I know you don't think much of the well used term army builder but that is what I think chess is; two opposing armies.
If you know I'm not an army builder, then why are you surprised?
For me the other two chess sets contain ether to many jelly bean knights or skeleton knights to reflect armies I am interested in playing with.
For me this consideration outweighs all others.
For me it doesn't. ”Glued!“ is the main argument for me. Glue makes all Lego useless, no matter how great it would have been without being glued.
And even if a large number of minifigs (for building an army or whatever) is a nice thing to have, I can't disregard what those minifigs look like. And to me the figs from the Viking Chess look just plain boring. (And they are glued! So no chance to reassemble them and get better variation.)
And: In my book Vikings are likely not the type of army that comes uniformed and in file. Plus: Why would they fight each other? They would rather plunder some real enemy. Here the main failure within the whole Viking line had its effect: There were no human enemies.
This is just the sort of nonsense up with which I will not put.
