M2041 The Moore Contemporary Chess Set
This set was not named contemporary without reason. The Moore Contemporary Chess Set is a perfect example of how far you can deviate from conventions without actually improving the traditional look of chess pieces. The poor attempt to integrate contemporary styles to chess making does not do justice to the wonderful traditional chess pieces that has survived for several centuries. This set is not even worth buying. It is a mediocre rendition of contemporary style. The pieces look like the common depictions of ETs in most movies to date. The Moore Contemporary Chess Set can be good gift to your alien pal if he visits you, but never for earthlings.
