Introduction: 4 Player Chess

About: Hello! I am 14 years old guy from Finland. I am interes about technology and photography.

Hello. This is nice game. I made this about year ago and now I want to upload this idea to instructables.

Step 1: Base

I simply made this wood and painted it with black and white. Then I made lines with soldering iron.

Step 2: Chessmen

I bought two packs of chessmen and painted them.

Step 3: Let's Play!

Invite some friends and play some chess together.
