Just thought it would be interesting to see what piece and board styles different members use on the site.
I use a modern pieces on a green board...
This is on my android but I use the same on the site.
...show off :)
Classic or Alpha on plain gray/white squares.
Club or Classic on plain gray/white squares. Blue or green would be OK, but it too much color on it - must be much more washed out.
No offense, but I assure you cca. + 150 rating improvement if you change your pieces into something legible.

I will greatly appreciate if you explain why is that so?
It is just matter of taste, pal.
To me Modern styly in 1st topic really ugly.
BTW can anybody explain to me: why all pieces has flat bottom line but King and Queen has ellipse? It is just not right. Only Omega set has right pictures.
thats weird i never thought about it, you really need to be chess player @ sergey...
It is just because I am a drafter and it is difficult for me to see this incorrectness
BTW - modern style is correct in this aspect.
More 'fun' modes would be nice:
That's awesome! Can you tell me what the symbols for the king and queen are?
Thanks! I always imagine the queen as a deadly assassin, for the king I used an 'asbergo' logo....seemed to fit!
I use the current default set, but will enjoy setting up a new set when I buy a membership.
Large, Alpha, Brown.
