Embark on an adventure in Hyrule with all of your favorite characters! This Legend of Zelda collector’s edition is the must-have Zelda chess set of any fan’s dreams!
From its initial release back in 1986, the Legend of Zelda video game series has captured the hearts and imaginations of players of all ages. Over the last few decades, newer editions to the game have continually been released, drawing in generations of new fans, as well as keeping the fun alive for those who have been fans since the start!
Now, in 2023, there are nearly 20 installments of this classic video game, each with its own unique enhancements to the classic tale of Link – a young boy on a mission to rescue a beautiful princess.
For fans who can’t get enough of the characters and story, even when they aren’t in front of the gaming console, a number of classic board games (from Monopoly to Yahtzee) have been re-imagined with a Legend of Zelda theme.
We are excited to announce that chess is one of these games – and that the set is truly something special! Video game enthusiasts, lovers of unique chess sets, and die-hard fans of the world of Legend of Zelda are bound to love this stylish set.
So gather your courage, your Master Sword and Light Arrows – or perhaps the sword of the Six Sages instead! – and get ready to explore the land of Hyrule as you’ve never quite experienced it before.
This Legend of Zelda Chess Set is absolutely beautiful, and would make the perfect gift for any Zelda fan! Sold by Chess House, one of the biggest chess stores in the world, this set is so modestly priced that it could even be the perfect birthday gift for a young child.
The chess pieces in this set are the heroes and villains of the Legend of Zelda video game series. The heroes are painted gold and villains, black. On the heroes’ side we have Link as the king, Zelda as the queen, Impa as the bishops, Epona as the knights, Darunia as the rooks, and Navi as the pawns. The villain pieces are Ganondorf as the king, Twinrova as the queen, Iron Knuckles as the bishops, Phantoms as the knights, Armos as the rooks, and Deku Nuts as the pawns.
The pieces in this Zelda chess set are made of polystone – a strong and durable stone-like material. The kings, Ganondorf and Link, are 2 ⅞“ and 2 ⅝“ and weigh 1.2 oz and .7 oz, respectively. Both kings have a 1” base.
This striking black and gray Zelda chess board features gold trim and Triforce symbols on either side – to infuse your pieces with the golden power! The board measures 20” x 16 ½“ with 1 ¾” squares. The board is ⅛” thick. This Legend of Zelda chess set comes packaged in an attractive box that allows you to keep the main character pieces on display when you’re not playing.
Inside the World of the Legend of Zelda – On a Chess Board!
This Legend of Zelda Collector’s Edition Chess Set is bound to spark the imaginations of fans as they choose a side (Link or Ganondorf) to side with for their chess match!
The beloved Legend of Zelda story is about a young hero named Link, and his journey to free the beautiful princess Zelda from the clutches of the evil, power-hungry dark lord Ganondorf.
The details and specifics of the story differ slightly across the different installments of the Legend of Zelda video game franchise. But the basic characters and elements remain – it’s the classic “hero’s journey.”
A young boy gains bravery and skills as he travels far and wide through the forest. He faces many foes, completes challenges, and ultimately rescues Princess Zelda from the Ganondorf – who seeks to glean power from her goddess bloodline.
