The Ultimate Chess Pieces Version 3 feature a new appliance white color scheme and an improved weight system that will not come loose and rattle. Does the latest version of this legendary live up to the hype? That’s what I’m going to talk about!
Ultimate Chess Pieces are available online:
The first version of this set was released around 1987 and featured white pieces that were a light yellow / cream color. The set’s overall weight was over 3 pounds making the set an instant hit with blitz and rapid players who loved the ease of handling and stability.
The set was recreated in 2018 by Shelby Lohrman and version 2 featured a 3.75″ king and was notorious for the butter yellow color of the white pieces. Unfortunately the weights on this set would give way and rattle.
Version 3 of this iconic set fixes all these issues and is about as perfect you can get for a plastic chess set. The white pieces are now an appliance white an the weight system has been redesign so they’ll never come loose.
These just might be the ultimate version of the ultimate pieces!
