Chess Pieces are craftable objects exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign. There are eight different variants, that can be crafted at a Potter's Wheel and are mostly meant for decoration. Nearly all of them are unlocked by giving their respective Sketch to the Potter's Wheel, except for the Bubble Pipe Carving and the Carved Hornucopia, which are always available. Players are able to sculpt Chess Pieces out two Rocks and one Marble or Cut Stone, the chosen material determining the color of the crafted Chess Piece.

Chess Pieces can be carried by players in the chest slot, similar to Suspicious Marble, slowing down their movement speed and preventing them from several inventory actions, such as equipping a hand held item.

The Rook, Knight and Bishop Figures will spawn a corresponding Shadow Piece when hammered down during a New Moon.

Bubble Pipe CarvingEdit

Wilson Portrait
That was never really my thing.

Wilson

Willow Portrait
I prefer smokey fires.

Willow

Wolfgang Portrait
Might be good for lifting!

Wolfgang

Wendy Portrait
A bubble, frozen in time, can never pop.

Wendy

WX-78 Portrait
IT HAS NO PERCEIVABLE PURPOSE

WX-78

Wickerbottom Portrait
I hope this does not have a bad influence on the children.

Wickerbottom

Woodie Portrait
Kitschy. Just how Lucy and I like it.

Woodie

Waxwell Portrait
Ceci n'est pas une pipe. Pity.

Maxwell

Wigfrid Portrait
Tis but a jest.

Wigfrid

Webber Portrait
Bubbles!

Webber



The sculpture depicts a Bubble Pipe which is a toy that acts similarily to a bubble-blowing stick, except it is shaped like a tabacco pipe. The sculpture is possibly a refrence to Markus Raetz's pipe sculpture which can be interpreted as either a tobacco pipe or a shapeless metal blob.

Carved HornucopiaEdit

Wilson Portrait
Makes my stomach rumble just looking at it.

Wilson

Willow Portrait
Ouchhh! I think I chipped a tooth.

Willow

Wolfgang Portrait
Why stone food hurt mouth?

Wolfgang

Wendy Portrait
A cold mockery.

Wendy

WX-78 Portrait
THIS PIECE IS FOR TORTURING HUNGRY FLESHLINGS

WX-78

Wickerbottom Portrait
It is a commonly held belief that art imitates life.

Wickerbottom

Woodie Portrait
Well, I did say I had a hankering for "stone fruit".

Woodie

Waxwell Portrait
This seems cruel.

Maxwell

Wigfrid Portrait
Feasts, feasts, everywhere, and nöt a ham tö eat.

Wigfrid

Webber Portrait
Boy, I wish we could eat it.

Webber



The sculpture depicts a Cornucopia, a horn of plenty which can be depicted as a horn-shaped, hollow bread filled with food. The shape of the horn resembles a Beefalo Horn. The sculpture may be a reference to the fact that a Cornucopia is an over-used example of pottery.

Rook FigureEdit

Wilson Portrait
It's even heavier than it looks.

Wilson

Willow Portrait
That one looks like it could do some damage.

Willow

Wolfgang Portrait
Does not look like castle to Wolfgang.

Wolfgang

Wendy Portrait
A mere minion to something greater.

Wendy

WX-78 Portrait
WHY ARE HUMANS SO COMPELLED TO "DECORATE"?

WX-78

Wickerbottom Portrait
Represents the protective walls of the king's castle.

Wickerbottom

Woodie Portrait
Pfft, tacky.

Woodie

Waxwell Portrait
It's nice, but where's the rust? The exhaust pipes?

Maxwell

Wigfrid Portrait
A castle fit för a queen.

Wigfrid

Webber Portrait
Where's the king of the castle?

Webber



The sculpture depicts a rook (or castle) from the board game Chess. It also bares resemblance to the nose of a Clockwork Rook, which when hammered during a New Moon can spawn a Shadow Version of itself. It may be a refrence to giant chess pieces.

Knight FigureEdit

Wilson Portrait
It's a horse, of course.

Wilson

Willow Portrait
A horse with no butt.

Willow

Wolfgang Portrait
Is good horsey, Wolfgang thinks.

Wolfgang

Wendy Portrait
Oh, if I could ride away into the night.

Wendy

WX-78 Portrait
A METICULOUSLY CRAFTED OBJECT OF OBSOLESCENCE

WX-78

Wickerbottom Portrait
A knight, in service to the king. Or perhaps the queen.

Wickerbottom

Woodie Portrait
I miss horses.

Woodie

Waxwell Portrait
A dreadful lack of accordions.

Maxwell

Wigfrid Portrait
The figure öf a fellöw warriör!

Wigfrid

Webber Portrait
We could sculpt a stallion battalion!

