    My chess board is the best, it has a snakes and ladders board on
    the reverse which also serves as an occasional small table.

    I would imagine pieces carved from sharp cheddar and swiss, placed upon a Black Bomber and parmigiana board might qualify.

    I am about to ~ courtesy of my kind sister in the UK who missed - giftwise - my birthday in 1998, which I reminded her of recently, whilst, coincidentally making a specific implicit rather than explicit suggestion about rectification ~ lay my hands on a set of hardwood chess pieces - that I myself could not afford, but she drives a convertible sports car and she's my sister - weighing 3 kgs with kings that are 16 cm tall and have bases 6 cm wide.

    I had the cheapest hollow plastic chess set, staunton design. I filled the pieces with plaster of paris, stuck in metal discs (slugs) for weight and glued on some felt. A+ chess set!
