New Wave Chess & Checkers is the world’s lightest, simplest yet most tenacious game board. This 8″ 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 Chess & Checkers is highly portable and can be played anywhere, indoors or outdoors. “Extreme” chess or checkers can even be played during an earthquake!
