Aztec Chess Set

Aztec chess set pieces will have design and decoration representative of Mexico and Central America. Aztec chess set pieces generally depict the conflict between the Aztecs and the Spanish Conquistadors. Cortez leads the Spanish and Montezuma leads the Aztecs. This is a great set that can be used as a decoration in a home with Spanish. Mexican, or Western motif. Aztec chess set can have various types of pieces but it's not uncommon for them to be made out of stone which provides for a heavier set

The Aztec people lived in Mexico where their core was in the valley of Mexico during the 13th century. After the fall of the Aztec empire and it's robust social influence, the Spanish created a colony on their capital city on what was to be known as Mexico City. Though the Aztec people seem to have vanished, their legacy remains in the form of their artwork, architecture, and the items they have left behind.

Today we have modeled several chess sets after the Aztec empire's architecture, and considering the exclusive nature of chess, this is actually quite an honor. Can you imagine having part of your culture preserved in time through one of the most popular games of the ages? With the Aztec style chessboard, this is reality!

Regardless of who you are or what your style might be, there is a chessboard out there for you.
