LEGO 40158: Review Lego Pirates Chess

As you can imagine, laying the tiles to form the chessboard is quite tedious and repetitive and is easily the most mundane part of the entire build. Let’s take a closer look at the individual pieces.

Both joke characters are the only pawns with alternate faces and all minifigures in this set have back printing. Using simple red 1 x 1 studs, each component can be stacked on top of each other. It drastically reduces the surface area to make for easy storage or convenient display. As you can see on the top layer, both side scenes can be combined together to create a beachside scene.I was really blown away by this clever feature as its not immediately apparent when you first lay eyes on the set. The extra 800 pieces are a nice little bonus. This has got to be one of the best surprises of 2015 and is one of my favourite buys of the year.

I do like the idea of breaking up the board and having storage for the minifigures. What do you think about the stud on the board?

You’ve picked up on the off center pieces!

I don’t think there is an elegant solution to it without making each square bigger. Now hoist the mainsail and get ready for victory, me hearties!
