It has always seemed to me that there are bounties of two things in life: jackets or jumpers with hoods, forming an article of clothing known as a 'hoodie' and moments in time where you are left twiddling your thumbs in boredom with your partner, friend, relative, at various places with not much to do (airport delays are a very good example).

Hoods, coincidentally make a very good place to put small objects if you felt so inclined and were sure that you had no need for the hood, and chess is a good time killer.

Therefore I introduce Chess Hoodies, hoods that can come separate or with a jumper, that can be removed so as that when folded up, form a miniturised chess board, and a small zip compartment provides little chess or checkers peices.

Next up: Snakes and ladders versions. (or a Chess Hoodie with felt snakes and ladders to be added before the game.)

       + for anything with a hood on it, but particularly for a good idea like this is.

       Well, they might check it out.

       I once got a chess piece stuck in my hand. They are weapons, people.   

       BTW, this is one of the strangest ideas I've read in a while. [+]

       //I once got a chess piece stuck in my hand. They are weapons, people.//   

       That is one of the strangest unexplained statements that I've read in awhile.

       //I once got a chess piece stuck in my hand. They are weapons, people.//   

       *Weilds king and bishop menacingly*   

       "I've got chess peices and I'm not afraid to use them!"

       *Grabs rook & handfull of pawns, turns rook upside down & slips pawn into it.*   

       "Go Ahead!, Make my day!"

       I was thinking that this would be a hood in the shape of a Knight chessman... That would have been cool, but this is better [+].

       32 friends? Spreading ourselves a little thin, I'd say.   

       "Aww... why am I always queen rook pawn!? I hate being queen rook pawn!"

       Genius.

       This may be a little difficult to work with unless the board part is flat... in which case the hoodie might be rather uncomfortable...   

       Unless... Crocheted chess pieces! Oh, that probably wouldn't work either.

       ++ And backgammon would be nice too.   

       off-topic, [froglet], how's it going with the braces?

       //I once got a chess piece stuck in my hand. They are weapons, people.// You could use pretty much anything as a weapon; A suitcase, for example.   

       //This may be a little difficult to work with unless the board part is flat... in which case the hoodie might be rather uncomfortable... // Use Velcrow. Although, it may be rather annoying to play on a hood-shaped board, and the hood would have to be Velcowable. But, you would be able to put the hood on in the middle of a game so that you could finish it later.

       //And backgammon would be nice too.// As would Go.
