      Hello Othercat, i enjoyed all of your chess articles but unfortunately you tailor this one at me, despite the fact that I love chocolate. I do have several sets, but I get the most fun by playing with a Simpson's set against my grandson. Excellent writing on all the chess lenses!

      I know my Grandpa would have loved this ... he had a chess set down the basement of his Cleveland, Ohio home ... along with a custom made checker board.

      Great selection of sets for the thinking man's connoisseur of boards.

      Great selection--but what about a Grandpa who plays chess on-line?
