GOBANG WITHOUT CHESS / GOBANG WITHOUT CHESS

GOBANG WITHOUT CHESS
GOBANG WITHOUT CHESS

our design is a new kind of Gomoku without real pieces,which change the status of the
separation of pieces from chessboard.It mainly consists of three parts,namely base,
switch and chessboard.Chessboard is built-in and can expand automatically when
pressing the button.To achieve the same funtion with normal Gomokuin,we geniously
utilize the material property of chessbord which is made up from elastic and lithe material.
When players press gently on the board using their fingers,an indentation will appear.
In this way,player can visually see the distribution of pieces without fear of the slide of
real pieces.It's an elaborate design
