More Birds from Blade Runner

A few months ago, in the ongoing series Top eBay Chess Items by Price, I featured a set of British Birds from Blade Runner. Now here's an excerpt from the film showing the same chess set.

Blade Runner On Chess (2:35) • 'Chess clip appears in "Blade Runner" (June 1982) [...]'

'[...] about a dystopian Los Angeles in November 2019 in which genetically engineered replicants are hunted down and "retired" by police special operatives known as "Blade Runners".'

The game in Blade Runner is a replication of the Immortal Game. It's symbolic: The quest for more life is one of the themes of the film.
