This is chess in Minecraft! And this chess isn't just the ordinary chess, this is MineChess! It's like the Harry Potter style of chess. The pieces live, and 'capturing' a piece is more violent than the capturing you're used to with chess.
This mod includes special moves like pawn promotion, castling and 'En Passant'. It also includes AI!
When you select a piece by right clicking it you can view the possible moves of this piece (can be disabled in the config) :

Special thanks to:
-Pate, for creating ChessMate, which I've used to create the AI (allowed by the copyright). His github can be found here.
-Pahimar, for being open source with Equivalent Exchange 3. He showed me how to do in world rendering (used in the possible piece movement viewer).
-Xander van den Arend, for modelling the pawn.
-DancingPeral for the Spanish translation.
