Naef Bauhaus Chess Set

Naef Bauhaus Chess Set

The Bauhaus was known for its minimalist designs, and the Naef Bauhaus Chess Set ($350) is no exception. Brought to life by Josef Hartwig in 1923, these simple, ingenious pieces are literal symbols of the moves that can be performed with each, a perfect example of the school's form follows function aesthetic. Oh, and don't forget the chessboard.

  • Year 'Round Sled

    Who says you need snow to go sledding? Now you can sled down the hillside anytime with the Year 'Round Sled ($90). This traditionally-shaped polyethylene sled features two removable plastic ice molds that, after being filled and frozen, attach to the bottom and allow for wintertime hijinx even in the heat of summer. In the winter, simply remove the molds and sled the traditional way: on snow, while freezing. Be warned: there's a weight limit of 200 lbs., so our larger readers might want to steer clear, or else purchase one for each cheek.

    Bring a bit of England to your home bar or game room with Pub In A Box ($30). This handy collection of traditional English pub games includes playing cards, dominos, standard dice, poker dice, a cribbage board, a dual-sided Nine Mens Morris and Draughts board, blue and red game markers, and both small and large sets of white and black game pieces. Drunken football hooligans fortunately not included. [Thanks, Eric]
