Most historians believe the chess pieces, carved from walrus ivory and whale tooth, were made in Trondheim, the medieval capital of Norway, in the 12th century. Play a game of chess with this officially licensed miniature replica of the life-sized chessboard from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, perfect for fans of the Wizarding World! The amount of customs duty and VAT to be paid will be assessed at the point of entry of the destination country. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry had a long history of producing talented Wizard's Chess players, such as the chess master Walter Aragon, as well as Brian Gagwilde, both of whom later became Headmasters at the school. In an iconic scene from the first Harry Potter film, The Philosopher’s Stone, Hermione enters the Great Hall at Hogwarts to find Harry and Ron Weasley settling in for a ‘barbaric’ game of Wizard’s Chess.

Aside from the pieces moving hands-free and clobbering each other with chairs, the fictional game looks a lot like regular chess and aficionados will recognise the chessmen as the medieval, and appropriately mysterious, Isle of Lewis pieces. I do like the angle making it look like the horse is galloping, but the horse itself kind of looks unfinished.

The set also includes an exclusive golden anniversary minifigure, as most of the other mid-2021 sets. Get set to continue the latest craze in collectibles with the Harry Potter Magical Capsules, Series 2! Giant Wizard's Chess kings appeared as Confoundables during the Calamity which affected the wizarding world in the 2010s, guarding the Philosopher's Stone. BNPL is an interest bearing option that allows you to delay payments on your purchases for up to 12 months depending on how much you spend.The Harry Potter Wizard Chess Set includes 32 moulded plastic chess pieces (each inspired by the grand statues seen in the film), and a folding playing board. I would normally have expected something more tower like, but to keep it more figure like, I think it works well.

The deluxe set includes 32 metallic pieces, moulded in detail after the chess pieces in the film and a collapsible chess board.During the Christmas Feast in the 1991–1992 school year, Harry obtained his very own Wizard's Chess set in a number of Wizard Crackers, among other things.

Players moved their pieces by speaking the name of the piece and the square it was to move to by algebraic notation. We believe that The Isle of Lewis Chess Set (Wizard’s Edition) is the closest Harry Potter fans can get to a game of Wizard’s Chess – and, with its elegant presentation box, it makes a magical gift to the Potterhead in your life. Become a wizard with our Noble Collection wands, show your house pride with our badge sets, or simply cuddle up with your very own plush toy. Aside from the self-moving pieces, the rules of Wizard's Chess were exactly the same as Muggle chess.In an unknown year, students from the two schools played in a chess tournament, in which Hogwarts suffered a devastating loss, and Beauxbatons had remained undefeated ever since. On 2 September 1890, Imelda Reyes could be seen in the Slytherin common room spectating, and offering unsolicited advice on, a Wizard's Chess game between a Slytherin boy and a girl whom he was playing.
