Treasure Chess of Armenia

Board Game
(Number: GCH0052)

Language(s): English

A family board game that brings the culture and spirit of Armenia to children and adults. This game will enable families to spend quality time together learning and discovering more about the Armenian homeland. Proceeds will be donated to non-profit Armenian organizations. Created and developed by two educators, Hrant and Arlene Jilozian.

Ages 6 and up.

The game can be played two ways:
1. Using Chess Moves (This is not a chess game!)
2. Regular Counting Moves.

The game box contains:
1 game board 20" X 20" Quad fold.
2 Pawns
1 Coin
1 Spinner 10" X 10"
12 Destination Cards ( Tsitsernagapert, Madenataran, Sardarabad,...) Value 3 points
26 Bonus Cards ( Haig Nahabed, Gomidas Vartabed, Sayat Nova, Sasountsi Tavit, ...) 2 points and 1 point for treasure chest cards.
4 Moves Cards ( 2 for Chess moves, 2 for Regular moves)
1 Information Sheet

Note: On each of the Destination cards and bonus cards there is information about the monument or the person.

How to play:
1. The Destination Cards and the Bonus cards are put face down in two separate piles.
2. The 1st player picks a bonus card, keeps it, and put his/her pawn on that location.
3. The second player does the same.
4. Turn the top destination card over, put it face up on the destination card stack, and put the coin on that location.
5. By spinning the spinner, both players compete to get to that destination.
6. Whoever reaches the destination first, takes the destination card and puts it on his/her pile.
7. Next destination card is turned over and the game continues like steps 5 and 6.
8. When all destination cards are taken, the player with the most points wins.

On the spinner, there are 12 outcomes; 6 moves and 6 actions, which makes the game more interesting. For example, if a player spins "Take opponent's card", he/she will take the top card from the opponent's stack. Another action is "change places" and this becomes especially interesting if the opponent is near the destination and has to move away from it!
