It has been quiet on this post.
Maybe the mystery could be a book or a movie! Start writing.
I also had to replace the back board which was not flat and bent. I removed it from the frame and found that the butterfly wings are pasted onto the glass. So if the glass breaks then the art chess board would be gone forever.
I took it to a glass shop and the owner who I have know for thirty years spent an hour talking and cutting another glass to protect the original. Making sure that it would last. I also purchased 1/8" finished veneer for the back. Refinished the frame and now It hangs on the living room wall. I can take it down and lay it on a table to use and play on it.
I wonder which of my four sons or six grandchildren will inherit this chess board?
Those are real butterfly wings? Poor butterflies.
I went to your profile. I can see the board and the flourencent white squares. I see the frame is thicker, rounder and almost the same color as mine.
I can see white has taken four pawns on the queen side. White has castled. Were you playing someone? Who won?
Take some photos and post them. I enlarged your photo to be able to see it better.
Looks like a fabricated position to me :-P
I don't know but if he was using something like the Evans gambit then he would give away three of the pawns in the opening.
His black bishop could have gone to g5 and backed up to h4.
It is too hard to see the line of pawns in front of the castled king.
It's all speculation.
Of course it is speculation, but when I look at the left side of the board, I see an awful lot of black pieces in white's camp. Looks like white is being totally crushed into the bottom right corner of the board and black is dominating the rest. Looks to me like there is nothing left the think about.

For some reason the bar that has the font size, chess board, font color, got turned off when you have the compatibility on. Lets just say the Win8 Dev Version is still a little clunky. I will try getting pics soon.
Hmmm.. Still waiting for your input.
