THE EVOLUTION OF CHESS WITH DICE
BY ROSS CORDOVIZ
THIS BOOK IS DEDICATED TO THE PEOPLE OF MIND.
Chapter 1: Let’s Ignite Our Cognitive Skills
Chapter 2: Innovating Chess “Chess Roll”
Chapter 3: Patience Is The Key To Success
Chapter 4: Physical and Mental Strength
Chapter 5: Chess Roll is For You and Me
If you think Chess is only for people of a high caliber – such as geniuses, elites,
philanthropists, and alike – then you need to keep reading. Chess is a game for anyone,
the rules are simple yet the strategy makes it complex. Every sport that you will find
interesting would seem difficult at the start, that’s why we practice day in and day out to
become better at it. A child prodigy had to learn the basics before playing or becoming
great in their craft.
During the previous year, chess has seen a resurgence in popularity. Thanks in part to
the hit Netflix series “The Queen’s Gambit” and its riveting lead Beth Harmon, the old-as-time board game has stepped up as the new hobby for millions of people around the world despite the lockdowns and restrictions of the coronavirus pandemic.1 However, despite the dashing moves and the drama away from the chess board, there are still people reluctant to try this fun and challenging game.
Now, thinking about how difficult Chess is, and thinking that you aren’t capable of winning
the game since you are a beginner, what if I told you that there is an innovative version
of Chess that levels the playing field for both amateurs and professionals?
That my friend is Chess Roll, a modern twist to the game we all know and love. So what makes it different from Chess? We added chance and probabilities in the mix, limiting possible maneuvers that seasoned players have learned to utilize. On
the other hand, it even gives beginners a fighting chance to roll the dice, choosing from
the dice, and which piece to move that can put the opponent in Check.
I know what you are thinking, we just levelled the playing field, and you are right! We did.
Think of it, a game that is built on skill and chance. Life just got better. If you ever wanted
to challenge an opponent in battle, Chess Roll will fulfill that for you.
Wait, it gets even better. We have two great versions, one has the virtual chess board
and dice that you can play against anyone in the world, or out of this world, whatever
floats your boat. Lol. The second version is just the virtual dice itself, giving you and your opponent a chance to play on a physical board in the same room or the social distancing way.
With everything that has been happening around us, we need a game that can challenge and strengthen our mental state. Chess Roll brings all of that and more; it’s learning and having fun at the same time. Our body needs to be healthy through exercise and a well balanced diet, why not exercise our brains as well to keep it healthy and to boost its functionality.
Take that step towards mental toughness and let’s Chess Roll today!
IGNITING OUR COGNITIVE SKILLS
IGNITING OUR COGNITIVE SKILLS
People think that as long as they are reading books, or at least reading articles on social media platforms, is that their brain is already getting the necessary exercise and nutrients that it needs. To be honest, reading is great, especially if it’s something that sparks your interest and it’s filled with words that can boost your vocabulary. However, have you wondered why is it that when you are reading a book that has the same genre over and over again, it becomes easier to forecast the ending and possible climactic twist? Well, that’s because you are already used to the idea and your brain doesn’t need to digest as much.
Learning something new would give your brain a boost that you never thought or knew you needed. The majority of people nowadays suffer memory loss and illnesses as they age, and that’s because their brain doesn’t get enough exercise or that they aren’t using their cognitive skills2. Our brains suffer when it becomes stagnant, mind-numbing information can truly put a toll on our reasoning and thinking skills.
With Chess Roll, we aren’t just going to boost your brain functionality, we aim to ignite other cognitive skills that have been at ease throughout the days you have been at ease. Let’s challenge ourselves and keep our mind healthy. I have said this time and time again, but a well-balanced diet is not enough, you have to keep the motor running both physically and mentally.
Apart from the classy representation of Chess in movies and TV shows – in a serene, yet intense duel between two minds – Chess has been almost anywhere. It is played in parks, along the streets, and sometimes in establishments like hotels, restaurants, and airports just to pass the time. With Chess Roll, we take that mobility even farther, you only need your phone and you’re all set to reap these rewards and more!
Here are some benefits and advantages that Chess Roll plans to ignite as you play, learn, and enjoy the game we created.
