Everything is very easy to modify, especially the pieces. They are pretty basic, and if you build this you may want to improvise, make them larger, more colorful, etc. My brother suggested that I make a giant chess set and model each piece after a significant 'ibler, with Kiteman being the king, of course. That fell through. Anyway...
Step 1: Piece List
Green - 272
White - 114
Red - 16
Light Grey - 20
Green - 20
Yellow - 12
Purple - 64
Blue - 80
White - 16
For one set of players (you will need two of different color schemes):
Green - 44
White - 22
Light Grey - 12
Red - 9
Green - 9
Yellow - 9
Purple - 16
Step 2: The Top
Notice how the connectors are built in rows. It is important that you make your board identical. Remember the white and green rods on the sides!
1: Build it. Not too hard, just long and monotonous
2: Close up of the side
Step 3: Sides
1: Build this end piece. Nothing special
2: This is what the ends look like
3: Look from the top
4: Now build another one. You'll need one for both ends
5: Build these two side panels. Nothing hard either, just build what you see.
6: Close up of one end. The other side is identical
Step 4: Base
1: Build this big panel. Real easy. Don't forget the rods on the ends.
Step 5: Assembley
1: Connect the two side pieces to one of the end bits
2: Should look like so
3: Add the other end bit on the other side. Now you have a box
4: Put the bottom piece in like so
5: Close up of that connection
6: Now, slap the board on top. Make sure that all the blues are pointing their slots either always at a 45 degree angle up or down. They cannot be side up, then down. then up, etc. Just make sure to put it on as it is in the photo.
7: Close up of one of the corners
Step 6: Playing Pieces
1: Pawns, each team needs eight.
2: Rooks, each team needs two.
3: Knights, each team needs two.
4: Bishops, each team needs two.
5: Queens, each team needs one.
6: Kings, each team needs one.
7: All in all, these are all the pieces that you need.
Step 7: Go Play Chess!
Just in case you just got brainwashed, here are the rules to playing Chess.
