Marvel vs. DC Superhero Chess Pieces
Chess is considered a stately game. Played best by sophisticated, mature minds that enjoy a timeless battle of wits, its reputation is unmatched worldwide. So what happens to chess when you replace the traditional pieces with superheroes? In our humble opinion, it gets 66% better.
Eaglemoss has released a delightful array of both DC and Marvel chess pieces, with everyone from heroes like Batman, Superman, Wolverine, and the Hulk to villains like Doctor Octopus and Scarecrow. Entertainment Earth is where North American customers can score these pieces, which range in price from $15 or $16 for individual characters. We’re not if this will settle the DC vs. Marvel debate, or even who the best chess player is in your house, but it’s a start. [Purchase]
