Would they be unlacquered to give the game that vintage feel. And perhaps you could silver plate some for if you wish to make a particularly bright move.I'm currently testing boards. I have a gold and black lacquered board, but my testers tell me that the gold squares give the player an unfair advantage as their outlook is always brighter.
I'm building a bare metal board with brass and bronze squares - but the British Chess Society have told me it might lower the tone of the game.
Thank you for remembering us veggies but if you suggest that we tenor players are Queens, we'll come around and give you a good slapping with our handbags.Think you would have to make a special veggie one for OG though.
Necks possibly queens, (or even baritone/tenor as kings and queens)
