Greek Chess Set Amazon - Setting Apart The Greek Chess Set From Others

Author : Richie Chan

Chess isn't just about the game itself, for most serious chess players, it is also about the different pieces and the board. The creative looks and quality of the chess pieces and the board make the game so much more interesting. This love of the looks of the game components is one of the primary explanations why chess tournaments take so long to end. Many chess players and fans even go as far as to buy numerous rare themed collectible chess sets, both unusual and modern, to function as numerous decorative creations at home. For many chess players, the Greek Chess Set is a desired theme.

Much like ordinary chess sets, Greek chess sets vary with the Greek influenced chess pieces and board. One of the most well-known Greek inspired themes is the Greek Mythology, similar to the Greek Mythology Chess Set, with famous characters, like Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, Perseus, Hercules, Theseus, Apollo, Aphrodite, Achilles, and so many more. This will also involve famous Greek mythological creatures, like the Hydra, the Furies, centaurs, pans, satyrs, nymphs, and so on. Ancient Greek rulers and soldiers are also normally employed to design these chess pieces, the likes of Alexander the Great, Leonidas, Pericles, Archimedes, Aristotle, Plato, and many more. You may even discover unusual chess pieces that feature different items present during the time of Ancient Greece, like Greek water pots, columns, towers, and so on.

There is also a slight variation with the board of a Greek chess set, which you can spot when you buy one. Quite often, Greek themed chess sets are created from materials, such as wood, stone, or marble, with simplistic styles. Greek chess boards however, are built to be high quality, elegant, and luxurious, even with the simple styles.

As a result, a Greek chess set is often very pricey and is not an ideal set to buy for a child or for beginners. However, you may come across a cheap Greek chess set, one that features plastic pieces and a magnetic board. These less expensive substitutes can readily help a beginner learn how to play chess, though obviously, they don't look much. For individuals looking to coordinate a chess tournament without needing to invest much on the equipment, these alternatives are the finest selection. Additionally, you won't have to go so far to obtain one with these cheaper substitutes.

Ancient Greco styles are quite popular wherever you go. Be it frescoes, works, vases, or even chess sets, to name some, you can always find this kind of design, from Greek phalanxes to ancient Greek buildings, etc.
