Australian Chess Set
Fun Australian wildlife character pieces for the classical game of chess. Flat packed in a gift box, the game makes a special, easy to post gift. Base size 26 cm x 26 cm. Every tree is different, therefore the colour and grain of timber varies, making each of our products unique. The real work has been done by the tree, we have added the craftwork.
There are 32 pieces – 16 pieces for each side – one in dark woods and one in light . The height of the King is 65mm, there are 16 pieces consisting of 8 pawns, 2 rooks, 2 knights, 2 bishops and a King and Queen all in the same colour. White always goes first in chess.
The Koala is the Queen, The Kangaroo is the King, Emu is the Knight, Kookaburra is the Bishop, Echidna is the Rook and the Wombat as the pawns.
