Also a chopping board, chess with knives kit contains two
plated knives, sold to guide the emory stone pieces across the

rated gameboard for children 14 and over.
||culture: game: chess: theme:
||so not a cutting board with 2 sets of 16 knives including 8 little steak knives ?
||Not ctegorizing is halfbakery meta rules. Obviously there is
going to be incompleteness arising in categorizations.
||If this were for sale, would you buy it?
||Probably for the cutting board, and the stones, and the
knives but not necessarily to play the game with knives,
that's just a joke about selling a dangerous product that
you should not do. Haha not do.
||It's sort of funny thinking about second-degree stabbings
from volatile game players for those who play the game
titular rules. It's meant to be played with manners, and
at times a player must request the other player's knife
to lift a piece if necessary, for example jumping a pawn
with a knight.
||I like flyingtoaster's take on the idea more. I'd love to
have that many knives. And if playing with pieces that
knives the chess match progresses by the players knife
fighting each time. Obviously the game would be played
by turns enticing the other to strike a shield. If the
attacking player strikes the shield, say with a pawn blade
attacking a queen, that player uses short piece
disadvantage to kill the queen. Say the queen blade
strikes the attacker's shield first, with longer blade
queen defends position for that turn only. Without
shields the game progesses according to the first
stabbed, however as games can be quite long this
version is saved for championship matches.
||In such championship matches when the body is the
target, players may choose to fight with the longer
bladed queen for reach advantage, but that carries with
it the risk of losing the piece. However because in this
game effective defences mean the pieces are not lost
successfully defended attacks, the gameplay is much
different than ususal. For instance a game might have
multiple attempts at checkmate if the defender is
successful using the longest king blade parrying in
defence, and first making bodily, or shield contact.
||Chess with spoons? Chess with forks? Chess with sporks? Chess with cleavers? Chess with spatulas?
Chess with flames?
||Ooh, chess with puzzles. Once you decide on your move, you have to figure out how to unlock the piece in order to move it...
