This cheese is the only food which can entice the Chess Master, for its delicate aroma carries the scent... of victory! The Kings of both teams long for a morsel of this cheese, believing it will bring them mastery over the game, but if you can defeat them, the Chess Master himself will challenge you for a piece. Don't leave this cheese out too long, though, or you may find yourself with a stale, mate.

Using Checkmate Cheese

Locations

Mice

Checkmate Cheese is required to attract the Chess Master.

Checkmate Cheese will attract all the mice in Zugzwang's Tower, but arming it improves the chance a Hunter will encounter the mice needed to fill empty silhouettes in the HUD. For example, if a Hunter needs to attract a Mystic Rook to unlock access to the Mystic Queen, arming Checkmate Cheese will increase the chances of encountering the Mystic Rook.
