Ugly Chess Sets

Matt, post a pic of the whole set. What is the size?

I have a small train group of 5y children. One mother wants help me and she bought several Chupa Chup Chess Sets. It was really impossible to play chess with these.

Creepy Knights. I collect all different types of sets.

Ok, I saw this one while looking at The Chess Store website has to be a candidate for one of the ugliest chess sets ever made.  I'm just not sure which is ugliest, the actual set or the asking price of nearly THREE GRAND USD!

Which is uglier this set or the price of the set?

Brilliant! When she collected her child did she check that you were indeed using these sets?

Sounds like something out of a sit-com

I suppose there are people who collect such things. Personally, I'd rather have a loaf of moldy bread on the shelf. At least the bread would change over time. Maybe even 360 moldy loaves.

It would be a mug's game with that set IMO, you'd never get your money back if you sold it on.

Yellow & Brown are good. So is Yellow & Black.

Black & White thumbdown.png White in general is too bright of a color and blends way too much on tournament roll up boards.
