The Wine Glass Chess Set may be the smartest way to get a little tipsy, in a classy way of course. Unlike the Jack Daniels chess set, which doesn't even allow the players to drink any of the famous whisky, this design encourages people to take refreshing sips of red or white wine in between moves, depending on which side of the board they are on.

Created by Anders Nordby, an artist based in Oslo, Norway, the Wine Glass Chess Set is currently on display during the Queen's Gambit Declined exhibition at the Standard Gallery. Wine glasses in varying sizes, each of which stands for a particular piece, is set on a mirrored chess board.
