The C-C.com CheckMate Chess Contest #2

Postby SavaTheAggie » Sat Jul 26, 2008 6:00 am

In honor of the new LEGO Giant Chess Set, I am pleased to announce the return of the Classic-Castle.com CheckMate Chess Contest!

Category 1: Chess Piece

Create a single chess piece, any medieval style theme. This would include Castle, Ninja, Ancients, etc.

Category 2: Chess set

Create all 16 pieces needed for one Chess faction. This includes 8 pawns, 2 rooks, 2 knights, 2 bishops, 1 queen and 1 king. Any medieval style theme is allowed.

The Rules:
  • All pieces MUST be compatible with the new large LEGO chess board. That means the base of each piece must NOT exceed or overlap a 6x6 stud square.
  • Each piece must NOT exceed or overlap a 1 stud margin in any direction beyond the 6x6 base (max 8x8 overall with a 6x6 base).
  • Chess set entries must be able to be placed on the 48x48 LEGO chess board without its pieces tipping each other over in any configuration.
  • There is no height restriction.
  • There is no piece restriction.
  • Colors count - try to be coordinated.
  • You may enter up to two entries in each of the two categories.
  • LDraw images are acceptable but these entries must use readily available pieces, not large quantities of rare pieces, colors, or figures.

***Submit entries by replying to the entries post (to be posted). If you have more than one picture for your entry, please only post one picture in this thread and link to your offsite gallery of other images.***

***Please limit posted images in this thread to 400x400 pixels. Larger images may be used for greater detail, but must be only linked to offsite, and may not exceed 1600x1200 pixels.***

***Larger pictures than 1600x1200 may disqualify the entry.***

CC will ship prizes USPS Priority up to $4 to anywhere in the USA. Winners outside the USA and/or where shipping is more than $4 will pay the difference.

The Deadline:

Midnight (CC server time) September 1, 2008

Judging:

The Classic-Castle.com admins will decide the winner(s), and thus are ineligable to enter.

Good luck and Leg Godt!

Yes, you must have all 16 pieces of the one chess team built simultaneously for it to be a legitimate entry. You may take pictures of the individual pieces, but you also must have a picture showing them all together so that their overall theme and cohesiveness can be seen.

Category 1 was created so that those who do not have the pieces to create a full compliment of 16 chess pieces could participate.

Thanks for another great contest! I'll try to come up with at least one entry.

I know you say no piece restriction, but is Brickforge stuff OK?

Huzzah! I may have 'time' to enter this one! I really enjoyed the first one, with such restrictions the entries were very creative, I can't wait to see how this one turns out.

Since this is styled after the new chess set, can pieces of the same rank be built different as long as they are similar enough to tell they are the same rank?

God bless.

I'll have to dust off my old chess set, shrink it down and fancy it up to fit the board.
