GLOBE CHESS BOARD by Ben Myers



This spherical chess board allows two teams to play against each other in a rather strangely warped, yet exciting planet-ish dimension.


Design student Ben Meyers began working on this project with his father in their garage. Each wooden segment on the globe contains a magnet underneath it, holding the chess pieces in place.This beautiful set uses walnut, maple, and Jatoba wood with magnets embedded in the squares and pieces, and adds a whole new aspect to the venerable pastime.
