Warhammer 40,000: Regicide

A chess-inspired game set in the Warhammer 40k universe. The game combines traditional chess gameplay with Warhammer 40K's tactical unit abilities. Regicide is also a game that exists and is played within the Imperium of Man universe.


The concept of Regicide was created by Warhammer 40k novelist, Dan Abnett, who created the rules of the game and the reasons why some characters would play it - often as a way to improve their tactical and strategic skills, hopefully translating onto the battlefield.
