Chess set
At the big 100, you heard all about this ingenious, collapsible chess set. It solves that age-old problem—the interrupted chess match. You can collapse it mid-game, open it somewhere else, and continue playing where you left off. Now that’s changing the game.

The board is 11″ x 11″ x 1.25″ and the pieces are between 2″ and 3″ high. Click on the pictures to view video tutorials (for the chess board, the knights and the rooks), or scroll to the bottom of this post.
