#1! That's right, this set is probably the NUMBER ONE selling fantasy set! If
you just have a look, you'll see why...
A finer combination of wild color bursts, theme, and chess can hardly be found.
You'll find everyone oohing and ahhing when you pull this one out! Brilliant
color themes characterize ALL the pieces, for both sides, in striking fashion.
From the king sitting on his throne to the castles in the corner, every piece
is simply eye-catching!
Have a look at the front ranks for example. The one side with the lovely pink/purple/light
colors rank of dragons calmly waits the coming conflict with the look only dragons
can have. Facing them are the just as lovely blue/white dragons, holding a talisman
in their hands and looking very determined indeed! Then, moving to the back
ranks there is the many turreted castle as the refuge for all, the rook providing
protection from the rear.
Now, looking at the rest of the blue ranks, each piece is formed with care,
and appears to be pausing for just the instant before it continues on its lively
course! The knights, true to form, are dragons with a 'knight' riding them.
To call him a knight sounds a little unusual though! The pair are just ready
to fly off to the battle, and provide an energetic part to the fight. The bishops
are a seated wizard protected by the overshadowing wings of his dragon as he
ponders the next move in the war--will it be by wand or by pawn? And finally
the royal pair. The queen is standing, cheering on the ranks with her guarding
dragon watching carefully from behind as they oversee the progress of the battle.
And the king himself! He is deep in thought, analyzing the next move. Can his
dragon pawn be promoted yet to another guardian of the queen?
As for the red ranks, cheerful figures, smiles, and even a few teeth are to
be seen! The knights, like the blue side, have a rider on the dragon, but this
time it is a lady riding the dragon, which matches the colors quite well. The
bishops, with the sorcerer and his dragon both having their arms raised, look
like they have already found the winning move. It appears to be a wand, not
a pawn move! Or should that be staff, as they look somewhat like Gandalf from
the Lord of the Rings? And the royal couple are well at ease. They must know
that their army is well guided and trained, so the queen is calmly sitting under
the watchful eye of the protecting dragon, and the king observes his troops
This set is sure to be a delight to look at and more to play! Great for the
living room, any room, even the club for special events and more! No matter
what, it will draw a crowd with it's brilliant colors and creative themes!
