This is a fully playable two-player Chess game made in vanilla Minecraft 1.8 using command blocks for logic and armor stands for the chess pieces.

To play, set up on a server (creative mode) or simply load into your minecraft client and open to LAN. Pick up a banner by flying or walking over it - the game begins when there is a player for both sides.

Right-click a piece to select it, right click a possible move to move the piece. Green square indicates valid (empty) move, red square indicates a move that takes out one of the opponent's pieces. Only valid moves are allowed, but check is not detected (yet), which means that some moves can be done that are not valid in that situation.

Some stuff I'd like to improve at some point:

  • Check!
  • Check mate!
  • Prevent armor stands from being destroyed by punching?
  • Undo?

Version 1.1 update:
  • Bug fixes for game sometimes hanging when trying to move pieces.
  • The board and starting layout are now correct!
  • Players are now in spectator mode when it's not their turn, so they can't interfere.
  • Fixed a bug that made EnPassant rules trigger for other pieces than pawns.
  • Other minor bug fixes.
Update: Mark3146 made a Star Wars skin for this! Check it out!

Very cool!
That's a really nice way to create the game as-well.

I don't know how it would work but we could collaborate one day to come up with some good idea's maybe.
That's my current probject un-realeased so far.

I like working on projects that do cool things that I find incredible.
What you see there is a random world generator concept which I plan on making into a giant game.
So yeah, that's me.




As for this, I probably wouldn't have the patience for it or the originality, so awesome work on it, looking forward to your future submissions!

That's cool, I hope you manage to complete it. I have a bunch of other small ideas on my youtube channel as well, but nothing major yet. I do have a few bigger ideas that I've started working on though. We'll see what I manage to finish first.

Nicely made.
Somewhere a shame the commandblocks + armorstands can make this so tiny. Damm, my own chess without those features and such small size becomes way more dusty of the old pre-commandblock era.
