Made this a few months ago for my daughter’s birthday. She loves to play chess and I saw this game somewhere on the internet and decided to make it instead of buying it. The object is to get your four pieces in a row. The pieces move the same way they do in regular chess. The box has walnut top and bottom and olive wood for the sides. The playing surface is end grain of the same walnut and olive wood and the pieces I turned. The knights still need some work to truly be finished. The pieces and the board have magnets so the kids can play in the car. All is finished with wipe on ploy.

Here is link to how to play

Looks like a cross between chess and quarto, nicely done.
