Typographical Chess Set
A whimsical spin for people who know which chess pieces are which, and vital information for people like me who don't. Typographical kings, queens, knights, rooks, pawns, and...wait...what's the other one? Please hold while I Wikipedia chess.

As with all 3D-printed wares from Shapeways, the chess set is available in over a dozen materials of varying prices. Sandstone, the least expensive, runs around $85, while the opposite end of the pricing spectrum, gold-plated, will set buyers back over $700.
