Happy Holidays from Ripstone
And that’s not all! As a special festive treat for fans of Chess Ultra, we are launching the Easter Island chess set the week before Christmas as a free holiday gift for all players. The Easter Island chess set is inspired by the mysterious Moai of Easter Island, Polynesia. These head-like, monolithic chess pieces have been beautifully crafted, bringing the Moai not only to life – but to the chess board. Keep your eye on the Chess Ultra store for updates on when you can download the free Easter Island DLC!
