I bought some nice Glass chess pieces at a garage.. read yard… sale.. lol
Thought I would post some pics of the the Why Do I? board set up for chess..
I think It sets it off

I posted here ‘cause I wanted to avoid an accusation of reposting the same things twice?
I think that keeping with the theme here I will post pics with shot glasses used as checkers.. lol
Take a piece and take a shot lllooottttssss of fun hey.
Anyone for a game? !!

The glass pieces look sharp on the chess board. I kept thinking about deforming plastic pieces to match the board.

Very nice!! But you have it set up wrong…light, or white, square to player’s right corner, and then Queens on their own respective color. (I used to play a lot!) :-)

He does have queen on her own color if you consider the see through glass to be white.

I think the shot glasses will be more apropos. The game will make more sense after a few lost pieces ;)

Very nice Larry:

A great improvement, but tough to use as a cutting board.

Hi Larry;

I guess with the shape of the board, the pieces can sneak up on each other.

Great looking project.

Very nicely executed!!
