Straight Up Chess Boards Make For Very Long Games

By Luke Anderson

My high school, like most others, had a chess club. It wasn’t much of a club, just a collection of people playing chess in an empty classroom every Wednesday during lunch. I stopped in every now and then, so I guess that made me a member. I honestly don’t have the time to dedicate to the game anymore, however, with one of these Straight Up Chess Boards, everyone has time to play.

I’ll admit that when I first saw this, I found it ridiculous. However, the thought of only making a move when you walk by a certain part of the house is intriguing. Just be polite and actually make a move when you go past it. Otherwise, that’ll lead to some sort of violence. And when you get violent over a chess game, that’s just sad. These sets can be customized with a variety of different woods and frames, but they start out at $100 each.
