If you can handle a few rounds of chess, we’re guessing you can string a sentence together. It’s not like Hungry Hungry Hippos where you’re just smashing your fist down like Cro-Magnon Man. It takes some smarts, which is why we figure this Typographic Chess Set is perfect for the design-loving intellectual. Sculpted in the vein of the Champion Gothic typeface, the pieces for this set are laser-cut acrylic letters in place of the standard pieces. The limited edition set (only 50 were made so far) is perfect for any font buff who happens to enjoy pulling off elaborate openings or at least likes to pretend he does.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
