Zero Footprint: A Fancy Vertical Chess Set

vertical-chess-set.jpg

Seen here playing with himself in more ways than one, a man contemplates his next move on Hammacher Schlemmer's $300 Vertical Chess Set. In case you couldn't tell, it's a wall-mounted chess set. Sure you could probably make a table-top version out of a heavily modified Connect Four, but let's not kid ourselves: it's not worth investing the time. Besides, you know what's cooler than playing vertical chess? Playing horizontal hide the sausage. Know what I'm saying? I'm saying hide pieces of hotdog in the couch and watch your dog try to get at them.

    Why the hell is his pawn moving so goddamn far? 4 spaces in one move? Nice try asshat.

  • That's actually pretty cool!

  • Erik Hasse

    The enemies gate is down?

    Gotta give the guy who actually makes these for Hammacher Schlemmer some credit:

    Some amazing sets on this sight.

  • Best part about this? The guy isn't confused and thinks he's a woman.

  • Zing.

  • This is almost as cool as the giant vertical chess board during the chess championship in From Russia with Love. Oh wait, no it's not.

  • Tim Volk

    He's playing the Fondled Pawns opening.

  • PacosTaco

    The chess game on the wall is only to distract you from the pocket pool game he's beating you at.

  • First

  • LOL, in more ways than one!
