn score points based upon how many games you've completed, games you've won and your over all elo.

2. King of Crowns Chess can be played through any web browser, PC, phone, tablet or Smart TV. A one time payment is required for a lifetime access. NO monthly fees or hidden costs. No banner advertisements, bots or pay to win schemes, just chess.

3. All real players, no bots or computer AI. Our ranking system is based upon our exclusive steam members and you'll find active players from around the world you can compete with.

4. Multiple games can be played at any given time making the game pace for casual or hardcore players. You can play 10-20 games at once or just one good game at a time, the choice is yours. You can set your play style to Casual, 1 Day or BLITZ and invite players based upon their selected play style.

5. Because our game is browser based, you don't have to worry about losing your game to a sudden application crash.

Multiplayer and Multiple Games:

Because you can have multiple games playing at once, game matches can be played at your leisure. Each player has 3 days to complete a move before the game is considered abandoned and the opponent can declare that game a win. This is to keep all games fair and active. You can select your play style for BLITZ or 1 Day style games and invite players of your preferred play style. Our match making system is also simple. You can search for players using our Match Lobby, by joining a club or by looking in our global ranking list.
