Final Fantasy Tactics Chess Board Set

Final Fantasy Tactics Chess Board Set

This is one of those “I’m surprised this doesn’t exist yet” posts, because Final Fantasy Tactics was inspired by chess, so why isn’t there a tie-in chess board?

My thoughts turned to FFT when I saw this neat Super Mario chess set. I managed to resist buying the Mario set, only because I wanted something a little more sophisticated to match my maturity level (hey stop laughing), hence my need for a Tactics-based set.

Like the Mario set, I hope a FFT board would include figurines for all the playing pieces. Each figurine would need a base that identifies their position (Pawn, Knight, Bishop, Rook, etc.), something I think the Mario set definitely lacks.

Note: sorry I didn’t include all 32 pieces in the image, that would’ve taken a few days to illustrate.

  1. Its an awesome idea. I just think that Mario has more fans than Final Fantasy, but I’m sure an angry response will prove me wrong 🙂

    • As a video game franchise, Mario is arguably bigger. However until recently there were a lot more Final Fantasy collectibles, mostly because Square Enix made their own FF toys. A FFT chess board set is definitely in Squenix’s wheelhouse.
