Star Wars Chess Set Game
Reasonably priced, Hasbro Star War Chess set has chess pieces that look like Star War characters. Black pieces connotes Imperial characters like Darth Vader and Boba Fett, while Silver pieces are the Rebel characters like R2-D2 and Han Solo.This set includes a game board with 32 Star Wars chess pieces and 32 bases which you will have to be careful not to lose. It also comes with the guidelines.
The Star Wars Chess Set is made out of a plastic, but it’s durable. Chess pieces are very uniquely made as you will be able to recognize which piece represents which Star Wars character. And that’s what I like the most – time and effort they have spent on the characters.
You will also be able to move each chess piece to another base, so you can switch places with your characters. For example, you can make Darth Vader be king, and later you can make him be a knight.
Star Wars Saga Edition Chess Set
This chess set is similar to the previous one. The only distinguishing thing is that this one is the Saga Edition.
This Saga Editon Set includes characters from all 6 movies so nobody will miss on the action.
The chess board is made out of cardboard and it comes with the clear guidelines on how to play. All the characters are made out of solid plastic.
On the Dark Side, you will be able to find Star Wars movie characters such as Storm Troopers, Boba Fett, and Emperor. While on the light side you will be able to find Clone Troopers, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and much more.
All the characters as chess pieces are produced under the license from Lucasfilm Ltd. Keep in mind that this chess set is made for kids of age 8+. So if you are buying it as a gift, make sure you don’t buy it for someone who is under age of 8.
My Concluding Thoughts
The Star Wars Chess Set keeps the game even more excited between you and your friends or family members. The fun won’t fade away from the board. Good collectors item, also a great way to motivate to learn how to play chess if they don’t know already.
Young kids will be able to enjoy their favourite characters while training and practicing their brain by following the rules of chess and keeping their brain active.
