Whereas the first book has the deck of cards as a theme, this book is loosely based on a game of chess, for which the author provides a list of moves even if the game cannot be carried out legally due to a move where white doesn't move out of check (much as might happen if a seven or eight year old was playing chess).

Recycled characters

The Mad Hatter and the March Hare make an appearance as the Hatta and Haigha.
