All credit to in these arms for sparking the idea :D

Althought I never learnt to play chess........What would you think to a chess set styled on Tomb Raider? Who/what would be the pieces?

Let's call the black and white pieces the Good Side and Bad Side. Paste in your ideas......

Good Side
Pawns (8)
Rooks (2)
Knights (2)
Bishops (2)
Queen
King


Bad Side
Pawns (8)
Rooks (2)
Knights (2)
Bishops (2)
Queen
King

Wicked I love chess!:D

Lara and Kurtis have to be king and queen...but Lara as king and kurtis as queen since she's the main character.

lmao!!:vlol: Kurtis=queen!!
Oh that's rich. Lara can be queen. Kurtis can be king
The queen is much more powerful as much as I'm concern. The king can move only one space

Yeah...but Lara is more important than Kurtis isn't she;) the king is the most important.
but I guess it would work your way too:)

yeah. The king is important, but I would like to move a lot using the queen in chess, so Lara is for me.

Either way, it could work your way too :D

Yeah it could!:D
This would be a great project for Greenkey to do!:D

Much easier to make the Bad team, since baddies in TR outnumber the heroes (Lara, that is) a thousand to one :p

Bad Side
Pawns - Mummified Atlanteans
Rooks - Normal Atlanteans
Knights - Atlantean Centaurs
Bishops - Winged Atlanteans
Queen - Natla

I guess you could have a chess set for each game...:)
But that's like 7 X 32 pieces plus 7 boards...quite alot.

Kurtis should have no involvement whatsoever. :ton: The pieces should be based on 'classic' Tomb Raider characters and baddies, like for instance scorpions as pawns, tigers as knights etc.

Mmmm... hard dilemma... you can play chess without queens, but not without kings.
Can you imagine a Tomb Raider Chess without Lara on the board? :confused:

I hope you dont mean that crazy guy that you chase with the quad-bike in the jungle levels, he certainly isnt Australian.


I think the good and bad sides should be the same, just a different color, it would look really wierd otherwise.

King: Kurtis
Queen: Lara
Towers: Obelisks
Bishops: Twin Pistols
Knights: Motorcycles
Pawns: hm.. Im not sure about the pawns...

No! Not him :p
I already mentioned Tony, the mad guy from the jungle levels.
I meant the guy who gives you the map in the south Pacific.

Oh Greenkey, when I saw the thread-title "Tomb Raider Chess?" I thought you were organising a tournament:D!

Well, I only know TR3 so don't recognise most of the "creatures" the others have suggested - except Kurtis, of course:vlol:!
