Star Wars Chess Set - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Calendars.com.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Founded in 1999, Calendars.com brings together the latest Internet technology with the world's largest calendar inventory to create the Web's biggest and best calendar store. Calendars.com also has a great selection of games, puzzles and gifts.  Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in theaters in December.  The Star Wars merchandise available at Calendars.com would make nice gifts for fans of the movie.
As far as Star Wars fandom goes, we are neither here nor there.  We will watch the movie, but won't wait in long lines to see it.  We aren't over-the-top with the allure of it, but do have some Star Wars merchandise in our home.  One piece that we've had out on the coffee table recently is the Star Wars Chess Set from Calendars.com.  The overall aesthetic of the game set is stunning.  The chess pieces are made of plastic and features movie-themed playing pieces and board.  There is a mix of characters from the older and newer movies.  Darth Vader, Han Solo, C3PO, and Darth Maul are just some of them.  Some even have weapons in their hands, prepared for battle.  The fine detailing of the pieces is impressive.  Each character is set upon a circle pedestal for stability.

Although it can be used as a game set, this can also be used as a decorative piece.  It's functional for either one.  There are instructions included with the game.  As I mentioned, I keep our chess set out.  Although I'm not very good in the game of chess, we've had a good time going against each other once in a while trying to see who can win at the game. 

Win It!
 
One person will win a Star Wars Chess Set.

I don't think so. I vaguely remember the first movie from childhood and it just doesnt excite me.

Theron Willis said...

I'll watch the movie once released on Netflix.

Romeo said...

The impact of my disabilty has reflected on my ability to go to the theaters much less hang with others. The chess set would be a perfect piece of entertainment till I can afford to buy the movie on DVD! The same activity that I have been at one time given to strengthen my mind: eye - and - hand coordination and was the last gift I received for birthday, Christmas etc. Yet, the opportunity would bring back that of great memories and imagination art for which I love to sketch to get my mind off my pain - this resulted from a car & pedestrian accident for which I was the pedestrian!
