Mifactori Chessboard: Hacking Chess

Due to its modular design the Mifactori chessboard is „hackable“ – this means you can do a lot of stuff with it you can’t do with a usual chessboard. We collect some ideas for you here to start. If you have good ideas yourself you want to share with other players, please post them below in the comments or drop us an email ( or tweet with hashtag #Mifactori.


The Living Board

GENERAL RULE: When ever someone takes a chessmen from the other side, the person can take one „Square“ from the edges of the boards and reposition it – also to the edge. The new square needs to have a connection to the rest of the board.

VARIATION: You can take squares also from the center of the board – producing holes no chessmen can go to (or even cross).
