This is my favourite Interplay game. It had humour, it had depth, and it had what was at the time the most well animated 2D characters we’d seen in video games. The different combinations of character interactions made chess fun for everyone and it was a real treat to see the cute little touches put into every character. Plus it had Monty Python references, which was an easy way to win over a crowd of nerds.

(We didn’t really have geeks back then, we were all just nerds)
