This Stunning Chess Set Features Iconic Skylines From Around The World

Have you ever played chess before? Many of us can say that we have played at least once, but oftentimes, it ends there.

As an over-thinker, it just stresses me out. What move do I really want to make? What if I make the wrong one?

Quite frankly, chess ultimately gets a bad rap for being a major snoozefest. Don't come for me!

If I had a chess set like this, I might be more enthusiastic to play the board game!

Players have the choice to either play one skyline against its own or have different skylines go head to head to see whose skyline really reigns supreme.

The sets are absolutely stunning, acting as a home decor piece in their own right. Just take a look at the detail of the pieces for yourself!

You can purchase each city set in a number of colors and finishes, including a sleek all-metal design, a bronze palette, a classic black and white design, as well as custom designs.

Now, I'm not going to lie. These chess sets are quite a pretty penny, ranging anywhere from £95.00 ($122 USD) to £2,995.00 ($3,840).
