How is the user experience? - The price tag of $299.95 for this Vertical Chess Set by Hammacher Schlemmer & Co. may put people off, but there’s no doubt this is a novel idea. As Becky Harris commented, I’m not sure if it would be easy to wrap one’s brain around playing a chess game vertically. The wooden chess pieces are exquisite, in rosewood and boxwood. While it is novel and perhaps practical, without the chessboard having to be cleared to make space for anything, I am not sure if I would mount this chess set on my wall, and play a chess game vertically, which may be difficult getting used to.

Thank you for reporting this. Undo

I would look at it in different way... it's like playing a normal 2D chess game on an computer screen, but in real life. lol

Chess has even gone vertical, though I think it might be a little tough to wrap your brain around playing this way at first.
