This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Now your simmies can as if "take it out" and place chessboard on any dining table you have got to play and gain logic skills
Never more oldfashioned and lowsorted Maxis chesstables that always dismatch your rooms. Just place the board on any dining table you want (use moveobjects on/off cheat)

Minimalistic office room by Ailias (only design and some of the objects and recolors) with this chess placed

4 recolors available (incl 2 Maxis original)

Will be glad to read your feedback

this is fantastic ! i've always disliked those chess tables, they get so in the way of decorating and take up too much space in small houses. having a portable chess board is so much more realistic too. thanks so much !

if you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning

Hey this is great! I agree with Thomas, the old chess tables sucked.

Spectacular! I would have to agree with everyone else about the Maxis chess tables. It also adds realism to my simmies world.
Thanks man!

Are you addicted to Mayonnaise? Is it alright if I use Mayonnaise? I will go outside if you want me to.

Finally i can get rid of that fancy chess tables (they are interesting, but really narrow the decoration possibilities). Thanks a lot!

AT LAST!!! Wow, you're a genious, hehe.. I've been waiting for these for so long, I HATE the original chess boards, not that I mind chess, it's just that it's so awfully unrealistic with an entire table dedicated to chess, normal people have their games in a box in a book shelf and bring them out when it's time to play, now the sims can be normal too!!! :D

The minds power over itself is great, what you make of things is what they become, change your thought and you change the world as you percieve it...
