    my father is from curitiba, Brazil — and we would play together on this beautiful butterfly wing chess board he brought to canada in the 1960's. a couple years ago, as i was writing a chess app for OSX (pChess — available here on chess.com) — i had the idea of photographing his chess board, and using it as the background for an iPad app — the chess meister — with parallax to simulate the optical qualities of the butterfly wings — is now available for the iPad — check it out:

    The butterfly board is gorgeous and pleases both butterfly collectors and chess players but, why are the posts 5 years old?

    Five years old because that is when I posted it on the forum.

    Sadly, mine has degraded a bit. Probably due to the rapid changes in humidity and temperature we see out here in the Piedmont of North Carolina. The wings have started lacking their brilliant shine. Undecided

    I still have vibrant colors on mine it might be because I put a second glass on it and a frame.

    But I don't use it to play on . . . .
