This week’s set is G678
Knight's Kingdom Chess Set.
Knight's Kingdom Chess Set was released in 2005 for Knight's Kingdom II. This game has 32 chess pieces and 24 armed minifigures, the most for any castle set. Figures exclusive to this set include the rooks, knights, and good and evil queens.
There are atleast three board variations of this set. The first production run had versions with 4x4 black and white plates glued to a white 32x32 baseplate. Some versions were only partially glued or not glued at all. While making the second production run, LEGO had a shortage of 4x4 plates. Four 2x2 white plates were substituted for each white 4x4 plate. Two 2x4 black plates were substituted for each 4x4 black plate.
