Uncommon Goods has an interesting chess-set for sale here.  It doesn't include a board, but you can draw your own, using one of the white Bishops perhaps...

 

 



Honestly, I can't see parting with $20 for a set this disposable.  Also, can you imagine what your chess bag would look like after a few days?  ;-)

On the other hand, it might be fun chipping one of my opponent's Bishops down to a pawn when he isn't looking.  According to the site, the set is especially meant to appeal to kids, which makes sense.

When it comes to my own kid, I think this set just might be under the tree this year:

Heck, it's only $10 more than the chalk one and every bit as outdoor-friendly.
