Han Solo and Bollux/Blue Max play chess.

Chess was a board game played throughout the galaxy.

A more advanced version known as holochess was derived from the game, and it was most likely related to similar strategy games like dejarik.

The Mon Calamari were noted throughout the galaxy as master chess players. Han Solo had a chess set onboard the Millennium Falcon which he occasionally enjoyed, and he was once beaten soundly at the game by the diminutive droid Blue Max.[1] The Slith known as Sssiii entertained visitors to the Galactic Circus by playing chess.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Chess in the Star Wars galaxy appears to be the same game as chess on the planet Earth. Real world chess also inspired the game of Dejarik.
