Description

***These chessboards take a lot of time and effort to construct. We currently have a backlog of orders so it could take around 8-10 weeks for your board to arrive***

The first and only Nixie-powered chessboard in the world.
No plugs! Induction coils power the pieces right through the board.
No assembly required, works right out of the box.

Finally! After many months and redesigns our V1.5 boards are ready. Featuring printed inductors created using special PCB processing and a choice of through-hole or surface mounted parts for the piece PCBs (the main board is through hole). Note that for now, the ready-built boards will still use the 1.5 design with surface mounted components.

This is the fully constructed chessboard option. You’ll be buying a fully built chessboard, with round IN-7 nixies and brass fittings. You’ll be able to simply unbox the game and plug it in.

The symbols used to depict each piece may vary from the photograph depending on the availability of nixies. These symbol nixie tubes haven't been made since 1991 and are now in short supply. Once they're gone, that's it. Game over.

    Well made and very attractive addition to any desk. Properly packed for shipping - month delivery time makes sense as these are custom-made, communication good after a request for status update.

    Understanding listing indicated no buttons, still would have, however, preferred time/date buttons adjustments versus the "virtual" hand movements above the unit - have the basic concept but ran out of time and energy, will revisit when it goes to the office.

    Update:

    Now have the basic concept of setting time, getting into the menu tree is mind-numbing read of option settings where buttons would be a simple solution, this is beautiful and well made, just over-engineered for setting up - also, the small point <g> text is so small I need a magnifying loupe to read.
