This is a fresh twist on chess and checkers. It requires a different spectrum of thinking that challenges the brain. Six Making is a two-player strategy game for anyone capable of playing chess. Players challenge each other in building chess-like figures - except checkmating the opponent doesn't make you a winner; instead you win by building a king.

Each player takes alternates turns, either placing one of their own pieces on the board as a pawn or capturing any of the pieces on the board. Captured pieces result in higher stacks, which move like different chess pieces. Players can move small parts of stacks, but they retain the movement of their corresponding chess piece. The first player to create a stack of six or more pieces — with their own color on top — wins this challenging brain game.

An additional benefit for those with limited time: Six Making games are almost always shorter than chess.
