Knuckles To Tails 3: Sonic The Hedgehog Immortalized With Chess Set


Posted December 2, 2008 - By r_pad

Well...if The Frankllin Mint can hock American civil-war chess-sets, then why can't we have a Sonic the Hedgehog chess set? That's exactly what I saw this morning on Sega Nerds. According to the site:

"The Chess pieces have all been (naturally) replaced with a Sonic-related theme, and thankfully they have strayed away from the most annoying characters.  Sonic takes on the role of King, Amy his Queen, Knuckles the Bishop, Tails’ is the Knight/Horsie, leaving Chaos Emeralds as the Castles/Rook.  Plus one of the most iconic symbols of Sonic games comes in too, Rings are used in place of Pawns."

Part of me thinks this is kind of cool. Part of me wishes the pieces were made out of pewter, for a more distinguished look. And part of me is already envisioning a Final Fantasy VII chess set, which would be way cooler. I can see it now.... Cloud and Tifa would be the king and queen for one side, while Zack and Aeris would be the king and queen for the other.

What do you guys think? Do you dig the Sonic set? What video-game chess-set is floating around in your head?
