This NHL chess design presents the Montreal Canadiens playing against the Toronto Maple Leaves. Chess players would typically be in a sports bar setting, probably sharing drinks while watching hockey. The chess board is made of glass to represent ice. Lines on the rink would be plastic pieces inside of the glass. Indentations in the board separate black and white squares. The white ones are embossed into the glass (ice).
Chess pieces are also made of coloured glass, with decals of the logos placed on the front of each one. Every chess piece relates with a hockey position, which are embossed into the back of each player like on a sports jersey.When a player is killed off they are benched in the boxes on either side of the ice- benched, as in a real game of hockey.
