To quote the Looney Labs website: "Just what every well prepared gamer needs: a chessboard that you can fold up and put in your pocket -- or even wear on your head! This 100% cotton bandana is screen-printed in black and shades of gray, and has a beautiful curlicue border designed by Alison 'Looney' Frane, which vies with any in your collection. Great for Icehouse games and any others that use a chess/checker board as a playing field."
Unfortunately the chessboard bandana is no longer available.
History[edit | edit source]
Originally, this product was included in the "Black Ice" expansion set for the "Icehouse: the Martian Chess Set" edition of the Icehouse set. The first chessboard bandanas did not have the paisley border; they were just a standard black and white chessboard. The more attractive second version quickly followed, and the new bandanas were also released as a stand-alone product.
See the list of games which can use a chessboard in Category:Chessboard.
Note: There was a resurgence for this board and MCG was in pre production of a brand new series of chessboard bandanas that used to be available only through Kickstarter http://kck.st/JZIliy, but they didn't get enough backers.
