But even if one were to afford the entire set of costumes for both teams, it would be difficult to impossible to play an actual game of chess with Webkinz as pieces. Diagonal movement, the movement of knights, and castling would not always be possible. It would depend on what other pieces might be blocking the way. I don't think it would be pleasant to have to move several pets out of position to clear a path, move the piece (knight, for instance) that is actually being moved into its new position, and then move the other pets back into their proper positions in order to complete a turn.

CrystalFlute expressed a desire for chess lawn pieces. I'll heartily second that (as will my daughter), as long as the statues could be placed both indoors and outdoors. With statues for chessmen, there wouldn't be a problem moving them to play a game on a room-sized board.

That still leaves the problem of how to play a game with another person who is not physically present. Correspondence chess (playing by mail) where each player has an identical board set up and sends a message giving his move to his opponent and his opponent moves the appropriate piece on his board then decides on his own next move before mailing the move to his opponent is not going to work in Webkinz World because you can't chose useful thingsto say, like "rook to H5," in Kinzpost. (Correspondence chess games can take anywhere from hours to months to finish, depending on the conditions and rules for the individual game.)
A chess game could never be played with the webbies themselves. However, I'm really hoping that there will be an in-room chess game, like the checkers game we have now. See my post on previous page. Perhaps it will be part of the theme. It would be like playing chess against the computer. I play chess against the computer a lot. It is a good way to improve game playing skills. Can you feel my excitement?! LOL!

Cool. I hope I can get it! But I don't have enough pets to play it LOL (29). But I usually would buy different toys from the wshop and I bought the game theme flooring, So I would play with that.

Looks like a whole new theme with the yellow and blue chessboard wallpaper and flooring. Did I mention that I love this?? LOL! Happy dance! Happy dance!

Here is the pic of the chess set that was rumored as coming a year or two back.

This is my chess room now. Won't those outfits just look adorable on my little chess pieces?

That's quite adorable, but I think they should make it so it isn't eStore. Personally, I hate the idea of the eStore.
