This Credit Card Sized Chess Set Fits in Your Wallet

 |  |  |  April 5, 2018


You have to really love chess if you need to keep a spare chess board and all of its pieces in your back pocket. And it turns out you can do just that with this teensy Credit Card Chess Set designed by Innovo and available via 3D printing service Shapeways. Now you can have a chess game no matter where you are.


It comes in ten different colors and is the size of a credit card. Should you have a chess emergency, just detach the chessmen and get playing. You can tell the players apart because one set of men has holes in the middle, while the others are solid.

So you play your game and then you have all of these lose pieces that you have to shove in your pocket. And guess what? Now it’s no longer a convenient credit card sized thing. Now it’s a real pain in the butt. You can stick it all in a sandwich bag or an Altoids tin or something, but what the hell? Thanks for a product that sucks after the first use. Really appreciate that. This is like paying someone to play chess one time.

But if you have a chess emergency, you do what you have to do.
