Hunter's comment

Square off is a magical chessboard that makes chess fans' dreams come true. It is like wizard's chess from Harry Potter where pieces move by themselves. Creators of this product brought together Telerobotics and AI to build a machine that feels more human.

Square off is a smart chessboard that offers best of best worlds. Players can play online or against an AI. This chessboard makes it possible for players to play against their friends and family or anybody in the online community over the long distance using real wooden chessboard with carved pieces. Players can also play against AI that has 20 complexity levels. This also serves as a great learning tool.

Square off has an app available both in iOS and Android devices. The app provides integration with chess.com, game analyzer, training mode, chat, game live streaming, and game recording.

In March 2018, the company shipped out almost all crowdfunding orders. Currently, the product can be pre-booked. They have two models available. Kingdom Set for $329, and grand kingdom set for $399.

Are you a chess fan? or do know someone who is? This will make a great gift for any chess player.

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: POSTING GUIDELINE CHAMPION! Your post has officially been verified and is now eligible for a @steemhunt upvote. Happy hunting friend!

Good product for family menbers. Thank you for sharing. Good luck to you.

·

Thank you

this is an AWESOME find @geekgirl!!

·

Thank you

Looks great. However I still remember times when I sat together with a dear friend of mine over the chess board, thinking, drinking tea and having fun. No computer or AI ever can replace those encounters of friendship.

·

I agree those encounters are precious. You can still do that with this chess board. It just gives you more options. You can also still play with the same friend even when you are not in the same location. That is the whole point of this product. You are not playing on a computer. AI is when you don't have anybody available in real life or online at that moment, and for practicing.

·

True, perhaps I should go for it :-) By the way do you now my favorite board game Quirkle?

No, I haven't played it. Is that post in esperanto?

This game looks simple but we never get bored of it. It is a fine family game as well something for coming down and connecting for grown ups.
Yes it is Esperanto- still alive, even on steemit!

Amazing hunt @geekgirl, so sad I haven't been able to post my hunts for the past few hours.

  • perfect for cognitive reasoning.
  • Socializing with friends continents apart

·

Thank you. Why weren't you able to post?

·
·

I think it's my Google Chrome, messy every time I find something interesting to work on, It's been telling me fail to fetch my hunts posts.

I really think my sons will like it. Thank you.

I wonder if someone can learn to play chess with this. Can it teach...

·

It has 20 complexities of AI, so it is good to practice. However, I don't think it has tutorials.

·
·

Would be killer if the next version could teach beginners to become excellent chess players. Although that would mark the beginning of the end of the world lol.

This looks pretty awesome, almost out of a movie like you said. Although I do like the feel of playing chess manually, this might be a really cool alternative to play with people not sitting in front of you. Seems a little bit expensive but if the pieces are intricate and it works as designed than it would be worth it. Chess is a game that transcends age and is great for any occasion.

Pros:

  • It can connect players that is far away or near to play the game
  • Perfect gateway to chess lovers
  • If you are alone and want to play this game you can also challenge the AI itself
  • Well built design of the product

Cons:

  • None for this amazing hunt

This would be interesting to play but it can be weird at the same time

Pros :

  • what a great creation to be able to produce a magical chessboard which you can play online or against an IO
  • a learning tool for chess learners and exciting for chess enthusiasts
    -available on Android or iOS devices
    -perfect way of bonding with family, friends or chance to meet with anyone online

Cons :

No cons on this for this application

PROS-

  • IT'S NEW APPROACH TO THE WAY OF PLAYING CHESS SINCE IT INTEGRATES AI AND IT GIVES YOU THE REAL FEEL OF PLAYING CHESS COZ OF IT'S WOODY STRUCTURE
  • IT HAS AN APPLICATION WHICH CONNECT TO THE PHONE AND U CAN PLAY ANYONE FROM ANY PART OF THE WORLD AS LONG AS THEY STAY CONNECTED

CONS

  • IN TERMS OF THE PRICING IT'S WAY TO EXPENSIVE , MAYBE BECAUSE ITS IN ITS INITIAL STAGES . BUT IF PRICES ARE REDUCED THE IT WON'T BE BARRIER TO ITS ADOPTION .
  • ALSO I FOUND OUT THAT IF YOU LOSE YOURS CHESS PIECES ITS DIFFICULT TO REPLACE THEM .

I am a chess fan, not that good but can do okay against alright AI. This would be awesome to add to the collection!

Pros:

  • AI based physical chess game
  • You can play versus other real human far, far away from you online
  • Innovative idea to make chess attractive again for the public

Cons:

  • Nothing

Pros:
