The first edition of Knightmare Chess was one of
the best five games of 1996, in my opinion, and the second edition
was one of the five best games of 1997. The release of Set
Two should be in the top five of 1998.
This set includes 78 new cards plus two blanks. Since the backs
are identical to both editions of the first set of Knightmare
Chess, you can mix them together to make an even more
chaoticly fun game than before. Or you can use this deck as a
stand-alone game - you don't need Set One to play
with this set.
As with the Second Edition of Set One, the text is
very readable, even for my middle-aged eyes. Hooray!
I haven't yet analyzed it as a stand-alone game - it has fewer
"get-out-of-trouble" cards than Set One, but that
shouldn't be a problem, since it affects both sides equally. It
has (I think, but could be wrong) a higher percentage of more
powerful cards than Set One. It would be very
interesting to play a "Set One vs Set Two" game - I'll try it
In the meantime, I recommend this expansion set highly - it's sure
