In Star Trek you see this cool chess set with 3 levels (plus 4 attack boards--more about those later). Here is how you can make one.

Step 1: Step 1: making the frame

For the frame, you'll need an old badminton racket and tennis racket (from the thrift store). Cut each racket with a hack saw and bend it to the curve desired. Its that easy!
<p>&quot;just feed these instructions into your replicator&quot; If I had that I wouldn't buy anything...ever!</p>
My tennis raquet snapped in half after I tried to bend it. Any tips?
Try using a metal racket with no plastic<br>
Just an FYI: <br> <br>The attack boards should be attached to the corners, so only 1 square overlaps, and the middle level should be overlapped by 2 rows with the level below and above. <br> <br>Otherwise, cool 'ible. I got the Franklin Mint set many years ago. I wish I knew more people who would play it. It's great fun putting the twist on chess.
i love that big bang theroy episode
&quot;It must be painful to suck on so many levels&quot; :P
Sweet! Bonus geek points. :)
I'm not sure if I'd love to play or hate to play, but it's obviously a great game. And your instructions of how to build one are very helpful -- I have old rackets I need to get rid of!
just like in the big bang theory!
That's exactly what I thought! In fact, I just watched that episode on DVD today!
you know those glass chess pices with this would be really cool
I'm gonna try that
how do you play?

You play like normal chess but the attack boards are moved only when the attack board has a pawn or nothing on it and to go up or down counts as a space
