Dave’s Cool Toy of the Day: Chalk Chess

Chalk Chess

This is the coolest chess set I’ve ever seen.

It’s a basic, standard chess set, except that it’s made of chalk. Want to play a game of chess on the street? Just take out your chess pieces, and draw a chess board on the sidewalk and set up a game.

Both the white and black pieces are made of chalk, so you can draw with either black or white on most any surface that chalk works on.

Of course, you could just buy a plastic chess set and bring some chalk along. But this is WAY cooler. And it’s a great gift for a chess enthusiast.

But what happens when the pieces start to wear down and your queen is falling over because she doesn’t have a good base anymore? Or your pawn is reduced to a nubbin? At just $20 for the set, it’s enough of a bargain that you can order another and replace the pieces as they wear down.

Chalk Chess in action. How exciting!
