I bought this game yesterday but only did the tutorial which was more of a lesson, telling you how each piece moves. It was a lot to take in all at once. Today I tried a practice game but I was stumped. I didn’t really know what to do. If you press the button with the square on it then it gives you a hint to show you where to go. I kept losing so I started using the hints and I would’ve never even thought to do the moves that it was suggesting and after about 15 minutes I still lost lol.
Chess really is a game that you need a giant brain to play. I don’t know how the people on Big Brother are able to wrap their brain around it because some of them aren’t very bright lol. Apparently they are smarter than I am lol. Unless they are just winging it to pass the time. That’s my guess.
The whole reason I’ve been wanting to buy this game was so I could learn so I would have a reason to build that gothic chess set but I do realize that it would cost me at least $300 to build it. It’s not really that worth it lol. Oh well.
Edit: I calculated the cost of all the molds for making this gothic chess set. It’s $199 just for the molds. Then the chess pieces total to $57.42 and the pawns are $54.96. Total for all of that is $311.38. That doesn’t even include shipping and the expensive cement that you mix to pour into the molds, the glue and the paint. I bet you are looking at probably over $400 to make the gothic chess set. LOL Way too much money. You have to be really dedicated to chess to want to make this.
