Wooden Marble Game Board 2-Sided Chess on Front Checkers on Back Made in USA
Chess and Checkers are games for many different levels of play, pitting novice against novice or master against master. This game board is made of solid hardwood (Hard Maple and Black Walnut) with the TOP side having glass marbles as the chessmen (16 Red and 16 Black). Each 1" diameter glass marble has a gold imprinted depicting the playing piece it represents. With the fact that all the pieces look similar, because they are 1" glass marbles, one must study the board during a game a little harder so as not to make any mistakes.
On the BOTTOM side, it has Walnut stained and Clear coated Birch Wood Checkers. Each checker is 1-1/4" in diameter. There are 12 checkers of each of the two colors. It has the ability to be an interior decorative piece as well as a game board. The size is 12-1/2" wide and 15" long, with a Hand Rubbed Natural Oil Finish.
There are holes at the forefront of each end for each player to place his captured glass marble playing pieces during play of the game of Chess so they don't roll around and get misplaced. We also include general instructions on how to play both basic games of Chess & Checkers and the final objective of both. This will help only if you have forgotten or need to freshen up on the way certain pieces move on the board for each of the games. They will not teach you how to implement certain strategies nor how to win either one of the games. The glass marbles and the wooden checkers are packaged in velour pouches with double drawstrings to secure them for storage. The pouch has a saying: "SHOOT MARBLES - NOT DRUGS"
For 2 Players: Difficulty: CHESS - medium to very hard; CHECKERS - simple to medium.
The marble size of 1" (25 mm) means the following:
1. More safety around younger children.
2. A plus factor for the elderly, because they are an easier size to pick up with arthritic hands.
3. The bright colors of the larger sized marbles assist with poor vision associated with the elderly.
The Wooden Checks ar 1-1/4" in diameter:
1. These are also easy for the elderly to pick up and maneuver.
2. They have a non-toxic finish on them.
