ST2018 Elizabethan Chess Set

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 3:53 pm

There are lots of Elizabethan chess sets out there in the big wide world, but this one seems extremely nice in the category of quality. The price proves my theory too. But not like it’s extremely expensive. It’s worth the quality you get for these little things. It’s made from crushed marble, and the king it 5 inches tall, which is pretty tall and hefty compared to other sets. If I could pick out my favorite piece, it would most likely be the queen, who has a very peaceful look on here face. I like that. Wish my wife did that every now and then.

 





ST2017 American Civil War Chess Set

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 3:52 pm

This is a Civil War chess set from Chess Baron. Nothing too ‘out there’ with this set, but it’s still nice. No eye candy in the pieces, but they do look very well made. especially the knight, who looks like someone spent alot of time and effort on. The price is extremely high though. You could get a set even better than this one on Chess Baron for half as much. But hey, that’s just my own opinion. You may think this is one of the best sets you have ever seen. That’s how humans differ.

TH2066 Hand Painted Winnie the Pooh Chess

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 5:21 pm

Awww, another Winnie the Pooh set from ChessBaron. I love this set because of the fact that not only do I love the show, but it brings back old memories long forgotten of my child hood. Kind of brings you back to the wonderful world of being a kid again. And I especially love the chess board that is included with this set. All themed up with Winnie the Pooh characters, specially coloured squares, and a story that reads “Pooh had forgotten how to play chess and the more he thought about it, the more muddled he got in his mind.”

 





TH2065 Winnie the Pooh Chess Pieces

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 5:18 pm

Now, this is a set of chess pieces I might actually want. Winnie the Pooh use to be my favorite show when I was a kid. That’s practically all I ever watched. I didn’t think anyone still remembered that show enough to make something after it. Awww piglet, you’re so cute. You too Winnie. And get glad Eor. It’s all okay. As for the quality - all the pieces look really nicely carved, with some pretty good quality material used like all of the ChessBaron range of chess pieces they sell. (I figured if I said that, if they ever see this article, they would be happy with me)

 





TH2064 Peter Rabbit Hand Painted Chess Pieces With Board and Case

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 5:16 pm

Awww, how cute. I love these little figures. I almost forgot I’m looking at a chess set. Little cute foxies reading books, and duckys dressed up like my grandma. And some other animal in a little bonnet. I can keep on describing each piece for you but I’m pretty sure you can see for yourself. But they are just so cute, and I’m not sure why. Wait - guys arn’t suppose to think things are cute. woops. Hope none of my homies stumble upon this article. I must change personalities here - Ahem - yea, this sets okay. Rabbit looks like it would taste pretty good if I shot it and cooked it.

 





TH2063 Peter Rabbit Chess Set With Board and Case

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 5:14 pm

Ya know - I hate when I come across a set that just has nothing interesting to write about it. But that thought didn’t even come close to going though my head when I first saw this set. So much to say about this set! It makes no sense unless it’s based off of some Disney movie I’ve never heard of. Rabbits, squirrels, possums - just where to begin? And why are the possum thingys reading books? and squirrels trading nuts? Rabbits wearing jackets? Ohhhhhhh, I just don’t know. But this is a great set. Kind of like the dogs that are so ugly they’re cute.

 





TH2062 SAC Battle of Trafalgar Hand Painted Chess Set

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 5:11 pm

This set kind of resembles some other sets Chessbaron offers on their site. It’s based on the old English army during the time of the civil war. Plus it’s hand painted. Which I don’t know who cares. A machine can paint just as well, and you don’t have to pay those things, but whatever floats your boat. Pretty accurate interpretation of the good ole days though. I love the detail that looks like was put into this. It really looks like a nice collectors set if your into this stuff.
