About Panic Chess

Is chess too relaxing for you? Your opponents too slow? That's perfect, because nobody would say that about Panic Chess.

Don't wait patiently for your opponent to have their turn. Move as many pieces as you want at once. The faster, the better.

With Panic Chess, there's no turns, no waiting and no time to think. It's all realtime. Move now or be obliterated by your opponent. Have a strategy if you want, you'll find it only slows you down.

The perfect move is useless if it comes a second too late.


  • Pieces have to recharge after moving. Don't plan on one piece doing everything.
