Chess in gimkit

Is there a way to make chess in gimkit with props as the pieces and stuff?
I have been really interested in making a chess minigame in my 3 lives map

I suppose this might be impossible, but if not, it may take a whole lot of memory.

If for some reason you do decide to take on chess, here are some ideas:

Chess is still very hard. I would call myself advanced, but I would never do that. Checkers has a pattern, so once Monopoly is done that is my goal.

Ok you know its really not that hard to simulate every position on the chessboard.
You just have to have a prop for each peice and each square, and turn them on and off.

propbably the most compressed way to store the board would be with Number Encoded Data strings. This would require 16 properties.

Store each peice as a number between 1 and 12 (all possible peices, with white and black) and store each row in two properties with this:
