What calibre is your chess set?

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

We won't ask you what calibre your chess is but surely how about: What calibre your chess set is?!

Olde World Collectibles and Creations has released a new chess set that is really unique.
It is a bullet chess set of .223 caliber. In place of white and black pieces this set has pieces in steel castings and brass castings. Steel pieces have red oak wooden bases and the brass pieces have black walnut wooden bases. No live shell has been used. The pieces range from 1 ¼ to 2 ½ inches in length. The board is made from a solid piece of red oak. Two brass handles on the side add to the beauty of the board and help in carrying it. It is a beautiful set and significant because a game of chess is a symbolic war between two armies.
