When you think of a luxury chess board with pieces, you may conjure up images of fine crystal pieces with hand detailing and gold trimming with a chessboard made of marble squares. Opulent Items has other thoughts and has released their Wobble Chess Set.
With this chess set, the 15″ by 15″ board is made out of walnut and maple wood but what’s interesting about the board design is each square has a concave space which is quite unique. The reason for this unusual design is the chess pieces themselves, from the King all the way to the lowly low man on the totem pole, the pawn have rounded chrome bottoms that fit securely within each square. With the rounded bottom, the chess pieces are guaranteed not to fall over.
Personally, the pawns look more like bowling pins, but that’s another matter. So what does opulence such as this cost? The price for this chess set is $250 US but if you feel like saving a couple of bucks and have a few used car parts lying around, you may want to follow the steps of these creative souls that created their own metal chess set.
