The World is Flat

Well, maybe not all of it, but the part that is this chess set certainly is. Here's the skinny:

New Wave Chess & Checkers

New Wave Chess & Checkers is the world's lightest, simplest yet most tenacious game board.

This 8 3⁄4" square board is an inventive breakthrough in play on flat surfaces.

It allows flat game pieces to stand up on the board with a full 3-D effect.

The pieces can't be blown away or shaken out!The pieces move only when you want to move them. Another design innovation allows a checker piece to turn into a king simply by rotating it to show its crown.

New Wave Chess & Checkers is highly portable and can be played anywhere, indoors or outdoors.
What do you think? How would you like to play 5-minute blitz on this thing? What would Ovid make of the checker that morphs into a chess king?
