"It's rare that a game makes me laugh out loud. This really is a brilliant game, there's no other word for it."
Alex Rinehart (Cyberrats, Gratitude) on the original Fake Chess

Chess is a game of vast complexity and a 1500-year history.
Fake Chess is not.
Fake Chess players use a very basic set of rules and mechanics to live out their grandmaster fantasies by acting like serious chess players, engaging in what looks like an intense battle without the burdens of chess strategy, knowledge, or skill.
With the BOOK OF CHAMPIONS at the table, players can now embody specific characters with unique moves, strategies, and play styles.
Grind your way to riches as The City Park Hustler
Guide your protégé as The Benevolent Mentor
Pop some pills and stare at the ceiling as The Drug-Addled Queen
Giggle your way to victory as The Child Prodigy
Nurse your hangover as The Haggard Celeb
Chill your opponent's heat as The Icy Russian
Take your time as The Cerebral Snail
Dazzle and charm as The Magnanimous Hottie
Help (and annoy) new players as The Wizardly Tutor
Beep and bloop as The Chess Computer
Take a life as The Angel of Death
It's dramatic. It is silly.
It might be a real game, but it's definitely fake chess.

Fake Chess: Book of Champions requires a real chess set.
While the Book of Champions contains 33 new game boards that are fully compatible with the original Fake Chess, players do not need to own the original to play.
