About this deal

Being less a play set, and more for display (or playing chess) is probably the reason the set is recommended for age 10 and up rather than the more usual 8+ years. They are probably not available this year in black or white, but have previously been – so I may try to source some to make the figures all black or white. Aside from the pieces moving hands-free and clobbering each other with chairs, the fictional game looks a lot like regular chess and aficionados will recognise the chessmen as the medieval, and appropriately mysterious, Isle of Lewis pieces.

As previously noted, the set comes with three minifigures: Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. The size, style and colour make this board identical to the one seen in The Philosopher’s Stone with the only difference being the lack of gold edging – oh, and the decades of wear by the hands of generations of Weasleys! But there is no way around it if you are to build a chess game – and you do get a pretty neat and fully functional chess game with this set. Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive. The pieces in Th e Isle of Lewis Chess Set (Wizard’s Edition) have been made in England to the exact specifications of the original artefacts – and their cardinal and ivory colouring make them a perfect match for Harry and Ron’s set.It is your responsibility to make sure that your operating equipment is compatible with the relevant software or video DVD before purchasing and that software purchased is functionally adequate for your needs.

The size is perfect for playing chess, and as noted the rubber tyres underneath work well in preventing the board sliding around on the table. I had originally planned to look into options for integrating this with the castle sets, but I must admit that with its size, it is going to look out of scale with the various Hogwarts modules. The "Dragon Variation of the Slytherin Defence" appears to be a pun on the real-world Sicilian Defence, Dragon Variation. An individual who defeated all of these champions was given the Grand Master Cup, which was awarded to Harry Potter. In this movie, Ron Weasley plays a game of chess to save his own life and that of Harry and Hermione.
