Long story short, this here is a vertical chess set. It could end there, but wait! There’s more! Really? With chess being the enduring formative game for nerds and geeks and basically people who fancy themselves intellectuals, it comes as no surprise that this novel take on the humble chess set has gotten Geeky gadgets’ attention.
Also, that sentence upstairs is a criminal example of a run on. Whatever happened to basic punctuation?
Jesting aside, this all wood chess set measures 34×22 and the accompanying product info claims games can stretch for weeks. Maybe, until the separate pieces start to go missing one by one. You really hate this when it happens. If you’re wondering aout the wood, the board itself is cherry veneer while the pieces are cherry wood.
Requiring almost two weeks for delivery upon purchase, this chess set is going to set you back $299.95. Craftmanship never comes cheap, after all.
