About this deal

The set also includes an exclusive golden anniversary minifigure, as most of the other mid-2021 sets. The game Harry and Ron are playing in the Great Hall looks like any other game of ‘muggle’ chess – except for the pieces being animated and violently attacking their opponents. Being less a play set, and more for display (or playing chess) is probably the reason the set is recommended for age 10 and up rather than the more usual 8+ years.

Bringing one's own army or borrowing someone else's was sometime a requirement of chess tournaments, such as the Walter Aragon Wizard Chess Competition. In an unknown year, students from the two schools played in a chess tournament, in which Hogwarts suffered a devastating loss, and Beauxbatons had remained undefeated ever since.A similar concept is featured in Mikhail Bulgakov's novel The Master and Margarita, where Professor Woland (alias Satan) and his retinue play with a supernatural chess set whose pieces are animate and move by themselves. When Harry Potter played with Seamus Finnigan's chess men, they did not trust his judgement and offered him advice. The rook pieces are taller than the pawns and equipped with shields and a more pointy helmet with nose guard.

I do like the angle making it look like the horse is galloping, but the horse itself kind of looks unfinished.

Inside the box are six numbered bags with parts (two have the number 1), two unnumbered bags with larger parts and the instructions. The Harry Potter Wizard Chess Set includes 32 moulded plastic chess pieces (each inspired by the grand statues seen in the film), and a folding playing board.

Ron's chess playing was said to be " the best-played game of chess Hogwarts has seen in many years" and was awarded 50 points for his efforts. A witch or wizard's chess sets would start to learn and take on the skills of their owners, with less experienced chess players being able to use the more experienced wizard's chess pieces to improve their skill. An individual who defeated all of these champions was given the Grand Master Cup, which was awarded to Harry Potter.
