What if you took the satisfaction of solving puzzles and mixed it with the intensity of blitz chess? You'd have Puzzle Rush—Chess.com's new feature that has everyone with early access going crazy. 

The rules are simple: 

  • Solve as many puzzles as you can in five minutes.
  • Each puzzle gets harder as you go.
  • Three strikes and you’re out.

Finally hit 30!!

I personally got past 30, which felt insane. But right now, top players are trying to break 50. Last night, Hikaru Nakamura spent hours on a private Twitch stream trying to get there and couldn't break 49! Who will be the first to pass the barrier!?

Top Puzzle Rush attempts.

WGM Tatev Abrahamyan was also doing her best to get to 50 on Twitch yesterday and was deep into the 40s many times. 

What are you waiting for? Try your first Puzzle Rush!

Puzzle Rush is available now on the web, and will be released for iOS very soon (in a few days). The Android version is coming early next year.
