Avid players of this strategy game have grown accustomed to the standard look of its game pieces, so it's quite stimulating to see their transformation in the Micro Planter Chess Set. Not only have the individual figurines been altered in form, they have also been hollowed out in order to hold soil and support the small roots of tiny shrubs.

The XYZ Workshop product is vaguely inspired by the Bauhaus reinterpretation of the logic game pieces, although this version has obviously taken the redesign to the next level. The owner is invited to get gardening with these little flower pots, filling them with small amounts of dirt and sewing seedlings of various herbs. The Micro Planter Chess Set literally brings life to the game.
