Globe Chess puts an innovative twist on a classic game through introducing a magnetic, spherical chess board that evokes a deeper sense of competition.

This new playing field requires opponents to develop a new intellectual tool set, in order to literally understand the game from a different angle. The artful globe-shaped board is situated atop an elegant wooden base, enabling the piece to serve as a decorative, standalone design, when not in use. During the game, the board can rotate 360 degrees, both vertically and horizontally.

The same rules apply as the classic game, however players are invited to discover new game plays and strategies, elevating the age-old game with a competitive and artful twist.