Chess Roll Can Develop Your Memory
A game of Chess has always incorporated memory enhancement throughout the gameplay. From remembering what piece was moved on either side of the board, to strategies and maneuvers that can give you the edge, Chess improves memory in the same way memory improves Chess skills.
In fact, several published studies
have examined the relationship between Chess and memory: from examining the role of
memory for chess positions and gameplay skills3, to regular exposure to the game as a
form of defense against dementia in later stages of life4. In the latter, a previous study
involving 500 participants over five years were monitored, finding that those who played
board games like chess were 35 percent less likely to develop dementia compared to
those who played less, or none at all.
Chess Roll utilizes the same functionalities and amps it up with the addition of dice. As
mentioned, the roll of the dice will dictate your next move and as you try and recall the
previous rolls made. You also try to think leaps and steps forward, forecasting your
opponents’ next move. Chance has always been on either side of the table, no one has
direct control therefore, you think more of what’s about to happen rather than what you
are supposed to do. The addition of dice as elements of chance shakes up the gameplay
experience, leveling the field for both experts and beginners.
Chess Roll Enhances Logical Reasoning
You may be thinking, how can a game like Chess Roll boost logical reasoning? Isn’t that
accomplished through studying and reading a variety of books and prestigious articles?
The game was created in accordance to the rules and functionality of Chess, with the
inclusion of dice, you must predict or forecast the next move to ensure that you are still in
favor to win the game.
Logical reasoning requires you to predict and create your algorithms that favor your
cause. Without the use of such concepts, you would be blindly making moves that would
lead to your loss. The brain is capable of utilizing this function as long as it is given the
challenge to do so. We use logical reasoning in everyday life as we try to predict and
generate ideas of what to do next, the same functionality will be used in the game and
will be enhanced if practiced in a daily set up.
While traditional Chess allows its players to strategize and find logical possibilities several
steps ahead, Chess Roll adds spice to your playing experience. Could you still set up the
same openings without the certainty that you can move the same pieces next round?
Chess Roll trains its players to maximize all pieces on the board, and prepare themselves
for any contingency that may arise.
Extending the role of logical reasoning into the real world, I can’t stress enough how the
ability to deduce and create reasonable projections play into the life of a professional. In
the same way doctors have to make accurate diagnoses based on the reported
symptoms, or how engineers make plans based on environmental factors and client
requests, playing chess teaches the value of how things lead to another and trains its
players to identify the most logical approach towards victory.
Chess Roll Helps With Creativity
First, let me get it out there: Chess is not just a complex, procedural game. Although this
is largely recreational, do keep in mind that this was originally meant to be a simulation
of war and strategies. Later on, it was used to teach war strategy and was even called
the “King’s Game” in Medieval Europe.
Simply put, playing Chess helps develop creativity in addition to logic. There will be
countless instances where you’ll be put in a rather “sticky” situation which, sometimes,
will require you to think for an out-of-the-box solution. Whether it be making a sacrifice,
or an unexpected move, Chess has virtually countless solutions owing to the large
number of combinations for the pieces, each with its distinct movement pattern.
In fact, a large body of studies have correlated regularly playing chess with both critical
and creative thinking. Defining “creativity” as the ability to create a work considered both
“novel” and “appropriate,” a 2017 study assessed chess training on the creativity of Indian
School Children.5 A pre-test and post-test approach was done in about 100 students,
finding that systematic chess intervention in school children does have benefits in
Another, easier outlet for creativity, is in humor. And believe me, the world of Chess has
its own share of crazy funny moments from the chess masters themselves – pictures of
silence and concentration and rigidity. A famous anecdote goes that once, Alexander
Alekhine met his rival Efim Bogoljubov, who promptly started talking trash about him.
Alekhine responded with the now-famous joke:
“I have dreamt that I have died and arrived at the gates of heaven. Saint Peter approached
me and asked me what have I done during my days on Earth,” Alekhine began. He
continued with his reply, that he was a chess master and the Champion of the World.
Saint Peter replied: “Chess master? I am sorry, we don’t accept chess masters in
Alekhine, pretending to be confused, inquired: “What do you mean. Here, there is
Bogoljubow lying on this cloud.”
