The LEGO Star Wars Travel Chess Set uses microfigures from the Battle of Hoth game set. The set includes a 16X16 black & white LEGO Chess baseplate and comes in it's own easy to store and carry box (like the old LEGO tic-tac box or the Multi-Game Pack box).
You can make your own authentic LEGO Star Wars Travel Chess Set TODAY using the following parts list:
-Two LEGO Battle of Hoth gamesets
-One 16X16 LEGO baseplate
-One LEGO Tic Tac Toe Box
-A Dejarik hologameboard tile as a decorative element referencing the famous Wookiee scene from the original movie
I used 64 black and white studded plates (32 of each color) sourced via Bricklink for the chessboard, but the grey and blue tiles from the Battle of Hoth gameset will do just as well.
I also used female microfigs from other LEGO gamesets for the Queens on each side (as Princess Leia is conspicuously absent from the Battle of Hoth gameset).
Let's make a LEGO Star Wars Travel Chess Set to get young minds excited about playing the royal game, at home and on the road! I built one for my son on his 6th birthday and he's been hooked on playing Chess ever since.
My grandson built a Lego Star Wars chess set and sent a photo to the Lego Magazine. It was never shown in the magazine. Could you please send me the instructions for your mini chess set? Thank you.
