Vertical Chess Set turns your board into a playable decoration

Despite having access to tons of modern video games, I still enjoy playing chess now and then. There is something timeless about this rather ancient game that keeps it appealing throughout the ages. These days you can play with virtual opponents on your computer, or even play with someone halfway around the world. With this unique chess board, you can play with someone in your house, without needing for both parties to be present.

This Vertical Chess Set is designed to hang on your wall, much like a painting. There are eight shelves on which your men sit. Yon can then make your move, and set the �last move� marker by your piece. Then, when your opponent walks by, they will see that it is their turn. Sure, you could accomplish the same thing with the right app on your smartphone, but it wouldn’t look nearly as elegant as this. Then again, it also wouldn’t cost you $300.
