Anti-chess game introduced

Chandigarh, July 2
If you want to win you have to lose. This is the essence of a scheme jointly introduced by Ethos and Swatch to give a new experience to youth. They introduced an anti-chess game here today.

The Head, Merchandising, and Coordinator Chandigarh operations, Ethos, Mr Rakesh Mohunta, explained that this traditional game had been given a new twist. The game is of 10 minutes and is played on computer. Unlike the regular chess game, it is played in the reverse order. To win you have to lose all the “members” to the opposite team. The winner will get a Swatch watch free of cost. Even if you have eliminated your opponent teams then also you can get discounts and incentives which will be inversely proportional to the number of chess pieces left in your team. OC
