3 Tips To Become A Chess with Dice Champion

3 Tips To Become A Chess with Dice Champion

Tip #1 Know the moves

Since we have the dice to dictate our next move, you must know when to move each piece at the appropriate time possible. For example, we strongly suggest that you utilize your pawns first since they are the first line of defense and offense, now knowing the moves means that you know that the pawn can be moved three squares forward as long as there is no obstacle or hindrance from the opposing side. Moves after that with the pawn would just be one square. Without prior knowledge of the moves you wouldn’t know how to start and neither would you know how to combine both combinations of the dice and pieces.

Luckily, without prior knowledge of the game, Chexi has the feature wherein they can forecast the moves of the pieces through indicators colored in either green or yellow showing you where you can move the piece and which piece is possible to utilize.

Tip #2 Knights and Bishops are Strong

If you have played Chess before, you would know that these pieces are one of the most vital pieces in the game. A knight can move past a pawn on your end making them eligible for the first move. Bishops on the other hand are easy to free once the pawn in front of them is released. Getting them towards the centerboard as discussed in the previous tips and tricks will further strengthen your line of offense rather than just relying on your first line of defense.

Tip #3 Look Back

If your opponent moved and it seems like nothing happened, or that it did not affect you in any way, think again. You both have the mindset to conquer the other side, therefore each move done will result in a reaction or plan of action. Look back on the opponent’s move so that you wouldn’t blindly move your pieces setting up an invasion.

One of the main mistakes we make as a player is that we believe that the opponent is not as vigilant as we are, remember every opponent aims to win just as much as you do, therefore do not move as if you are the only one playing. Consider thinking about both sides and take your action from there, after assessing the situation rather than just bluntly reacting to the pieces thrown at you.

There is a tactic wherein a player can lure you in with a piece that you would deem worth taking, for example, the queen, however, you did not notice that once your queen is moved it leaves an opening for your king, therefore letting you open up for defeat. Look back at the action and think about your next move.

Tip #4 Attack Once the Opportunity is Given

Some of the players tend to wait for the perfect opening, or the perfect opportunity to take advantage of. In the game of Chexi there is no perfect timing since the game is dictated by the dice, your moves are limited and are controlled by several probabilities. Therefore, to win in Chexi you would need to take advantage of what is given to you, if there is a moment wherein you can utilize a plan of action with the roll you have, do not wait for that perfect opening. You may have to wait for the probability of rolling the same pieces just to make a certain combination, and once that pops up you have already lost the game.

Opportunities are given at any given point in the game and how you take advantage of this is within your control, take the opportunity and plan, the moves you make now may result in a different outcome after the next roll. Attack now or regret your next move.

Tip #5 No One is Rushing You

The game isn’t bounded by time and neither does it require many seconds or minutes to finish. Take your time as you assess and think ahead of your opponents because they would be doing the same thing. Rushing may lead to actions that you would have done otherwise, this is because you wanted to end easily rather than patiently thinking of your next move.

Chexi isn’t a race and must not be treated as one since the game was designed not to put a limit or time constraint, you must utilize this to your advantage. Then again, if there are moments where you can pass because there is no combination in your favor then you may do so. Finding the balance between whether or not you should take action is also something to consider and will be beneficial towards the end. Overthinking can also cause you a loss, therefore you need to know when and how to respond to these situations given.

These tips aim to make you the next Chexi Champion, however, there may be instances wherein they wouldn’t deem applicable. Be the master at your phase and style and it will also benefit you in the future, these tips are meant to help you and assist you towards thinking in a different perspective, but it doesn’t mean it will or should control your moves. Remember that the player in the game is you and that you are more capable of doing things at your control, do not let external factors control your judgment. Have fun and we wish to crown you the next Chexi Champion soon!
