Asmodee announced a new board game, coming in a few months, inspired by the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit, The Queen of Chess.
I know what you are thinking: “but so it’s a chessboard?”, Well, it’s not that simple. Let’s go and see together.
The Queen of Chess: a new board game coming with Asmodee
One of the phenomena among the TV series launched last fall, The Queen of Chess has convinced many viewers and critics, making it one of the most viewed TV series on Netflix for several months and taking home two Golden Globes, the one for “Best Miniseries. “And” Best Actress in a Miniseries “for the protagonist Anya Taylor-Joy.
But the question arises spontaneously. So this is a board game from a series about a board game? It seems so, but certainly this one inception of board games will have something new to show us.
The title will in fact support a number of players from 2 to 4, in games lasting about 15 minutes. Each turn our “Gambit” will be able to move as if it were a different piece of the board. But the real key to the game should be the ability to read opponents’ moves in advance, a skill in which the Beth Harmon we are all passionate about excels at. This will lead us to claim the victory points, but also the opponent’s pieces!
In short, there is curiosity to see what they invented in the Asmodee house. To find out, we will have to wait until this fall. But beware of the woman’s gambit!
