Nice, nice.

LEGO chess would be a lot of fun to set-up. Playing it would be exactly the same, unless you did some creative rules-blending with Brik Wars.

That's a cool chess set, and I've been considering buying one to get the crap-ton of minis...

And yeah, I think if you mized the rules it'd be wicked.
LEGO Chess Rules
Play as if normal chess, but also using Brikwars rules.
Think that should cover it. :D

That face just screams "Bitchy mother inlaw"

I'd say for Brikchess, Chess movement for the different pieces, all close combat and can only move one piece a turn. Nothing about not attacking that nice peon right next to you even though you didn't move...

Oh. My. Gosh. You are a genius. I think. I'll have to check price differences.

no, he's right. it's one of the more efficient ways to get minifigs, ESPECIALLY ones in uniforms/with weapons/pre-balanced.

but then again, it's medieval. i need spacechess. badly.

They make that as a set???
Why haven't I seen that at the LEGO store?!?!

I have only two more questions...
Where?
How much?

EDIT: Nevermind, I found it. Sheesh it's steep... but there is a lot of really cool stuff with it. However, I wonder if the minifigs come glued together already (like the keychains do). That would suck a bunch.

It looks like they don't sell the regular chess set anymore, just the giant one.
The regular set was about $40. So the price per mini was great. I got one back in January.

They were marked down around then too. I think I got it for about $25 or something. The best thing about the Chess set: BrikWars in a Box. Perfect setup for two people to slug it out on a table top. Very neat.

Sweet, can't wait to see more stuff like this in the future. Very funny Almighty Benny. You draw the chess peices on the far right yourself?
