Notice anything wrong with this chess set?

  • #1

  • #2

    White is setup on blacks side?

  • #3

    Nothing wrong with anything, they should have just turned the board around.

  • #4

    They have the pieces on the wrong side. I have seen some that had the squares numbered completely backwards from BOTH sides. That is why I am not against pay a little more money for good quality.

    It appears to be, yes. And vice versa. Unless I'm missing something?

    You'd think if it had a Gold Award, they'd have got the setup right Undecided.

  • #8

    Queens are also on wrong color and the kings resemble Alec Baldwin.

  • #9

    I've just noticed - aren't the bishops facing the wrong way?

  • #10

    Black king and queen - and coordinates

  • #11

    All you need to remember is "White on right and Queen on her own colour." 

    The Queen and King need to switch spots (for white and black.)

  • #12

    No.

    The board co-ordinates would still be wrong.

    Black & White pieces must swap sides.

  • #13

    And the kings would still look like Lizzie Borden.

    That award is probably presided over by the CEO's 4-year-old kid.

    One of the pawns is smaller.

  • #16

    Which one? They all look the same to me.

  • #17

    White is set up on black's end of the board. Kind of a dumb mistake for a photograph, especially since the board has coordinate labels!

    Plus the black king and queen are mixed up. Looks like kind of a cheap set. (snobbishly) :)
