This place on Thompson St. in the Village
is a bit of an institution. I haven't played in so 
long I'd have to learn all over again,
but I love the chess sets they 
sell here.  Do you play?

[See more That's My World shots here.]


  1. How fun! I love to play chess! Great shot, wish we had places like that in the Seattle area -- or maybe we do and I just haven't discovered them yet! Have a good week!

  4. It was so long ago, I'd have to learn all over again, too. Nice pieces!

  5. For a minute I thought these were life-size figures. They're very attractive. Yes, I play chess and can defend myself, though I rarely win.

  6. Is that Maid Marian in place of the queen? Love the contrasting styles of pieces between Robin’s band and that of the Sheriff of Nottingham.

    Sorry, I learned only the moves of the pieces. Soon after that I got an electronic chess set. Level 2 and above stomps on me. There are questions I must ask of Ruy Lopez...

  7. nice chess set! I used to live on this street & still walk by here on occasion.
    I play once in a blue moon.
