For the Clockwork Monsters themed like chess pieces, see Suspicious Marble.

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 of Marble or Cut Stone, the chosen material determining the color of the crafted Chess Piece, and using two additional Rocks.

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.

A mere minion to something greater.

Placeholder Trivia Edit

  • The Pipe and Hornucopia are the only two 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.
