Iconic New York City Buildings Are The Pieces In This Chess Set – Design You Trust

Iconic New York City Buildings Are The Pieces In This Chess Set

UK based start-up Skyline Chess, has just launched their latest design for a chess set, the New York City Skyline.

Starting out with skyline images of New York City, the designers Ian Flood and Chris Prosser, choose the buildings that they believe would best represent New York and would also be the correct size for a chess piece. Once the building has been decided, it’s then drawn by hand and then in CAD to create the final design.

The team behind Skyline Chess were successful in their first venture, the London Skyline, and by having the New York Skyline set, it can now be played as city vs city.
