This 3D Chess Set Takes the Game to a Whole Other Level

3D chess is one of those things that we see on TV and thought it seems viable, the game hasn't truly been brought to the real world just yet. Now it has though, and it looks every bit as good as it looked on television.

3D chess isn’t as complex in terms of strategy as a three person chess game (which is also apparently a thing) but moves must be calculated differently and involve going up and down the board. This definitely isn’t your average game of chess.

The board itself is 12 inches tall and is made out of lucite with a stainless steel framework for the backbone. The pieces are sturdy but also stylish and altogether the whole set looks very classy. For those who are bored with their basic board, try taking up three and see how much fun it is.
