Our smartphones have made chess a game that no longer requires adversaries sit opposite each other at a table. We find this good and bad. It’s good because you can always get a game, anytime, anywhere. It’s bad because, well, we miss the one-on-one interaction and the tactically pleasing moves around a real board. The Square Off Chess Set is the ideal middle ground. Not only is it a physical board that allows you to play a standard game of chess with the person sitting across from you, but it allows you to play against someone anywhere in the world. How? They either use an app or a board of their own and the Square Off Chess Set will make their moves on the board in front of you like magic. No more 2D garbage. No more missing out on the satisfaction of removing their queen. You can also play against an AI with 20 different levels of difficulty, so you can go from novice to master with a 2200 rating.
