External Link: Colour Chess and Lure

An abstract strategy game that sees you not only controlling your own pieces, but also determining a lot of your opponent's piece movements through the control of colors. Colour Chess + Lure are played on the same board but with different pieces and goals. Or you can combine the two! Lure is a game of blocking, manipulation and capture that can be played with a different combination of pieces to change up the strategy. Colour Chess keeps the standard rules of chess but adds a second layer of strategy based on the board's colors. This removes a lot of the standard openings of chess and means you have to adapt your strategy to the board each time you play.
