    Hello Everyone. I was watching this youtube clip about Russian Chess and noticed some really cool chess boards at the 2:27 point in this clip. They are the classical green and white, but with Russian cyrillic writing on them. Does anyone know where I can buy one? I tried the Russian chess federation website, but couldn't find an email or contact link.

    My bet is that this writing is merely advertisement for the local distributor of the boards. It might also be 'Property of the Moscow Chess Club' or whoever is sponsoring the event.

    Don't think they are for sale, they said it was a chess museum.
