Marvel Chess Pieces (2005)


Hulk and the Abomination are rooks.  I have no idea what that means in chess but I have to imagine that rooks are the muscle.  But why is it that Abominaton  looks so much better than the Hulk?  These pieces are pretty cool – but I don’t play chess so… but I do like the pieces.  This series has Mr. Fantastic and Dr. Doom are the Kings and Storm and Mystique are the Queens.  This line is interesting because they sell them in solid boxes so you can’t see what you are buying.  Hulk and “A-Bomb” are the heaviest pieces so I was able to weed which boxes contains them.  I’m smart like that!

  2. The Rook IS actually one of the coolest pieces. It can move forward OR backwards in horizontal OR vertical directions as many spaces as are unoccupied in the direction you want to move. It can also take part in a very special move with the king called “castling”. Other than the Queen, they are the most valuable pieces on the board 🙂

  3. I know this is a looooong shot but do you still have the pices? Do you have the set? Cause, like, I wanna buy ’em all.
