Don't know if this has appeared somewhere before- but if you were to design a chess set with the cast, who would you assign to a particular piece? All or a few. I would start with Zapp as the pawn, but that's a personal issue. (Kif too obvious, maybe, and I respect him.)

King= Fry- In that outfit that he wears on the playing card.

Queen= Leela- Ditto.

Bishop= Bender/Flexo- In some sort of Pope Outfit. I say both of them because I think it'd be interesting to have the Bishops be slightly different and that. (Not two whole different characters! Sheesh. Wouldn't that just be confusing?)

Knight= Zapp riding on Felicity. With some sort of cocky grin on his face, of course. OR! Zoidberg riding Fry's sperm. *giggles like a schoolgirl*

Rook= The Planet Express Building would make a very cool one. If they could make it look half-decent...

Pawn= Cubert. 'nuff said.

EDIT: And yes! Welcome to PEEL.   big grin Be sure to read the FAQ, as PEEL is pretty strict compared to many other boards. See the sights, try the veal, and listen to Lampy's every word.

I think I like Y_L_B's idea the best ... with the exception that Fry should be in his Royal Unisex Robe from "My Three Suns", and Leela in a stunning evening gown. 

One thing that sucks about only having six different piece types is that you have to eliminate a lot of characters.  One option would be to have a different character set for Black, to set up some sort of Good v. Evil thing, such as:

Lrrr and Ndnd as the king and queen

Robot Devil as the bishop

Flying brains as the knight, I guess

Mom as the rook

Perhaps the porno-dealing monster as the pawns, or maybe Ignar, or possibly Melllvar (though that would be difficult to do)

I saw a post from earlier this year with some good ideas, like a Robot side. Esoteric stuff. I have seen other novelty sets that use the idea of themes for each color. Or maybe a mix-and-match so the players can decide at gametime. (Lrrr and Ndnd is too perfect.) Niblonians would make great looking, if inappropriate pawns.

A Good vs. Evil theme would be cool. But the King should definately be the Robot Devil, and Mom should be the Queen.
