Chess Sets

November 13, 2009 at 1:12 am 1 comment

A couple of years ago a buddy of mine made his own chess set.  I didn’t have the heart to tell him that the pieces looked kind of strange to me.  However, the set was usable and I’m guessing he still enjoys hours of chess fun on his home made set.  This got me thinking about how people have gotten creative with an item so common as a chess set.  I found some interesting things such as the multi-level chess set seen below and the three-way chess set pictures right after it.  Three players not enough for your party?  Don’t worry since someone already has solved that problem for you with a four-way chess set (pictured third).  Why not just use two boards you ask?  I have the same question so I guess you’ll have to ponder that for yourself and let me know when you’ve thought something up.  Finally, you can leave it to the fine folks that love Star Trek to take board gaming to a whole new level with a multi-layer (and multi-dimensional?) chess board (pictured fourth).  I can not even begin to imagine the complex rules involved with playing on a board like that, but I am willing to try, so anyone with a Star Trek board out there hit me up if your willing to go through hours of frustration teaching me how to play on said board.
