Updates to the computer version and the new "MMXX" set

Some bugs have been fixed, the interface has been improved, but most importantly, the project has been expanded with another set of pieces and a board. This time the design focuses on the fairytale characters of the Black and White principalities, where everyone can wrestle for values close to their hearts.

At the head of the black side of the new set is a cruel tyrant (the figure - Kniaź), next to him is a hand with bluish fingers (the figure - Kniažyč), a symbol of immense thirst for power. The black king is opposed by a white queen(figure - Kniaź for the white side) and a hand folded in a symbol of victory (figure - Kniažyč).

Right from the start, you'll need to determine which side you're prepared to stand for and which character to bring to the Throne.

The figures of the Hietmans are depicted in the new set as powerful weapons - information resources. On the black side stands the propaganda media microphone, which is the mouthpiece of the black Prince. His antipode, the white smartphone, is the white army's main helper and leader.

It should be remembered that Getman is the strongest piece of the Belarusian and Litvin chess.

In the MMXX set Harmata are represented as people, but during a game of chess their 'shots' and the losses they bring to the opponent are commensurate with the action of the guns.

The black side is in charge of the black magistrate, who can throw any piece behind bars with a single blow of his gavel. He is opposed by the demanding hammer blow of the workers - the workers of the factories and plants, the white side.

The fabulousness of the set is also emphasised by the design of Vieršnik. On both the black and white sides, they are presented in the form of cars - the modern equivalent of a horse. On the black side is a blue minibus without any special identification marks, and on the white side is an ambulance.

The Vieršnik figure appears unexpectedly, usually from around a corner (the Rider moves in a "Г"), and can completely change the situation on the chessboard - taking an important piece into his car.

Laddzia, which in classical chess traditionally looks like a tower, has also taken on the appearance of a building in the new set. In addition, the conditional flags of each side are displayed on the rooftops to make them more recognisable.

The core of the white and black armies are Ratniks. On the one hand, they are the servants of the black Kniaź, ready to knock any piece off the board and prevent the opponent from taking the Throne. The main thing is to wake up to the game with the first Ratniks and cleverly calculate their moves.

The Ratniks, on the other hand, are women in white dresses with flowers in their hands, who push forward just as tenaciously and sweep away the tyrant's army with their strength, sometimes creating incredible combinations.

The fabulous MMHH set gives you the chance to try and win the throne, the symbol of supreme power, with a new experience. At the same time, in Belarusian Chess it can be done without blood and murder (there is a chance of victory with minimal losses).

All coincidences are coincidental, all characters are fairytale characters.
Enjoy the game!
