What is the game Checkmate about?
Checkmate is played between two teams: Queen Team and the Challengers Team. The game involves sixteen rounds, and each team gets a chance in the alternative rounds. Before the game begins, each player has to wear buttons assigned to them by the creator; the button’s color for Queen’s team is red, and for the Challengers team, it’s blue.
If round one says it’s the turn for Queen’s team, then all the team members have to chase the opponent team members. After that, the Queen’s team members have to press the buttons of the Challengers’ team members. Whenever the button of any team member is pressed, he will be stuck in a place for some time, and after that, his button will change its color to red. This way, he will be playing for Queen’s team from there, and the same happens when it’s the turn for the other team. In the end, the team with fewer members will lose the game, and they will die, including the King.
