LEGO Chess

LEGO Chess

Lego Chess is a Computer chess simulation game using Lego Minifigs for the pieces.


The game featured a western themed board and a pirate themed board. During a game, if a piece is captured, a short video plays of the captured character being caught. Because all the pieces have their own animation for capturing all the other pieces (barring the king), there are 140 total animations. Specifically, there are 60 western themed animations, 60 pirate themed, and 20 other animations: one for completing tutorial mode, one as an introductory cartoon, and three each for pirate story mode, western story mode, winning pirate, losing pirate, winning western, and losing western.
