Product Description

Product Description

An exceptional new chess set from those contemporary designers at Umbra Plus. This amazing game is far from your average chess set. Made from solid walnut and maple the board for this chess set is cleverly segregated in its standard colour formation, and each separate square has been made concave to produce a stunningly crafted uneven platform to move the pieces on. The pieces themselves are made from matching Maple and Walnut wood, with a chrome finished bottom. The bottom of each piece has been cleverly designed into a sphere, so when the piece is placed on any part of the board it can freely wobble and move. You will not be able to find a chess set like this anywhere else, or another of the same quality for it's price. A must have for anyone who enjoys the game. Complete set with 1 playing board and 32 pieces. Made by Umbra

Box Contains

1 x Wobble Chess Set Walnut

HASH(0xa0c6cb28) out of 5 stars Wobble chess 7 Jan. 2011
By Jennifer D. Nickerson - Published on Amazon.com
I gave this to my husband as a birthday present. He absolutely loves it. It is one of the main focal points of our living room & he is always bragging about it to anyone who hasn't seen it! It is elegant & classy as well as being extremely well made. Definitely one of the best gifts I have ever given him. He's even teaching me to play so that he can use it more! I can't recommend this enough. It's a bit pricey, but you know that old adage about getting what you pay for...

HASH(0xa0d28d50) out of 5 stars very unique chess set 28 Nov. 2012
By art 87 - Published on Amazon.com

i am only a casual chess player but i saw this at a local mall & marveled at the design. chess is a very static game, on one level boring but having pieces that wiggle & wobble makes the game more enjoyable. there are many fancy chess sets out there, but i now of no other that's kinetic like this one.

i got this at a good deal from Amazon for $200. so i am happy with it. at the local mall, it sold for $300.

HASH(0xa104be40) out of 5 stars Nice chess set and unique 10 July 2015
By David M. Crawford - Published on Amazon.com

Nice chess set and unique. Unfortunately I have had quite a bad experience with it so far. When I received the set a few of the pieces would not sit straight, especially the black king which was almost horizontal due to the non rounded, pointy base. I got in touch with Umbra via e-mail and after they asked for my shipping address and pictures, they are now giving me the run around. The set really looks pretty stupid if the pieces can't stay straight. Because their were multiple, don't be surprised if you get a few defective pieces as well. Very disappointed with Umbra and truthfully the rest of the build quality looks pretty cheep. Don't expect what you see in the pictures.**UPDATE** Umbra sent me a brand new chess set to cover any defective pieces. Thanks Umbra! Changing my score of two stars to four.

HASH(0xa0c6cf00) out of 5 stars Coolest Chess Set of All! 18 May 2015
By James Scott - Published on Amazon.com

This is probably about the only chessboard in existence that can be moved with no pieces falling over. Great design, a delight to look at and a lot of fun to play. I play with both of my kids and they have a lot of fun with it as well. I usually have to tell them to stop playing with pieces that are off the board so I can concentrate.
