Description from the packaging.

Welcome to the chess game of tomorrow.

Yesteryears classic is now a game for all ages in Battle Chess 4000. In this box, you'll find that the traditional chess game has rushed headlong in to the future.

Moving across a translucent chess board set in a futuristic, deep space station, chess pieces become space age characters, created from state-of-the-art, digitized clay models. And the moves they make will keep you in stitches.
