In the summer of 1972, the final match of the World Chess Championship
in Reykjavik saw the ultimate showdown: US American Bobby Fischer challenged the reigning world champion Boris Spassky from the Soviet Union.
Touted by the media as the most important sporting event of the Cold War,
an incomparable thriller unfolded ...and now, you can be right in the middle of it.
In Match of the Century - just as in a real championship match - you play one another over a series of games. However, here each game
only lasts a few short and intense turns, so every decision counts in pulling off the win. As you play cards with unique effects from your asymmetrical decks, each of you manipulates the mental endurance of the other and the outcome of each quick game. But weigh your options carefully, because only by giving up the advantage can you use
your cards effects.
This tactical card game for 2 players captures the spirit of the famous chess match of 1972.
Prevailing over your opponent by triggering your cards’ effects at just the right moment is a very rewarding challenge.
