A LIGHT colored square always needs to go on your right and the queen needs to go on their own color. Yeah…so the corner on the right is black and the queen is on the opposite color. Also, for kiddos this is going to be a hard game to follow unless they are very familiar with the pieces and some of them are hardly distinguishable amongst themselves. Cool in theory, horrible in application. Change it up and make it your own, but I wouldn’t follow their instructions on setup. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful Great novelty build, but hard to play actual chess on it, June 5, 2015 By C. Gafton (Bay Area, CA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: LEGO Pirates Chess Set #40158 (Toy) This is a good novelty chess board build – my first grader had a lot of fun putting it together. However, when it came time for the actual chess play, we found out that pieces are very hard to “move” on the board, that sometimes board pieces stick to the chess figures when you’re lifting them up, etc. In theory, with care, a real chess game can be played; in practice, taking care to put together and restore the integrity of the Lego chessboard at every move gets boring and irritating fast. The setting looks very nice and it is attracting a lot of attention from visitors.The chess figurines have a lot of color variety amongst them, so sometimes they’re hard to distinguish if a pawn is supposed to be a while or black piece… 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
