Making Bobby Fischer “Roll” Over In His Grave


If only Bobby Fischer were still around to see this (he read our blog daily, don’t believe me? Prove me wrong. We win.) Whatever happened to playing chess on a flat cardboard square? When Bobby Fischer left the earth, so did the great tradition of the game of chess.

The Sharper Image Roll-Up Chess Board, seems to be saying “Hey, look at me, Bobby Fischer. I’m invading your beloved game.” Bah, get off my lawn. Though, being magnetic is definitely a plus. And if you aren’t a chess player, checkers is a viable option as well. Get your own for $50, which is about $4,000 cheaper than everything else in the Sharper Image catalog. We miss you already Bobby. — Andrew Dobrow
