Star Wars Chess

Star Wars Chess

In a galaxy far, far away... Jedi's use their power... to conquer... the CHESSBOARD!


Star Wars Chess is a 1993 chess game developed by The Software Toolworks. It was released on PC and the Sega CD. The game is a standard chess game in which all of the pieces are represented by characters from the original Star Wars film trilogy. Similar to Battle Chess, when one piece captures another, a brief animation plays showing a battle between the two characters. Some of these battles could be particularly humorous, as it is possible for C-3PO (a light side bishop) to defeat Darth Vader (the dark side queen).
