I love me a good game, any kind of board game or card game. I’m not very good at Chess though, but I’d like to be. But I’m not sure that I have the patience for it. But I love this idea of having an ongoing chess game that doesn’t take up any table space. You can just pass by and make your move and you opponebt do the same when ever they have the time. It’s cool!
The board is made from cherry veneer, alternately stained and left in its natural color to produce the 3 1/4″ H x 2″ W black and white spaces. Eight transparent acrylic shelves support its set of classic Staunton chess pieces. The black pieces are made from rosewood, known for its darkly veined grain and stout heft; the white pieces are made from boxwood, selected for its fine grain and high density–all are turned by hand and finished with a durable, high-gloss cover coat.
