    I tried it and couldn't get any of the pieces to move.

    And of course, the Texas Tech MEMS guys got the board incorrectly rotated 90 degrees. They could have at least run this past Susan Polgar.

    My local Walmart has started placing associates in every section of the store, and when one asks them for the location of an item, they direct you to the associate in that area.

    Recently I asked if they had any really small chess sets, and one of them said "You need Lewis!" and then directed me to the... aisle of Lewis.

    It was small, but I'm not sure it's really a chess set...
