I designed the Martian Chessboard Section so that people could play Martian Chess with three players instead of just two or four. Quickly it was realized that the special shape of the board enabled games of 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 players. Other games that need one quarter of a standard chessboard per player can use these boards as well.
After trying for several years to design a method that would enable me to make durable boards in quantity for resale, I finally hit on the idea of affixing a printed backing to acrylic sheet. I then cut the acrylic to shape and back the board with a stiffened felt product to protect your table top. (Details on the Project Page.)
Out of stock! Sorry, I ran out.
$20.00 for three
Eighth-inch smoky gray acrylic sheet with a felt backing. About 10" long and 8.5" wide.
(Icehouse pyramids not included.)
I can fit up to 4 Martian Chessboard Sections in a single Priority Mail envelope, so shipping for most orders will be $4. Larger orders will require boxing, so shipping may be more expensive. I mailed 10 boards for $7, to give you an idea.
To order, send me email indicating how many you want. I'll reserve these items for you and send you email with your total. I cannot accept credit cards, so you'll need to send me a check or money order of some kind. As soon as your check clears I'll get your items in the mail, usually by Priority Mail.
