Chess can be a stressful game due to its competitive nature and the need to be one step ahead of your component at all times, but the Samurai Chess Set hopes to combat that by introducing a built-in zen garden that is guaranteed to wash away any negative feelings. Although that detail is definitely an eye-catcher, once you fixate your gaze onto the rest of the board, you’ll find that the craftsmanship and creativity doesn’t end there.

Created by Wilkes County, a North Carolina-based wood craftsman, the Samurai Chess Set features classic Asian themes in each piece, which have been intricately carved. Crafted out of walnut and poplar wood, the Samurai Chess Set could even be a play set for children.
