Review of Thunderbirds Chess Set

thunderbirds_title.jpg

fizz_thunderbirds_1.jpgIt's a landmark year for Thunderbirds as the iconic International rescue team celebrate its 50th anniversary and the launch of Thunderbirds Are Go! on TV and DVD. Tactic Games will combat the boredom with the launch of Thunderbirds Chess. The cult 1960's British science-fiction television series, created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, will celebrate with these two perfect gaming gifts.

Ideal for hardcore Thunderbirds enthusiasts and children, the limited edition Thunderbirds Chess (£39.99) is an amazing 3D chess game with a Thunderbirds theme. Die-hard fanatics will enjoy the traditional game with their favourite theme.

One Raring2go! member has been lucky enough to review the Thunderbirds Chess Set..."My son and I have been lucky enough to sample the Thunderbirds chess set created to celebrate 50 years of Thunderbirds. When I was younger I loved watching the program with my Dad and now my son and I watch it together. I have always enjoyed playing chess-my Grandad taught me, so receiving this game was a perfect opportunity to pass my love and tips of the game on-wish I hadn't, I'm not sure I have won a game since!

The game is presently very nicely in a tin, the pieces look like they are made of metal, however they are only plastic in 2 different shades of silver. (This made it a little hard to differentiate whose pieces were whose. As long as we played in a good light we were fine!) The pieces are very detailed in their design and we fizz_thunderbirds_2.jpgwere impressed that the board had had graphics printed on it too, making it feel like a very special limited edition game.

My son now loves the game as much as I do!"
