    Cool idea, love it.

    P.S, how would you use it/ play a game with it?

    Oh my god, of course, that is brilliant!! Thanks for posting and thanks to the person you saw it first on.

    Now as Poo mentioned, to play a real game. Would be easy, just have someone make an identical board and move the pieces for one another, I think I may have to do this, and I am up for a game, though I am not very good.

    There is a good reason chess pieces come in black and white. You need unique decorations to avoid mix-ups (e.g the reindeer).

    But with a little bit of tweaking, a good idea that open up for some new neighbour interaction!

    Nice idea, I would have to visit albert2 every so often to see where he moved, go back and move it on my board, and move my own piece

    Though I don't have a board, or the space for one :(

    I see we both used the same queens, knights and rooks. I tried to make the two sides different. But had to go with the reindeer as knights for both. (Other option was gas pump and not the same). I thought about using trees but went with posts for bishops, though admittedly too small.
    The cones work well as pawns too.

    I also like the moat. I have since stuck the elevator in the way. I will have to move it if I find a good spot.

    He has them rotated differently... so there's that for determining which is black or white.

    I see. Still not convinced.
