The Lighted LED Chess and Checker Set is more than just a chess and checker set; it is a work of art meant to inspire awe into whoever beholds the beauty and dares to play a game.
To play “on the go,” a wall plug and car adapter is included with the set, meaning you can literally take it with you and play almost anywhere, even on road trips. All you need is a power source you are ready to play. A sturdy storage case is also included to keep your pieces safe from harm when traveling those long dreary distances.
The ancient game of chess combined with the striking modern LED technology, truly puts this set apart from the rest. Instead of the traditional black and white chess sides, this set comes in soft subtle green and ice cool blue, with every piece being lit from its own LED. The design is modern and sleek, with the yellow of the blocks creating a nice back drop for the green and blue. The pieces are strong and sturdy, with the King and Queen standing a proud three inches tall. Royalty as it was meant to be displayed.
To avoid confusion, the checkers sides glow a greenish yellow and bright red, respectively. To quote: “these futuristic pieces are designed to give the appearance of towers of light,” which would no doubt impress your opponent.
Despite not being built around a theme, like the stunning Kingdom Hearts Chess Set Design or the geeky Star Wars Chess Set: The Geeky Face of Chess, this set stands out (maybe due to the LED 🙂 when it comes to design and brilliance. Pardon the pun. It kind of reminds of me those days from my early childhood when lights out was a strictly set rule; however, lights out meant reading or playing games under the covers with the help of a flash light. If only we had this set back, playing in the dark would not have been a problem in the first place.
The set measures 14 inches in length by 12 inches in width by 2 inches in height, and weighs approximately 2Lbs. So, if you are one of those people who not only enjoy playing chess, but also marvel at the beauty and ingenuity of the sets we have at our disposal today, then now is the time to add this set to your Christmas Shopping Wish list. It runs for only $89.99.
