Lego Chess Set Cover

When I first heard about them I must admit, I didn’t believe it. At the same time I was immediately disappointed at myself for acting so surprised about something in this day and age. I just had to see it for myself, so opened my phone ran a quick search, and there it was… ha! a Lego chess set.

They’re more popular than you’d think too. Quite a few sell each month on Amazon, and I guess with Lego Group hitting consumer sales figures of around $8billion I guess it only adds up. Private collections seem to be on the rise too! Especially from the Lego Technic range.

At the start Lego wasn’t the iconic interlocking plastic brick maker we know today. Way back in the early 1930s Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Christiansen, began his journey by crafting wooden toys. It wasn’t until around 1949 that the iconic bricks were first introduced. Ever since then, Lego has continued evolving into the global phenomenon it is today, inspiring countless hours of creativity and imagination in people spreading across all ages.

Lego’s commitment to quality and innovation has led to the development of a wide range of products, like we found out today, even Chess Sets!

LEGO Iconic Chess Set

LEGO Iconic Chess Set

Use classic LEGO bricks to build your own chess board and then build all the playing pieces too. This set is ideal to take and play wherever you like, as the pieces store conveniently inside the board. It can also be used to play checkers. Includes a buildable chessboard and buildable playing pieces.

We bought this for our 9 year old, who loves chess and all things LEGO. This was the perfect gift for him. Since he completed the build, he’s played several games. The set is beautiful and very well constructed. It’s also a great display and conversation piece. As a bonus, we can also play checkers on it, which is great for the non-chess players in our family. Highly recommend!


Is It Even Possible To Play A Game Of Chess On A Lego Set?

Let’s be honest, nothing beats a game of chess on a nice classic wooden chess set, lined with green felt on a clean smooth wooden board, but it does the trick even on a Lego chess set. It is a great idea for the kids to keep occupied with less screen time and more hands-on time. First assembling the board, then the pieces, followed by a good game of chess with a friend.

However, having said that, it is great to use as a travel set as in most cases the pieces clip on, just like a typical lego brick which is very handy!
