Shogun 2 Collector's Ed has chess set

Japanese pawn.

Forget night vision goggles, forget remote controlled cars - strategy games have chess sets.

Yes, the Collector's Edition of Total War: Shogun 2 comes with a chess set made out of bamboo.

We already knew there was a bamboo box on offer but a chess set? That's news to us.

Each of the little pieces has been carved to resemble iconic feudal Japanese imagery. The rook, for instance, resembles a Japanese pagoda. There's also a samurai figurine, a man on horseback, what could be an assassin, a Geisha and a footsoldier.

Yours for £80, or £69.99 if you order at GAME.