Webber



The sculpture depicts a Knight (or horse) from the board game Chess. It also bares resemblance to the head of a Clockwork Knight, which when hammered during a New Moon can spawn a Shadow Version of itself. It may be a refrence to giant chess pieces.

Bishop FigureEdit

Wilson Portrait
It's a stone bishop.

Wilson

Willow Portrait
Just some dumb bishop piece.

Willow

Wolfgang Portrait
Weak little rock man looks nice.

Wolfgang

Wendy Portrait
A piece, constrained to the board.

Wendy

WX-78 Portrait
A USELESS HUNK OF ROCK WITH NO APPARENT FUNCTION

WX-78

Wickerbottom Portrait
A decorative stone carving of a bishop chess piece.

Wickerbottom

Woodie Portrait
That's not really my sort of thing, eh?

Woodie

Waxwell Portrait
Could use a few more mechanical bits in my opinion.

Maxwell

Wigfrid Portrait
This warriör döes battle in the mind.

Wigfrid

Webber Portrait
We've never seen toys so big.

Webber



The sculpture depicts a bishop (or priest) from the board game Chess. It also bares resemblance to a head of a Clockwork Bishop, which when hammered during a New Moon can spawn a Shadow Version of itself. It may be a refrence to giant chess pieces.

Kingly FigureEdit

Wilson Portrait
Doesn't seem very "kingly" to me.

Wilson

Willow Portrait
I'm not afraid of that guy. He doesn't even have arms!

Willow

Wolfgang Portrait
Looks very not-mighty.

Wolfgang

Wendy Portrait
Alas, the king is but a figurehead, at best.

Wendy

WX-78 Portrait
WHY IS NO ONE ACKNOWLEDGING IT LOOKS LIKE THE FRAIL HUMAN

WX-78

Wickerbottom Portrait
The king is, by all measures, a liability to everyone on the board.

Wickerbottom

Woodie Portrait
Looks like a bit of a hoser.

Woodie

Waxwell Portrait
What a well-dressed figure!

Maxwell

Wigfrid Portrait
Nöt a man fit för battle.

Wigfrid

Webber Portrait
Reminds me of grandpa.

Webber



The sculpture depicts a king from the board game Chess, though it appears more like a suited man. The fact that it has no arms may be a reference to the sculpture Venus de Milo.

Queenly FigureEdit

Wilson Portrait
Hmm... Looks familiar.

Wilson

Willow Portrait
Ewww, she doesn't have a head!

Willow

Wolfgang Portrait
Faceless lady make Wolfgang uncomfortable.

Wolfgang

Wendy Portrait
She holds the true power, here.

Wendy

WX-78 Portrait
I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE AESTHETIC APPEAL

WX-78

Wickerbottom Portrait
In chess, the queen is by far the most strategically formidable.

Wickerbottom

Woodie Portrait
I don't tend to trust anyone without a face. Lucy excluded, of course.

Woodie

Waxwell Portrait
Must everything be about my shortcomings?

Maxwell

Wigfrid Portrait
A Valkyrie's spirit dwells within.

Wigfrid

Webber Portrait
We're sure she's nicer than she looks.

Webber



The sculpture depicts a queen from the board game Chess, though it appears more like a Greek tragedy actor. Its overall style and the fact that it is carrying a mask may be a reference to the Greek Muse of Tragedy, Melpomene.

Pawn FigureEdit

Wilson Portrait
I can relate.

Wilson

Willow Portrait
What sort of peasant doesn't have a torch?!

Willow

Wolfgang Portrait
Little man is wearing little hat!

Wolfgang

Wendy Portrait
We are all but pawns in this game called "life".

Wendy

WX-78 Portrait
SUPERIOR ART DEPICTING A DISPOSABLE UNDERLING

WX-78

Wickerbottom Portrait
Pawns that journey to the seat of power can be quite dangerous.

Wickerbottom

Woodie Portrait
Just a humble peasant, really.

Woodie

Waxwell Portrait
I have no idea what that is.

Maxwell

Wigfrid Portrait
Tis a nöble fööt söldier.

Wigfrid

Webber Portrait
Pawns are just as important as the rest of the pieces.

Prototype Tips Edit

  • Players should only build the Giant Figures when they are certain they will not need their dropped materials later, as they are not given back upon hammering the statues down.

Placeholder Trivia Edit

  • Most Chess Pieces were added in the A Little Fixer Upper update, while the Giant Figures were introduced in an unnamed Bonus Update after the completion of A New Reign
  • The Bubble Pipe Carving, Carved Hornucopia and the Giant Figures are the only Chess Pieces not to be based from the real-life chess game.
  • Based off of character quotes, mostly Maxwell's, one can infer that the Kingly Figure refers to Maxwell, the Queenly figure to Charlie, and the Pawn to all the other playable characters. The other Chess Pieces refer to their respective Clockwork Monsters.