Saint Peter finally understood and said, “Bogoljubow? Oh, he is not a chess master. He
only thinks he is one.” and sent the entire room into laughter.
Chess Roll Enhances Logical Reasoning
There are two types of perception in line with cognitive skills, and Chess Roll can surely improve them through gameplay: that’s visual and auditory. Visually, you can manipulate the pieces and possible combinations needed through the roll of the dice. You also have to take quick mental notes and the limited moves that you have to take based on the visual data (i.e., the placement of pieces on the table.)
In fact, a 2017 study revealed that Chess players are capable of quick eye movements and equally rapid recognition of complex visual patterns. This allows them to evaluate and find the best move for accomplishing their plans on the board.6
Focusing on different aspects visually in one sitting can improve and boost this skill. On the other hand, Auditory refers to the skill of learning through what is processed by ear. A game of Chess is usually played in a quiet setting. Chess Roll, on the other hand, plays music that is filled with suspense, challenging our players to overcome disturbance while still being able to focus on the game.
Of course, you can mute the audio anytime. However, what’s wrong with a little challenge if it can ignite your skills, right?
Chess Roll Will Tweak Your Attention To Detail
With Chess, you are already focusing on the next move with a strategy in mind, there are
even specific moves that can ensure that you win in four, as long as the opposing player
takes the wrong pieces and puts it in the wrong place, your attention to the specific move
done on both ends have already boosted your cognitive aspect.
However, since Chess Roll involves the roll of dice, you can still try to forecast the next
move, but you have to consider that if the dice isn’t in your favor you must have a backup.
This is a vital aspect in improving mental toughness, thinking leaps and bounds ahead of
yourself whilst also considering what your opponent may do.
While centuries of collective experience has allowed Chess to create established
openings and strategies, with all its variations, most of them depend on a particular
sequence of actions. With Chess Roll, these strategies will require an additional factor:
luck. Will the dice agree with your plans? While it hinders your plans, remember that it
does the same to your opponent. Make sure to be aware of what opportunities are
available to you once the dice rolls disagree with the other side of the board.
EVOLUTION OF CHESS WITH
EVOLUTION OF CHESS WITH Chess Roll
Do keep in mind that we are not changing the game, neither are we trying to rid off a sport that has been with us for ages. We are simply innovating the game we know and love and making it available to everyone across the world leveling the playing field for both amateurs and professionals. We simply want to challenge seasoned players of the game to further better their skills while inviting beginners to learn something new without giving anyone a fair advantage.
The game started as an “idea” like every great application and or game design created: the creator wanted to try something different and innovative that can appeal to the masses. Chess Roll was one of those ideas and I wanted to help a friend bring it to life. A well-esteemed and established player in poker, he wanted to take a game he loves playing and add a twist that he thinks would attract players across the globe, hence the creation of Chess with Dice “Chess Roll”.
This was 10 years in the making.
When we think about innovation, I know that the first thing that comes to mind is “replace.” We aren’t here to replace the game, we simply want to add a challenge and level the playing field. This is because no one has a clear advantage, even with the knowledge of chess combinations at your arsenal, you wouldn’t get to move a specific piece at whim once the turn is given to you. Probabilities and chance come into play and the thrill of not knowing what comes next.
Thinking about it, I know seasoned players will believe that they still have the edge against beginners. However, can they still ensure that the next roll will be in their favor? I beg to differ. With a platform that can be accessed across the globe through technological advancements, we can surely attract players of different calibers and have them collaborate and play against each other.
Games that have been developed today are not as mentally challenging as you would expect them to be. Aside from the factors of high resolution and battle effect, your mind isn’t as focused as it would be in comparison to a game of Chess Roll. There are a lot of studies that showcase the benefits of Chess for both children and adults. Now, with a game that has proven to be effective for mental toughness, why not try a game that has been innovated to further challenge your cognitive and mental skills. And the best part? It’s fun and you will want to play it again and again.
The developers and I believe that this game will take the online industry by the storm because there is no requirement to fill in, the game is free to play for everyone, and the best part is it isn’t bounded by time, therefore, there is no pressure and can be played at any time of the day.
