Due to the recent success of Netflix’s ‘The Queen’s Gambit’, chess has experienced a massive resurgence in popularity – skyrocketing into the top search rankings worldwide. As sales for chessboards continue to reach record numbers, both newcomers and long-time owners of chessboards alike can attest to one particular issue with a traditional chess set which can get quite annoying in the long run (especially if you are the type who plays back-to-back games) – the pieces keep falling off.
Due to the flat wooden surface of a typical chessboard, a windy day or even one little nudge is enough to ruin the entire game as the chess pieces are toppled off their tiles. However, this won’t be a problem anymore with the intelligently designed Umbra Wobble Chess Set.
Steady as It Goes
Crafted with elegant maple and walnut wood plated with a sophisticated chrome detailing, the Umbra Wobble Chess Set is guaranteed to turn heads around with its unorthodox (and International Design Award-winning) concave surface design which allows for more stability for the weighted chess pieces.
True to its name, chess pieces of the set may “wobble” when bumped into, but they will never fall over and mess up your game. The futuristic look and extra-convenient functionality of the Umbra Wobble Chess Set makes it perfect for any location (and occasion) – be it on the center table of your living room or for friendly competitions in the local park.
