The Team Fortress 2 Chess is Perfect for Valve Superfans

The Team Fortress 2 Chess Set is easily one of the geekiest gifts you can pick up this holiday season. The game features pieces based off of the cult classic shooting game created by Valve. Although the game has been out quite some time, it still has a loyal following, as evidenced by the creation of the Team Fortress 2 Chess Set.

Just like in the game, this chess set pits red versus blue in a fierce battle. Unlike the game, there are no guns, but there are hats that can be taken off and put onto different pieces. Unlike many custom chess sets recently created, the Team Fortress 2 Chess Set has niche appeal to fans of the series. That being said, this is a niche item done right and one that should please both casual and hardcore fans. The chess set will be available early December and will sell for $119.99. Along with the game board and pieces, those who purchase the chess set will also be given access to in-game downloadable content.
