This complete chess set package from Manopoulos includes their Giants Battle chess set, brass chess board, and an attractive wood case that holds the chess pieces and board. This chess set and pieces are based on the last battle of Zeus in which he established his dominion in Olympus. Zeus is the king, Athena the queen, Aris the bishop, Centaur the knight, and the giants are the pawns. A
column from an ancient Greek building is the rook. The dark squares on the chess board are painted in a multi-color red enamel and the entire board is lacquered to prevent tarnishing. The wood case looks like a real antique with its old, rustic look. A felt-lined plastic tray inside has individual compartments for storing chess pieces while the chess board nests one top. A gorgeous chess set that will look beautiful in your home or office.
