Came across some interesting chess pieces:


 Salt and Pepper:

 The North and South:


 Hand carved:

 Just love the Bishop!


 Of course you'll need a beautiful board to play on:

And... a bit of history about the game!



  1. Some amusing and interesting stuff there!

  2. Nice video! My best friend from kollage is a Master (yes! lifetime), and gets thoroughly annoyed with chess pieces that are 'non standard'. He would, of course, as he wants to keep his mind on the game.

    I LOVE them!! But I'm not much of a chess player (I like playing with the horsie, though!)

    I am so glad you are back, Chickenmom. Thank you for this and all the rest - and especially that great steam video from last Friday. I want to go there and see it in person!
