It’s mostly a symbolic gesture, but you can forget about dodging an embarrassing checkmate by toppling your king with this Wobble Chess Set. Like Hasbro’s Weeble toys, all the pieces in this set have weighted rounded bottoms so they’ll wobble back and forth but never fall over.
The board itself is rather unique too, made from cherry and maple wood the individual squares are all concave so you can’t use regular chess pieces with it even if you wanted to. It’s a unique design for sure, but unique enough to warrant a $US250 price tag? Probably not. [Uncommon Goods]