Our goal is to provide everyone with an avenue to test and challenge themselves in a mental aspect, ensuring that they don’t fall stagnant throughout any given situation. Keep that motor running tuned up and running smoothly.
PATIENCE IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS
PATIENCE IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS
The majority of people nowadays have already gotten everything they needed on a silver platter. They are being raised with getting what they ask for without the need to wait for it. Patience is a skill that is harnessed and learned, you aren’t born onset as a patient human being.
For kids raised in the Information Age, almost everything is available with the press of a button. Need to know or learn something? The Internet is faster than ever. Need to go something or somewhere? The right app will book you up. While this has empowered them more than their predecessors, it has led the older generations to see them as being less capable of handling delays and more importantly, disappointment – although Science might beg to differ.89
With Chess Roll, I want you guys to know that patience is vital and that it can be learned and should mold your character. As a parent myself, I always wanted my kids to showcase their patience because this is a reflection of what they are taught at home and is utilized throughout their daily lives.
Imagine your children being impatient because they know that if they run their tantrums, you would eventually give in just so that they would stop. Fortunately, the game doesn’t work that way: you can complain, get frustrated, go crazy, but the game won’t adapt and feed you the win. You’ll have to learn how to work for it.
In sports, winners are the ones who
are willing to go through the worst losses and still pick themselves back up and try to
win the next round.
We aim to ignite the fighting spirit in your children and with you as well. If you want to further benefit from the game because you want to become a better individual, then you may. Patience is, in general, a context and skill that everyone should practice. So, why not learn the game from scratch, even without prior knowledge to Chess? The in-game feature of showing the available pieces, as well as each of their possible moves after the dice roll assists players to get a clearer view of their actions. Giving them a chance to think about their next move, the game isn’t bound by time, so you may take your time thinking of your next move. Being the opponent, you must be patient enough to wait your turn using the time given to assess the situation and act accordingly.
The game experience from Chess Roll, as with its traditional counterpart, instills the value of patience in its players. With randomly generated dice rolls, no player can tell what the next rolls would allow? Even with a strategy in place, players will have no choice but to make another move – or pass their turn altogether – depending on what the dice shows. Like all battles in life, Chess Roll simulates the grueling experience of inching closer to a goal, turn-by-turn, and responding to the opponent’s moves.
Also, the game teaches the value of each piece in the board. Players, both new and seasoned to the game, will agree that the Queen is the most powerful among them. But what happens when you lose it early in the game? Perhaps due to a misstep, an unfortunate roll of the dice, or simply in the face of a superior opponent? While conceding defeat – or its less graceful version: “rage quitting,” as kids today call it – is a common option, the real challenge is in what happens next. How you make do with what’s left and plan measures afterward is a prerequisite to winning a game of Chess, and hopefully, the game of life.
With patience, an individual is more responsive to a given situation rather than simply being reactive. Another issue we face in everyday life is that we react to every situation thrown at us without thinking before responding with a resolution. A reactive approach is coupled with patience; you would check all possible options first, check the pros and cons, and generate the best resolution before providing a valid response. That’s something you need to ensure that you are coursing in the right direction.
As a player, you must know how to react and when to respond, all vital in a game of Chess Roll, so why not test your skill and put your wit to the test, you have nothing to lose, yet everything to gain. Let’s put our patience to the test and together, so we can all grow towards success.
PHYSICAL AND MENTAL STRENGTH
PHYSICAL AND MENTAL STRENGTH
With everything happening around us, let’s be honest, our physical and mental health have taken a back-seat. With the global coronavirus pandemic throwing a wrench to most of our plans – travel, career, even in our relationships – it’s not that hard to see the mental and emotional toll it has taken on us, with some being hit harder than others.
On the plus side, some of us aren’t too worried about our mental state since we believe that we are still young, or that our children are also too young to realize what’s going on or that it may minimally affect them. That’s where it gets tricky though: our mind at rest will get used to the idea that it barely needs to get the motor running, therefore, ending with a possible cause/trigger for memory loss and other mental illnesses.
