Best Lego Chess Sets – my 4 Picks

by Last Updated: Mar 11, 2023All Legos, Featured

The popularity of both Lego and chess increased during the pandemic, as people were spending more and more time trapped at their homes. Many people were looking for ways to have a good time at home and for something to play with. Even adults became interested in building Legos. The proof of this is that Lego sells many models that are designed for adults as well. Moreover, the Netflix series Queen’s Gambit (YouTube trailer here) has almost doubled the worldwide interest in chess generally. Taking all these facts into account, in this article, I have decided to briefly review the top Lego chess sets for sale that you can buy. Also, before I get started, you might like to consider checking out my other website where I blog about chess sets. I have some guides on it on how to play chess or how to choose the right chess board for you too.

1. Lego Iconic Chess Set 40174


Lego Chess Set


The first Lego chess set on my list is a classical Lego chess board. It includes buildable playing pieces and a buildable chessboard. The pieces can also be stored inside the board, so you can take it with you when traveling. It can be used to play checkers as well. The dimensions of the board are 10 inches (26 cm) square and the whole set contains 1,400 bricks. In case you like Legos and are an avid chess player, this is an ideal Lego set for you.

2. Lego Hogwarts Wizard Chess 76392


Lego Harry Potter Chess


If you like Harry Potter and you are a chess fan too, this Lego building kit would be an ideal option for you. It comes with 32 chess pieces (like a standard chess set) and includes 4 extra minifigures as well; Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and a golden Severus Snape, which is an exclusive minifigure that commemorates the 20th anniversary of Lego Harry Potter. The board’s measures are 10.5 inches (27 cm) square and the pieces are 3 inches (8 cm) tall. This Lego Harry Potter chess set is ideal for children of the ages 10+.

3. Lego Pirates Chess Set 40158


Lego Pirates Chess Set


The third Lego chess game on my list is the Lego Pirates chess set. The playing pieces include Bluecoats and pirates. It comes with 20 minifigures that include accessories and assorted weapons. The playing board’s dimensions are 9 inches (25 cm) in width and 14 inches (38 cm) in length. This building kit is also suitable for younger children, as it is recommended for ages 7 and up. So, if you want to teach chess to your young kids, this set could be a fun way to do so.

4. Lego Kingdoms Chess Set 853373


Lego Chess Board - Kingdoms


The last Lego chess model on my list is also the oldest Lego set on this list. Its main features include a storage box, it contains 28 minifigures with assorted accessories and weapons. In case you do not like any of the 3 other options mentioned above, this Lego kit might be a good alternative for you. The dimensions of the playing board are 13.5 inches (34 cm).


I hope you have managed to choose your favorite Lego chess game from this list. Finally, I would also like to say that if you have good creativity and a bunch of spare Lego bricks (maybe from another older Lego sets that you have bought), you might like to try building your own custom Lego chessboard as well. Maybe you will build something nice and will enjoy playing the chess game with it.
