WizKids has created a chess set based on the video game Team Fortress 2. The Team Fortress 2 Chess Set pits the rival RED and BLU teams against one another, and features hats that can be swapped between pieces. It will be available to purchase online from ThinkGeek and the Valve Store by the end of the year, and comes with a unique in-game item, the Grandmaster Hat.
When the troops from Reliable Excavation & Demolition and Builders League United aren’t on the battlefield, they often unwind in the green room together. They sip sodas, eat cheese-flavored snacks, and play board games. But not just any board game. They play chess. Ah, chess – that classic game that simulates two sides on a battlefield. TWO SIDES AT WAR!!! The tables flip and the guns come out. It’s RED vs. BLU all over again in this Exclusive Team Fortress 2 Chess Set.
Exclusive Team Fortress 2 Chess Set is an absolutely beautiful rendition of chess. BLU pieces vs RED pieces, with a twist. That’s right: HATS!! The pieces of Team Fortress 2 Chess have hats that literally twist off (using Construct-o-Lock technology) and can be swapped between pieces. What happens when hats switch? Even more TF2 zaniness. Oh, and you don’t just get these wicked pieces when you get a Exclusive Team Fortress 2 Chess Set. You just don’t get the game board. You get even more – some DLC love for the video game. Because Exclusive Team Fortress 2 Chess Set is the gift that keeps on giving. Just like the Pyro’s fire. Awwww.
