Playable Gameboard Apparel

Cure Boredom On the Go with a Playable Chess T-Shirt

— October 16, 2012 — Tech
If you ever find yourself bored on a long commute or in the park on a hot summer day, whip out the playable chess t-shirt to kill some time.

Just like a real chess board, the shirt comes with movable pieces and can be secured like the magnetic travel games. You can challenge a friend or even a stranger to play with you if you'd like. And in case there are any interruptions, there's no need to pack away all the pieces like the magnetic games because the pieces of the chess t-shirt are wearable and will stay on unless you rip them off. Simply fold away or zip up your sweater to protect the pieces and off you go.

For those of you who are wondering, the shirt is machine washable but make sure to remove the playing pieces before you do so.