I am not telling you this to scare you; do realize that not just our mind is at risk today. If your body doesn’t get the necessary movement it needs daily, you can risk yourself having weight issues and health risks. We need to find the balance in both body and mind.10 If you plan on exercising your body through weight lifting, with a little cardio on the side, also exercise your mental health through a game that will surely benefit and aid in your cause.
Chess Roll will not only challenge you mentally with the level of difficulty in the design or the competitive atmosphere. With this game, you would encounter people across the world, learn a variety of tactics as well as understanding the advantages of each, check out probabilities, and forecast and assess given situations to ensure that you are making the right decision – all these experiences are set to give your mind the exercise it needs.
Let’s not ignore the signs that we are no longer mentally and physically healthy. Both aspects can be worked on in the comfort of your own home, all you need to do is discipline yourself to the extent that you want to take action. The first step is to stop making excuses. I know, I am not perfect. I had my fair share of excuses just to get out of doing certain things and ended up not doing it. I need you to take that step and tell yourself that you would start, and it would be best to start today.
To succeed in life, finding the balance in both mental and physical wellness will surely benefit you in ways you would have never imagined. Being physically fit doesn’t just entail that your body is at its best, but that your health will also reflect the same. You aren’t as tired, you can keep up with your friends and family at ease, and it’s like you haven’t aged a day in your life. Exercising your mental fitness, on the other hand, keeps your mind in tip-top shape. This will allow you to easily perceive and manipulate cognitive skills and the idea of maximizing both hemispheres of your brain – finding both a logical and a creative solution to everyday challenges.
Remember all the New Year’s Resolutions that have yet to materialize up until this day. Right after the fireworks, we tell ourselves that we’ll take action tomorrow, the next week, the next month, until the year has ended and it’s time to start the cycle all over again. Escape this vicious pattern. If you plan on doing tomorrow, scratch that. That won’t happen. If you can, start today! Start NOW!
Chess Roll IS FOR YOU AND ME.
Chess Roll IS FOR YOU AND ME
It may sound repetitive, however, I can’t tell you this enough, Chess Roll is for everyone. With its virtual platform, this upgraded Chess variant is accessible on desktops and laptop. And now, it’s available on mobile devices, letting you enjoy the thrill of dice- restricted chess fights anytime, anywhere. Whether you’re waiting for an appointment at an office or the hospital, checking on your next flight, or maybe while preparing for your arrival or departure at a hotel lobby, it doesn’t matter – play against the game’s built-in AI or find an opponent from another part of the globe. Roll the dice, train those mental faculties, and have fun!
With our new game, we will always welcome new players – everyone is new to Chess Roll once they enter through our gates. Not everyone makes a strong marching entrance to the battlefield like Beth Harmon did on the Kentucky State Championship, and it’s okay. While some players skyrocket through the ranks, others take the slow and steady path to mastery – and both trajectories work, especially if you’re having fun.
Also, you’ll never know who you’d meet within the matchmaking lobby. Chess grandmasters, apart from their incredible skills on the game, are mostly similar to ordinary persons. You might meet someone during an airplane flight, or during a chance encounter at a hotel lobby and might not even know it. In a 2015 interview with Chessbase, Indian grandmaster Vishy Anand shared a fascinating chat during a train journey back in 1991.11 The other passenger asked Vishy where he was working, to which the grandmaster replied that he plays chess. This passenger pushed on, “that is ok, but what do you do?” Vishy reiterated that he plays chess, making the other passenger irritated and asked him: “Do you think you are Viswanathan Anand to play chess?”
Without even knowing that he was, indeed, talking to the one and only Viswanathan Anand.
Now you’re wondering if someone who has never heard of and or tried Chess in their entire lives would possibly learn and get better at the game on set. No one knows a new game and how to play it the moment they open or run the app. Everyone will have to learn the tactics, the strategy, and the overall gameplay.
In the game, we teach you the game in 30 seconds! Yes, that’s right: 30 seconds! A video pops up when you are about to play the game for the first time. Our website will also give you the necessary articles, studies, and even tips and tricks on how to master the game – always available whenever you find the time to learn it. No one is forcing you to love the game we created. However, we do invite you to try and check it out for yourself. The overall design was made to attract players of all ages to participate and have fun.
