A strange thing just happened

Post by Michael Sherwin » Mon Dec 11, 2017 8:18 am

I was searching the internet and ended up at Glaurung Chess. I clicked on BOARD SET UP and just under the section title Right Chess Board Placement there is a picture of a chessboard. I thought that that chessboard looks familiar. Where have I seen one like that before? Then it dawned on me, I made that chessboard 30 years ago. If those dark squares are forest green laminate and the bottom is covered in felt then that is a picture of a chessboard that I made 30 years ago. The boards I made were tournament regulation so those must be jumbo sized pieces.

If it is not a board I made it is a close simile.

Mike
