    Hi Melody,

    I’m not sure if this has ever been brought up before, but if it has then I apologize in advance. I’m home on break from school, and several Windstones that I had bought with my Christmas money were waiting for me here. When my Dad saw my small PYO dragon he suggested that I get a bunch of them, paint them differently and create a chess set.

    Now, PYO’s are too big and too expensive for me to do something like that, but the idea interested me. Have you ever considered doing a set of small Windstone chess pieces? I know it would probably a nightmare…but I had to ask anyway πŸ˜†

    Loads of people have done that in the UK with fantisy figures, it needs to be done REALLY well or it looks awfully tacky πŸ™

    Yeah. Just go into any board game store and you’ll find dragon chess sets up the wall. They also go for as much as $1000.
    And I agree… unless they are done right, they do look tacky…

    I actually thought about doing a PYO chess set for a while. Fat chance I’ll find the time for it, though.

    Muse – pawn
    Unicorn – knight
    Wolf – bishop
    Little Dragon – rook
    Keeper – queen
    Griffin – King

    Or something. πŸ˜€

    That’s a good set, but the wizard isn’t getting any love. Although I do like the muse as the pawn. Poor muse. πŸ˜†

    I still think Poads should be the pawns if this ever happens. They’d be easier to sculpt tiny versions of too. Shape a lump like a jellybean, give it a beak and a buttcrack, and you’re ready to go πŸ˜† (I know it’d be more complicated than that, but way fewer details than a tiny Muse!)

With the PYOs we have the insert in the bottom, the ( hopefully signed) felt pad to go with them and the glass eyes to make recasting fakes a bit more difficult. I could imagine the difficulty of trying to figure out if a hand painted chess set was legit or not!
    It sucks, but this is a big problem we have.
