New Wave Chess


So sure - it’s a chess board made of corrugated cardboard, with some box-ties to hold your pieces after they’ve fallen - but you have to admit, it’s a pretty ill idea [and hells yeah I put this under DIY - it’s cardboard! just make one yourself].

New Wave Chess & Checkers is the world’s lightest, simplest yet most tenacious game board. This 8 3aA"4a€A square board is an inventive breakthrough in play on flat surfaces.

It allows flat game pieces to stand up on the board with a full 3-D effect. The pieces can’t be blown away or shaken out! The pieces move only when you want to move them. Another design innovation allows a checker piece to turn into a king simply by rotating it to show its crown.

New Wave tm Chess & Checkers is highly portable and can be played anywhere, indoors or outdoors. a€oeExtremea€A chess or checkers can even be played during an earthquake!

You can stop the game, travel with it or store it without fear that the position of the pieces will be disturbed.

  1. This is a model of elegant and economical design. To criticize it by saying one can make it oneself is like saying one can make paper clips by bending wire or make chopsticks by whittling wood or bamboo.

  2. Ima haveta disagree with that last comment. I could make one of those myself after half a shift a Denny’s. It’s pretty sweet though.
