This 8-Bit Chess Set is Pixel Perfect

Chess is a fun and challenging game that really makes you use your brain. So too are lots of video games. If you like both of these pastimes as much as I do, then check out this sweet chess set which features pieces that look like 8-bit video game pixel art.

Created by Induku Designs, the set comes with everything you need to play a game on the go, including a folding board, and pieces that hold in place using cut-out notches.

Each board is made from laser-cut and engraved baltic birch plywood, and held together with leather hinges and straps. All the pieces store neatly inside for travel, so you have no excuse for losing any pieces. I really love the laser-engraved pixel patterns on the board and pieces, which give them a nice sense of depth too.

The complete set is available over on Induku’s Etsy shop for just about $55. They’ve got lots of other awesome stuff for sale there too, like this wooden strandbeest model kit.
