It’s not the craziest idea for chess to be the basis of a musical (Noting that The Queen’s Gambit isn’t really about chess) as it was done before by ABBA alumni Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus.

It produced the hit, One Night In Bangkok, which is a bit of a bureau favourite.

Thinking a couple of moves ahead, this oak made set is battle ready for a game of chess as well as making a fetching addition to any game lovers’ wall.

The board includes a special marker so that the players know whose turn it is.
