Chess is a two-player strategy board game with two opponents, called Black and White from the color of their moved pieces. It’s played on a checkered gameboard with 64 squares of two contrasting colors alternating each box, on which there are 32 pieces at the game start, sixteen each color: a king, a queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, eight pawns. The objective is to checkmate the opponent’s king by placing it under an inescapable threat of capture.

First of all a fascinating design, full of decorations spanning from renaissance to baroque style, with a lot of other artistic styles of the past. You can see geometrical figures in ancient roman style, like acanthus leaves of classical age, and other decorations typical of rococo and baroque. All of the elements finely blended to create two unique chess teams.

Why 3d?

If you already own a 3D printer, it’s both cheap and enjoyable, you’ll be able to print unique pieces of the most fine quality
If you don’t own a 3D printer, it could be the opportunity to buy one, the costs of 3D printers are getting lower day by day. Alternatively you can usa a service like :3d hub, shapeways or a lot of others that are crowding the net. Or even going to a FabLab or similar, where you can meet to print together.
