Wonder what is the name of the chess game they played in Naruto?

Naruto Chess

naruto chess shikamaru shibaNaruto Chess – is a way of playing a chess game but with figures that are equivalent to naruto characters (scroll down to see a sample naruto figures).

You can then feel like your favourite anime character and fight like they would do in the anime, but on the chessboard with your friend. There’s even sets available online – check below list where we’ve listed some good ones (and ranked them by popularity).

Naruto Chess Pieces

Although you can find some actual naruto themed chess sets ( read on to check them out) – most of what is available will be naruto chess figures – with no board.

Naruto Action Figures

Not entirely sure why these are called chess, but they are one of the closest things to what you can call a naruto chess set. There are different pieces, 6 in each collection from Megahouse. 

The Naruto chess piece is a great way to show your love for this iconic anime series.

The pieces are accurate and detailed, just like in the show!

you have Naruto, Sakura and Kakashi on one side, and Sasuke, Gaara, Shikamaru on the other side, guessing Naruto would go as a White King, and Sasuke Uchiha for Black King. Rest is up to your imagination 😀

Kakashi and Naruto Pieces

These 2 pieces also are called naruto Chess Piece Set – can get them on amazon from megahouse although might be better to consider purchasing the option with 6 figures – its much cheaper.  

Random Naruto Figures

Similarly as above, not necessarily a chess set, but with some creativity could be used as such 😀 

12 figures (2x Naruto, 2x Madara, 2x Gaara, Sasuke, Sakura, Hinata, Jiraya, Kakashi and Tayuya? each with black stand, find a compatible chess board and you’re good to go.

There is a happy pawn chess shop in Thailand where they supposedly sell these 😀 need to get in touch to see how much that costs, they also have other Anime Chess Sets in a form of lego chess.

Naruto Full Chess Set

Seems like one of the few sets that could be classified as full chess set based off Naruto.

Board has got some Naruto imagery, ( Naruto and Kakashi)  pieces seems standard , painted in naruto themed runes.  

Being sold from Kazakhstan and says drop shipped – guess proceed with caution.  

Handmade Boruto Chess

Same as above, handmade fan version of chess set from g4sky. 

The Chess Board has got some Boruto images on.

The board and the figures are made of wood. Hand-painted.

Board size – 29*29*4 cm.

Being sold from Kazakhstan and says drop shipped – guess proceed with caution.  

Other Naruto Chess Sets

These are just images of chess sets, couldn’t find any place where you can actually purchase any. 

Chess in Anime - Naruto

Wondered what is the name of the game Shikamaru played with his father and Asuma? in the Anime Naruto? It is Japanese version of Chess called Shogi.

Which is harder Shogi or Chess?

Shogi in some sense is like chess , its being called a japanese version of chess. Shogi is considered much more complex than chess. Main difference is that you can re-enter the pieces that have been captured before, and put them almost everywhere on the board. Shogi has many more pieces than chess too

How to play Shogi?

A small note here, they do not necessarily play chess In Naruto. They play the Japanese alternative of chess – Shogi. Based on skills or presumed skills in playing shogi – fans have created a list of top candidates for Chess Master

Naruto Chess Players in Real World?

How many Chess masters do we have in Naruto? Well, it turns out the answer is actually…a lot!
