I have to say the chessboard looks nice. But why they decided to make a Lego
chessboard all smooth on top is beyond me. And no lip around the edge, so don't
try to carry the thing with chessmen on top... Unless you want to build them
again.

Beacause it's not meant to be a chess set. It's a movie scene.

I am sure it is meant to be both.

I think if it were merely a movie scene then there would be a way to attach the
pieces to their starting positions.

The pieces need to move to reenact the scene. While some way to stick the pieces
down would be useful, it would look odd because in the movie, the pieces glide
around the board.

I gotta agree with Bret’s input: movie scene driven, and I like it.

Empirically, I appreciate smoothness in Lego builds. Not a fan of stud exposure
for builds. It’s more of a challenge to create/design Lego builds without it,
but well worth it.

After all, we can’t have it all, though it doesn’t stop us from trying... Just
refrain from moving the build around, or take the pieces off of the board before
doing so

Btw, too many of the recent (Disney) Lego SW set designs seem not to consider
this, and they suck completely, imho of course.
