One / Chess


One is a kind of new styled chess with ultra-thin structure. The pieces are inserted in the black grooves of the chessboard. Cut the connection to take out the pieces, and bend the supported structure to become three-dimensional shape. The black and white color board constitutes a chessboard of the chess. After finishing, this could also restore the integration of storage in the groove. This way not only greatly simplifies the volume of the chess, which is convenient to store and transport, in the meanwhile, but also adapts to play in a variety of environments.
