Star Trek Tri-Dimensional Chess Set

Chess has been basically the same for the past 500 years, but somebody on the Star Trek staff decided it needed to evolve to translate into future. And we’re okay with that, because Star Trek gave us something that looks really striking: tridimensional chess. The Franklin Mint has reprised their 90s creation with this 50th Anniversary Tridimensional Chess Set. This set, over a foot tall when fully assembled, features 7 acrylic playing boards and 32 silver or gold plated chess pieces. It comes with a rules booklet, but even if you don’t play, it looks pretty awesome displayed on a shelf, just waiting for someone to comment on it. Of course, if you don’t play, owning this chess set is a reason to learn if we ever heard one. We can find no other logical alternative.
