A hitherto unknown Pirates chess set has been found on Malaysian eBay by Chiew.

This 857-piece set will, of course, contain 32 playing pieces although it appears that not all of them are minifigs, the rooks for example.

Still, it will be a good way to stock up on Pirate minifigs. The auction price, 319 Rm, is about £58/$90, so expect the retail price to be around £40/$60.

Bit cheap for an 857-piece set, eh? And a good LEGO game as well!

Where is the mandatory rubber edged dice?

The official price in Malaysia is RM250. :D

Dang. What a way to build an army! Too bad the pawns don't all have hats.

I'm still hoping for a Pirates Battle Pack to augment both my pirate and imperial crews. The chess would be a complete waste for me. If there's a chess set, then hopefully it's just a matter of time before we see a bluecoat warship.

new piece? 4x4 plate with stud in the middle?

And ah well, time to wait another 3-4 years for a LEGO Star Wars chess set :/

@ Jimred: That IS a good idea! How many MOCers are going to buy this for all those Minifigures? At only £40? What a bargain!

@ Nikolaevna: We might see one next year - remember what happened with the Imperial Flagship.

@ Thehornedrat: I really don't know. Probably made up of two 2x4 tiles, two 2x2 tiles and a 2x2 jumper-plate. But you could be right.

The ebay image was taken from a member in Penang who originally posted the image on LOM (Lego fan of Malaysia's) FB page when he spotted the set in the 'Lego Shop' in Queensbay Mall Penang.

Actually, NBJ2002, YOU ARE actually the one who is right, because then the 800+ pieces would make more sense. And also looking closely at the bottom row (the soldiers' side), you can clearly make out that there are indeed 1x4 tiles there!

the Kingdom's Chess set 853373 that I've got is only 328 pieces.

Anyway, the picture is gone on the ebay link. BIN 299.90RM, but local pickup only.

One of our readers said that it's already available at LEGOLAND Florida.

Is there some sort of extra rule that can be added like the pirates being allowed to cheat or something? Because Pirates playing chess would cheat anyway.

Saw it at Legoland Florida today for $79 or $89 dollars. Almost bought it.

I bought this set at Lego Certified Stores in Malaysia. Retailed at MYR249.90 more or less about US$70.00. It was officially on sales at Lego exclusive store on 16th February 2015 along with the Easter set.

My friend got me a set when he was back in Penang for the Lunar New Year celebration. I think as of now this set only found in Malaysia and per above post, Legoland Florida?

If it is selling at US$79.99 or $89.99 then the price in Malaysia is way cheaper, and this would be a first given TLG had always priced the Lego sets lowest in US.
