Photo: Smithsonian Chess Set

This chess set was at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. I didn't catch who this originally belonged to, but it was neat to see how different this looked to more modern chess pieces. Chess has proved to be a game that will survive the ages.

  1. I agree. Chess will be with us forever. I like it but it's a bit too serious for me.

  2. Cool chess set, Adam. I used to play chess a lot, but I haven't done so in ages. I wish Terry were more into games like that. I have two chess sets, one I bought in Spain for my father over 40 years ago, and one made by the wife of one of my geology professor's wife. All the best to you!

  3. That's a neat chess set. I had a professor teach me chess a long time ago. I'm still not great at it.

  5. That's an interesting style. The kings & queens look like robots.
