A decidedly amusing and fun country chess set! This Farmland themed chess set
brought to you by the Chess House will certainly bring a smile to your face, and
most likely a hearty laugh if you checkmate your opponents' farmer with one of
your chickens! Or, even worse, use your farmhouses to trap him in, and the farmer's
wife to chase him down with her basket! This set is one of the most entertaining
theme chess sets on the market.
The farmer, the 'king' of the farm, and his wife, the 'queen' of the farm,
rule over flocks of chickens and some highly spotted pigs and cows. Their refuge
farmhouses are the rooks, and castling now takes on a whole new meaning! The
farmer by castling smartly gets to hide behind his farmhouse and the dedicated
pecking guards. The cows provide the long-range diagonal support in the form
of bishops, and the pigs provide that characteristic pig-like movement--unpredictable
Whether you are from the country or not, this set will be a #1 amusing pastime!