We even offer videos and streaming of games from the creators themselves to help you have a better grasp on the game and ultimately enjoy it – like the way we intended it to.
These additional content materials are interactive, to let you take the reins and have a unique perspective inside the world of Chess Roll.
Gamers from across the globe also streamed the game through different platforms as they were enticed on how the idea was conceptualized and designed. If these gamers, from different places and backgrounds, found the fun that’s within this revamped board game, so can you!
As Chess Roll aims to innovate the game, we do want to challenge seasoned players to
familiarize themselves with the altered gameplay. Hopefully in the future, we can hold
competitions that attract chess players – both enthusiasts and professionals – in a
memorable event. Who knows: you just might be the first champion of Chess Roll! In this
all new experience from the old board game, nothing is impossible for people who are
driven to be the best.
This is also a value that we would want to build in our players as we launch the game: we want you to find that drive and perseverance to succeed. Thousands of people around the world are like you right now: new to the game’s features and environment. But you will have to boost and improve your mental toughness and cognitive skills. Hey, nobody said that learning and having fun can’t share the same table, right? And as every great champion once started as a clueless beginner, maybe it’s time to bring out that inner grandmaster in you today!
With this, we also invite kids to play the game as well since we know that mental sports are highly beneficial at a young age.12 Now, if we can get the youth to age with Chess Roll, we can ensure that we are molding individuals that have gathered the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed. We have to address the stigma and the gatekeeping that Chess isn’t for everyone. The truth is that, like Beth Harmon challenging the men’s world of professional Chess in “The Queen’s Gambit,” the eight by eight board is more than large enough to accommodate everyone.
Let us do away with the negative and backwards ideas of the game being limited for guys, for adults, or for nerds. Pick up those pieces and start strategizing!
My son and I used to play chess, just to be able to sit and talk. We used our minds to think about the next move, and also laughed about losing pieces – especially after a silly mistake or a step without much thought. Actually, sometimes he would get upset if he lost a piece and would want to give up. I didn’t let him. I always challenged him to keep going. Fast forward to 2020, my son is now 22, he has his own life and we are thousands of miles apart. When we talk on FaceTime and play the game together, it gives us time to catch up and do something together at the same time. I am hoping to share the same bonding experience I have with my son. Especially in a world after the coronavirus pandemic, families have been kept apart by lockdowns and travel restrictions – and perhaps Chess Roll could open an unexpected avenue for keeping families closer together, regardless of the oceans between them. Start playing, teach your folks and your siblings and share a much-needed laugh when the Chess match starts taking an unexpected turn – thanks to the fate dictated by the three dice.
All of you are smart in your own way, so playing a game that can help you boost and improve skills is beneficial. So why not start at a young age, or even start today. There is no age cap for learning – it’s by choice – and all you need is the hunger and thirst to gain new knowledge.
So after everything I shared with you, I know that I can’t easily change your mind. But still, everything can be done through trying. That’s why I encourage you to try. With one click you can already check if this would be the game for you, if this game would surely help you boost your cognitive skills and improve your mental toughness. Give your mind the exercise it needs and trust me, you would have a different perspective in how you act and respond in life.
With Chess Roll, we believe that our mind is a powerful tool that needs to be given the necessary activities to ensure that it doesn’t grow weary. Designing a game that helps advance this cause has been a dream come true – starting with one single idea that sparked it all. We want to make sure that our players and people in general get the same benefits they would get with a game of Chess the Chess Roll way.
Besides the learning tool that Chess was made to be, the overall design of Chess Roll
attempts to offer a holistic approach – those that work on and off the board. You aren’t
limited to what the game has to offer. If you learn more from the experience and apply
this in your lives, it shows that the game was beneficial and we have met the vision that
Chess Roll aims to achieve: That everyone is able to maintain the balance of physical
and mental health in a riveting fusion of learning and having fun.
We want you to think about life, think about Chess Roll
I am inviting you to a challenge you never saw coming; learn and get your mind the
exercise it needs. Let’s work towards greatness today! Chess Roll
