This is a three-person chess set. It's not the first 3-person chess set I've posted on Geekologie, but it is the first one that doesn't look like it was made by a novice carpenter. Who knows, maybe you've owned a three-person chess set forever. How do you even play? Is it anything like Chinese checkers? Oh man, I love playing Chinese checkers. You know what the best part is? Winning and getting to put all the marbles in your mouth.
Thanks to pink_towel, who rumor has it started life as a white towel but accidentally got washed with the reds.
