It's the classic game that battles wits and the Modern Chess Set by Customatic helps bring the age-old board game into the 21st century with a striking steel design. Each piece is crafted in a cylindrical fashion that does away with the strong differentiating characteristics that other classic sets usually bear.

The set features a thick playing board that perfectly accents the hefty gameplay pieces, of which each is richly chrome colored and crafted from a strong steel alloy. There are two color variations that the Modern Chess Set is available in including ebony and walnut or walnut and ash.

The Modern Chess Set is a fantastically post-modern approach to gaming and while each piece might be faceless, intricate cuttings help to differentiate a king from a pawn. Although great for gaming, the set would looks stunning even as a display piece; what better way to show off a little intellectual prowess.
