Top 10 Nerdy and Unusual Checkers Sets

While I do love a nice game of chess (as can tell in my previous post “Top 10 Best Chess Sets“) I have to admit that I enjoy the faster paced “Draughts” just as much. And I would not feel right if I didn’t give the humble game of international checkers just as much attention…

I am sure a lot of you might disagree with me, but I think this checkers set made from 12 gauge shotgun shells is very creative indeed and good spin on the design of the game. The board its self is a solid piece of Red Oak with natural worm holes! Creative, cool looking and considering how much of it is hand-made rather cheap as well!

Pirates vs. ninjas are one of those age-old battles that are a big budget Disney film just waiting to happen.
