A sumptuous marble chess board certainly expresses the highbrow nature of the game of logic; however, there is something to be said for the cleverness behind the design of the Nonessentials Chess Set. If you'd like to challenge an opponent's strategy skills away from your mahogany table, this product is optimized for portability.

To begin your tournament, open the folded chessboard and you'll find a jigsaw arrangement of familiar silhouettes. Once you've extracted every one of them from the wooden surface, slot the pairs together to form freestanding chess pieces that take their commonly recognizable forms. Flip the timber square over to reveal the checkered mat for play and go ahead with your game. The Nonessentials Chess Set engages you further by inviting you to put it back together again at the end.
