There are all kinds of creative chess sets, but this has to be one of the best ones you can play at night, preferably in a creepy old mansion/castle. Each of the pieces is a Nixie Tube light with the symbol for the piece lit up. There are induction coils that power the pieces so there’s no need for wiring between the pieces and the board. It’s ready to go right out of the box, so no assembly either. This is the ideal gift for your smarty pants steampunk friend. Just make sure it’s a close friend because the set is $660.
