I have a unique chess set that I want to know more about. It's foldable and has weird symbols around the edge, maybe Incan or Aztec. When you open it up there are two sets of pieces, red Spanish and blue Mayan/Aztec/or Incan. Pieces are hard, maybe stone or glass. I have looked on several websites to find it but I never find one that looks identical. (Red knights are men on back of horse, Blue knights are llamas)
I want to know more about it, so if you find anything please tell me.
Please post a pic. I am in Texas and have seen several Azetech type of chess sets in the Mexican markets.
This is the one I have seen most often. The llamas are new to me. Maybe it originates in Peru?
Hahah, everyone and their brother (mostly non chess players in my experience) has one of these sets. They're made of some kind of polished common stone, a huge tourist trap.
@dec LOL true true. On my local Crag'slist, people (non chess players) sell this as "rare" and the prices jump from $30 to $200+. As a kid, I remember one of these sets in the children's section of the downtown public library so they cannot be all that valuable to begin with.
no its not the type of pieces or board athttp://sanantonio.craigslist.org/tag/3046129554.html
i'll try and upload a picture.
this is a similar image that i found off of google.com
It looks close to this but board is different color, pieces are not the same and ^thats not foldable...
The stone/onyx/ marble /whatever pieces and board are sold all over mexico they cost like ten dollars
I own an almost identical set (very same pieces and board [which is foldable by the way] but it's painted differently) which comes from Perù. I dont' know the exact price but it's an economic set.
Its INCA llamas were exclusivly used by the incas not the aztecs or mayans
