For a golf player, this set is a must. Beautiful brass and silver finished pieces
face off against each other in this Brass and Silver Pewter Golf theme chess set.
With 8 golf balls to use, each player has plenty of shots! The pawns are represented
by balls on tees, and some pro shooters for the other major pieces, so there is
plenty of competition between opponents!
The king and queen appear to have the game well in hand--the king golfer is
leaning on a golf club with his legs crossed making himself the picture of confidence.
He's just waiting for the other person to putt into the water! The queen is
also leaning on a golf club, but a little more ready for action--this time no
crossed legs. When we get to the bishops, we find a golfer showing his form:
a mighty swing just ready for execution! And, for the knights, we have the greens'
skills: the putt to put it in the hole. Not to be left out, when you're in transit
to a better strategic position for checkmate, just store your clubs in the caddy's
bag (the rooks)!
The only difference between these players are their brass vs silver colors--otherwise
it appears that they have the same golf smarts. Therefore, it's up to you to
give them the winning birdie!
These finely wrought brass and pewter chess sets are painted with lead-free
paint. While the pieces are sturdy and not easily breakable, we do not recommend
them for children below 10 years of age since they are very high-end chess sets
and need to be handled with care.
