  • About this item

    The Ministers Standard Folding Chess Set expands and updates the classic game. This board game uses a bigger board. That's 81 squares, 17 squares more, compared to the traditional 64. Also, each player gets to use 18 chess pieces instead of 16. These pieces are made up of one king, two ministers (queens), two bishops, two knights, two rooks and nine pawns. In this chess board game with a twist, the range of attack of the pieces is increased. Elaborate maneuvers can be executed, and one army can even encircle the other. For instance, the two ministers guard the king, eliminating the conventional bishop-side weakness. This toy chess set is more open, dynamic and fascinating than traditional chess. Best of all, the board is printed on both sides. So you can play conventional chess, as well.

    Ministers Standard Chess Set with a Twist:

    • Rigid folding board similar to Scrabble or Monopoly
    • 9" x 9" Ministers chess pattern on one side
    • 8" x 8" conventional chess pattern on the other
    • Additional vinyl roll-up 9" x 9" Ministers chess board
    • Ministers chess cloth bag to carry your tournament-sized chess pieces
    • King height: 3-3/4"
    • 36 impact plastic, weighted, tournament size
    • Pawn height: 2"
    • Chess board game with a twist

    Testing your skills on a SYMMETRICAL Chess board where you still play authentic Chess but in a 9x9 (81) square arena instead of 8x8 (64) field. Box is stunningly beautiful and the hard-board inside has Ministers chess on one side and regular chess on the other…they include a vinyl Ministers 9x9 roll up board -- Bonus! Fantastic VALUE from Walmart and a real treasure of a game, I give it my highest recommendation!!!
