There are a lot of reasons why this is not a good business idea but on the other hand there are a lot of reasons why it is a good idea. If you look at the amount of time patrons spend on wifi which also occupies table time I would think chess would offer more spectator interest which could mean more coffee and cake sales. I hope it becomes a part of the coffee house scene it definitely would make me go there more often. Happy Thanks Giving to our American friends
Has anyone been playing with these chess sets yet? Where? What are they like?
See post #13.
They're great! What a great idea! Great coffee! Great chess sets! Awesome!
Where can you buy the chessmen? I'm looking for something that won't break for a 10 year old cousin that's showing much interest in chess.
Does that 10 yr old drink a lot of coffee??
No, but he does have a tendency to break things...
Barnes & Noble sells a plastic set for $15, and a wooden set that's a little more.
This was all just a big add for the SKYN, or whatever, company. The OP has done this sort of thing several times.
Such a long time but it looks like it is finally happening. They will list the locations soon.
If you want silicone chess men XSKN sells them. Here is the link
The carry bag is a transparent case. There is no 2nd guessing what you are carrying with this bag
Very cool, thanks for updating.
I hope all these sets are stolen. I'm asking you, chess.com member, in the name of all that is holy and as an act of rebellion against the corporate coffee monopoly, to stand up against the 1%, send a message to the fascists who run this world, steal these sets.
... stand up against the 1%, send a message to the fascists who run this world, steal these sets.
Yeah, I'm sure that the 1% will really get the message if a few chess sets are stolen from Starbucks. All that stealing sets will do is discourage Starbucks and others from providing them in future.
yup they put some chess sets in the local starbuckles and they got stolen...then you had to ask for them and they dont have any left... Im going to get my coffee somewhere else now
