Re: Regium Chess — Most likely an elaborate SCAM!!

Not really because the Square Off team told me on three occasions that the pieces wouldn't knock into one another on their finished commercial product. This was a lie as my knight charges from its starting square bumping into the pawns. Also with their new Kickstarter campaign which I have pledged f...
