Aeroplane Chess is a classic Chinese board game that was popular in Singapore during the 80s. This is our rendition of Aeroplane Chess x The Bad Batch. Featuring Tech as the main character in the middle of the plate, as he has incredible skills with technology and engineering. The plate consists of elements of The Bad Batch like the Clone 99 logo, Galactic Republic logo, Havoc Marauder and some of the weapons that they use. A vintage effect is applied to replicate the print coming off the folded paper of the chess game as well, to bring about a nostalgic impression.
Praetorian Guards: The Perfect Date
For the local themed Chinese New Year edition, this design amalgamates the pull-out Chinese calendar used in Singapore and features The Praetorian Guards along with various elements of Star Wars for the new year of 5 ABY, when the First Order was founded after the fall of the Galactic Empire. The design also mirrors how auspicious vs inauspicious dates are presented on a Chinese calendar.

Using a mixture of patterns like batik, mandala, Chinese and Peranakan to relate to Singapore's diversity where cultures come together.
