I just discovered this site by accident:
http://www.straightupchess.com/
External image

A chess game virtical on a wall. Its art and a game.Its pretty cool.
I came to BGG to find out if there was information here as well but Im surprised that I cant find anything about it here other than the creators name Greg Moody but with no activity really.
I recommend the link to the BGG members and If there is information here that anyone can help me find here or even add here ... that would be great.
Just trying to share!
Big hug to everyone!

Well not a new game, obviously.

There's plenty of information on that site, it looks like.

Seems like a pretty uncomfortable way to play chess.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

Have had my eye on one of these for a while now. Looks perfect for playing a game over the course of a week or month. Plus they look great. I've been eyeing off a red maple board with a Pirates and Navy chess set.

Oh, that was he ment with "straight". I was thinking about some rules-quirks from preventing bishops taking bishops or queens taking queens, or from mating with a horse. Naughty me.blush
