Tube chess anyone?

Originally from here

This is cool. Have a hard time remembering what tube is what piece – but I could learn to deal with that.

But, if we are going to go to all this trouble, what I want is a manly game of tube chess.

You know using the 833 tube, popularized by WAVAC (photo from positive-feedback):



Or the T1610, used by Kronzilla (photo from 6moons. More good photos of this tube there)


If you think of chess as a game of civilized warfare, if somewhat medieval, then one needs to use hardware that is appropriate to the task. The more massive the better :-/.

Of course, this manly man game of tube chess would have a chess board as big as my office… but that makes it even MORE cool, right? 🙂
