  1. I would LOVE a giant chess board carved of granite and marble, with stone playing prices that you can sit on. AKA the Harry Potter props from the philosophers stone… A girl can dream, right? I also have thought about how cool it would be if some could invent a wizard chess set that reacts to your voice and uses magnets or something to move the pieces. I mean we do have the technology available to do that, so yeah, that would be cool.
