Unreal Style Chess Set
I found myself stuck in a rut. Everything I built turned into a transformer. So I built this chess set. The most fun is playing chess on this board with my five year old son. I wanted the set to have a arena feel to it. The slope to the board I think helps with that. Each side has their own color just like capture the flag maps in Unreal. The grills add a kind of industrial feel to the playing field.

Oh and for fun I also made a set of checkers for it.

Huh, I could have sworn I had commented on this prior, my apologies for not doing so sooner. This is really nicely done, and I like the storage aspect, that really adds to the value of the MOC. Nice work on this, by the way what have you been up to as of late?

What did you find here, Garth? (Garth and I crossing paths again...probably because I'm up too early and he's up too late!) Tim, we see quite a few Chess Sets come through here...but this one is exceptional! It's colorful, small, and elegant. Love the tapered border on the board, and the pieces are truly ingenious. Splendid work!

Just to let you know, Tim... Our Friend Topsy there posted a Chess Set here a few months ago that was incredible. I see he's mentioned it in his comment (Hi, Topsy!), but everyone's got to see this one- http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/169177 The two last photos of the "Funeral" are a riot!

My favorite bit are pieces. Great work here, Tim! Though I won't deny that I like the one I built a while ago more, this definitely a close second when it comes to originality and creativity. Good day

This is a very cool set. I wanted to do a box like that for mine, but haven't yet. I can't wait to teach my son how to play.
