Taliban Chess Set Fights U.S. Army In This Weird Version Of The Game

Posted: Updated:

Frustrated with the war on terror? Think you could do a better job? Thanks to a Canadian toy company, you're free to give it a go.

The company, Hedwig & Sergeant Major, produces a chess set whose pieces are modeled after members of the Taliban and the U.S., Canadian or British armies. But as Time points out, the game has little correlation to real life, as the Taliban's king piece is represented by none other than Osama Bin Laden.

Other notable figures include President Obama, a suicide bomber and the Twin Towers. For any neo-conservative chess fans, Obama can be swapped for former President George W. Bush.

This quirky twist on a classic can be yours for $250. Good luck finding someone to play on the Taliban team, though.
