Soap Chess Set: Dirt, Checkmate!

 |  |  |  |  |  March 5, 2012


We’ve seen a chess set made of chalk; here’s another set with pieces that are also consumable but are more durable – a chess set made of soap. You won’t get a stalemate with this fragrant set amirite?

The pieces are life-size – the king is about 3″ tall while the pawns are about 1.75″ tall – so you really can play with them if you want to. There is one caveat though – the pieces have flat backs, a compromise to their soapy side.

You can order a chess soap set from Etsy seller A Breath of French Air for $24 (USD). The sample pieces shown here are black and white, but you can customize the colors and even the scent of your order with fragrances like lavender, lemongrass and green apple. I’m not sure if you can get them to make you a soap chessboard though.
