New Globe Chess Board Takes the Game to Another Level

I happen to love chess.  I think it’s far and away the best board game that measures intelligence.  When I think of chess I actually think of the piano.  You have to wonder how in depth a person’s brain has to be to come up with the concept of a piano.  I mean do you realize how many combinations 88 keys makes?  The progression from one key to the next?  The infinite amount of possibilities?  I feel like chess is the same way.  There are nearly an unlimited amount of combinations in this game and you can create what feels like an unlimited amount of ways to win.

Speaking of chess, I also happen to love chess boards themselves.   While I think some of the slickest boards in the world are made from crystal, gold, and fine wood, I’m also a fan of ones that have a unique look to them. Take the chess board from Big Bang Theory which is an alteration on the 1994 Tri-Dimentional Star Trek chess board.  It just looks awesome.

The latest awesome in chess boards is this “global chess board.” Created by Utah-based product design student Ben Meyers and his father, this chess board shaped like a globe truly takes the game to another level.

Here’s what Ben said on his Youtube page: This is a chess board that I made with my father. It is made out of Walnut, Soft Maple and Jatoba wood. It took several weeks to create and is 100% playable! Each ‘square’ has a magnet embedded in it, as does each chess piece for easy movement of the pieces.
