YAVOCH (pronounced ya-VOK) is the battle cry heard throughout the futuristic back story featured in the 65 page manual. (Secret: it’s also a humble acronym -- Yet Another Variation Of Chess). A modern art sculpture you can proudly display in any home, YAVOCH is a futuristic space battle instead of archaic medieval battle. There is only one way to play chess, but there are six different Yavoch games plus optional elements and two bonus games. Here’s how else YAVOCH differs from Chess:
- 3 dimensions on the board (50% more than flat board games)
- 125 positions (almost double what you get in chess)
- 24 pieces instead of 16
- More powerful pawns can destroy multiple enemy ships at once
- Particle Beam Cannon and optional teleportals and secret weapons!
