Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Commander In Chief is a 2 to 4 player chess like abstract strategy board game for ages 6 and above. Commander In Chief is a combination of chess and checkers with an air, land and sea military theme. Certain air pieces (bombers and helicopters) can go over pieces, likewise certain sea pieces (submarines) can go under pieces. Additionally, certain pieces (bombers and tanks) can block. Beyond "basic strategy", there are "Object of the game" options, "Team game play" options and an array of "Advanced and new game play" options.

Product Description

Commander-In-Chief is a game that is played warring two opposing armed forces represented by specially designed playing pieces that are mounted on Platform Bases and placed on a game board comprised of sixty four alternating dark and light colored squares arranged in eight lines of eight squares each, i.e., the traditional checkerboard. The square board is set up for play orientated in a diamond shape so that a dark colored square is always positioned at the top and bottom of the board, as the single square in the First row closest to each player's seated position. Progressing toward the center of the board, the Second row per side contains two light colored squares; the Third row per side contains three dark colored squares, and so on and so forth.

The battlefields of the game are Through the Air, On Land and In the Sea (Air, Land and Sea). The playing pieces can only move within their designated battlefields. The fifteen squares per side that are occupied by the players' playing pieces at the start of the game (thirty total) represent the Land areas of the board. The thirty four squares that are unoccupied squares at the start of the game represent the Sea areas of the board. While each square uniquely represents either a Land area or a Sea area of the board, every square (Land or Sea) simultaneously represents an Air area of the board. Additionally, the game board is double sided so that the game can be played on either a dark and light colored or multicolored checkerboard.

The eight specially designed playing pieces (thirty total) are set up on the game board per side as follows: First row - Commander; Second row - Fighter, Fighter; Third row - Tank, Bomber, Tank; Fourth row - Submarine, Helicopter, Helicopter, Submarine; Fifth row - Amphibian, Amphibian, Destroyer, Amphibian, Amphibian. The two opposing armed forces are distinguishable by color, one dark and one light. The starting position of the Commander of the light colored armed

This game has it all, it's great! It has THREE different board games and pieces that can be used as individual toys! My three year old plays with the tankers, helicopters, and submarines and we, the adults, play the chess and commander in chief version of the game! CNC has to be the best new game...... we love it!

If you understand chess you will understand how to play this game. Not like those hex map war games with dozens and dozens of markers, cards, dice, etc. Pieces move on the board much like chess pieces and the game is not a big elaborate table-top setup. Worth every penny of the $33 if you like games like this!
