I found this really weird chess set at a thrift store. Does anyone know where it’s from? (I bought it because, obviously). enter image description here enter image description here

    If you really want to play chess, I suggest that you orient the board correctly : the lower-right hand corner square should be a light square, not a dark one. Not doing so would invert the positions of the queens and the kings... Jan 13 '21 at 15:08
  • @RobertMiller hmm. I didn’t know that. Thanks Jan 13 '21 at 17:53

    But note that Umbra either considers Blue to be white and Green to be black or don't know the rules of chess, either. The packaging shows blue on the right (and it's sown more clearly on the back). Jan 15 '21 at 13:10

    @L.ScottJohnson : That is terribly confusing. However, in that case, the pieces on their packaging are correctly set up. Jan 15 '21 at 17:05

It's a "playmate" chess set by Umbra. UPC: 028295167055
