  10. I’ve never been a big chess player but I’ve seen some boards I’d love to have. As impractical as it is, I like the gold and silver one inch set. I also actually like the amber pieces — if I could just replace the bugs! I made a really pretty ceramic chess set back in the 80s. Wish I still had it.

  11. It comes in a pretty cool tin box which can be used as a chess board. Not too bad. The pieces are plastic but well painted. I guess it’s of average quality. Nothing too fancy but as you know, chess sets can get pretty fancy. I doubt I paid more than $25 US for this set.

  12. That bullion set would add a whole new dimension to “Take my queen—I dare you!”
    To pay for it I’d have to pawn it first, Mate (and I get rooked every time by those guys).
    What does ‘The Little Book of Etiquette’ say about frisking guests before they leave …

  13. I don’t think I’d be able to pick just 10 overwhelmingly cute pictures of cats, lol. Or 10 rocking chess sets. You are very good at what you do 🙂

  14. I went through a stage where I just kept buying chess sets. I had entirely too many…this post is dangerous for my wallet. Love the blue LED one. Too bad they don’t have a cheap man’s plastic version. The Mario one is a close second for me, though. =)

  15. yeah chain one is cool and love the Simpsons! and i am in no way able to comprehend chess, i suck at checkers too, but hey, i’d be willing to try the shot glass one because my opponent would be drunk off his gourd halfway through and then maybe i’d have a “shot” at actually winning, lol!

Which one did you like?
