It has been quite a while since I have had the opportunity to play chess, but even since I was a kid, it has always been one of my favorite board games (behind Monopoly). Unlike a lot of board games, chess doesn’t take a big chunk of time to play and most people are familiar with it so you don’t have to take forever explaining all of the intricacies of how to play the game.
One of the other things I have also loved since I was a kid is Batman. Well it seems somebody decided those to needed to collide and the result was this epic Batman Chess board!
The clearly awesome folks over at The Noble Collection are selling this insanely awesome Batman chess board for $795. I will admit that is a lot of money to drop on a chess set (more than I could justify) but this is definitely one of the coolest chess sets ever made!
This Batman chess set not only looks cool, it has 50 LEDs surrounding the board to give it some cool lighting. Not only that, the Batsignal projects up from the city onto the ceiling (which is probably the coolest feature).
The Joker, Catwoman, Riddler and Penguin battle Batman, Robin, Batgirl and Commissioner Gordon in this epic game of chess. The pieces also measure up to 5 1/2″ tall! That is huge!
If you love Batman, Chess and you have $800 burning a whole in your wallet, I would suggest you get this!
