We’re quite busy with the holiday season right now, so I don’t have a lot of time to talk. That being said, one of the other things I like to do – especially when i want to unwind – is play Dragon Age: Inquisition.
What does that have to do with chess sets and a chess store, you might ask?
While you’re out adventuring in the game, your NPC (non playing character) teammates will banter about with each other. You can have different folks on your mission, but if you have two of the NPC characters together – a big warrior type named Iron Bull and a mage named Solas, they will start to play a chess game in their heads.
It actually takes place over several scenes as they go back and forth. I’ve posted a link to a video. Does it seem familiar? It should! It’s one of the most famous chess matches in history!
In any case, kudos to Dragon Age for such a great little chess easter egg!
