2018 Christmas Gift Review & Giveaway - Mickey The True Original Collector's Chess Set

All three of my grandsons enjoy playing chess . . . especially when they play against me, because they always win! So, when USAopoly said they would send me one of their new to review, I was very happy to be able to include it in this year's Christmas Gift Review and Giveaway . . . yes, I am able to give one away!

Mickey The True Original Collector's Chess Set
Made by - USAopoly
Ages - 7+

Favorite Features -
  • It is a chess set with Mickey Mouse as King, Minnie as Queen, Donald & Daisy as Bishops, Pete & Goofy as Knights, Pluto & Figaro as Rooks and Chip & Dale as Pawns . . . what isn't there to love about this chess set!
  • Quality pieces and board.
  • Encourages learning strategy and thinking skills.
USAopoly says; "Celebrate 90 Years of Magic with Mickey, The True Original, in this classic chess set featuring universally known and loved characters from Disney’s timeless franchise! Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck & Daisy Duck, Pete & Goofy, and more stand in familiar positions on the board for one player to overtake their opponent’s pieces, making Mickey The True Original Collector's Chess Set fun to play for beginners and nostalgic for savvy folks!"

Like I said, what isn't there to love about Mickey The True Original Collector's Chess Set! I love the characters USAopoly chose to be the figures for this chess set and I am so happy to see the quality and design which went into making this game. Chess is a classic game and one which helps children learn to learn - and is just a lot of fun. If you only choose one game to add to your family's game collection this Christmas, make it Mickey The True Original Collector's Chess Set.
