Do the pieces really get destroyed?

  • I've read the book and in it the the pieces just get dragged off the board not destroyed as in the film. Ztyran 17:50, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
    • I was just about to ask this, the books never mention breaking. Although the book does say that his new set was badly damaged because he wasn't very good--{{SUBST:User:Rod/autosig}} 22:34, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Isn't it "wizard" chess?

I've been looking for references to magical chess, as it were, to find out the correct terminology, and the specific references I found (Book 1, Chapter 12; Book 2, Chapter 11; Book 5, Chapters 24, 31, and 38) all use the phrase "wizard chess" rather than "wizard's chess." I've even tried to check with both the Scholastic and Bloomsbury editions, and it seems pretty consistent.

"Wizard" versus "wizard's" is a rather pedantic, really, but isn't that what this wiki is for? 22:45, March 12, 2011 (UTC)Nancy

Why is Wizard's Chess not known about by Muggles? I mean, it's just like Muggle chess, really... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Thomas246 (talkcontribs).

Because the main difference is that the pieces are enchanted in Wizard's Chess and wizards wouldn't let muggles see the enchanted pieces. -Shorty1982 22:01, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

Captured Chess Pieces

Would it be relevant to mention the pieces that were captured in the chess scene from the first Harry Potter film? Because I've made a list of all the pieces that were captured during the chess scene, and in the order they were captured.

  • Black Pawn
  • White Bishop
  • Black Queen
  • Black Knight
  • Black Pawn
  • Black Bishop
  • White Knight
  • Black Rook
  • Black Knight
  • White King

It's not always easy to tell the black pieces from the white ones due to the lack of light during that scene. But I'm pretty sure my list above is correct. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:38, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

I've gone ahead and revised my information one more time and then added it to the page. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 01:32, December 23, 2014 (UTC)
