World Chess Championship Set

If you're serious about chess, you might as well play with a serious set. And this World Chess Championship Set (£300; roughly $450) is certainly that. Designed by Daniel Weil of Pentagram, this board is currently in service at the 2013 World Chess Championships in London, and as such is approved by the World Chess Federation (FIDE). It features a 3.75" King, and comes boxed for presentation, with each piece individually hand packed, and a 50cm Rosewood and Maple board featuring the World Chess Hexagon. [via]

  • Daytrader

    Whether you know the financial markets inside and out or are just starting to learn, you should enjoy playing a few rounds of Daytrader ($32 and up). This brand-new board game by Samir Lyons sees you getting a job and trading in the companies you work for to accumulate enough wealth to retire, and then hopefully returning home before the volatile market wipes out part of your savings. Thankfully, a clever, lighthearted design from Ital/c keeps things from getting too cynical, even if the odds are against you ever being able to try your strategies in real life.

  • Nvidia Project Shield

    Not satisfied with the killer Android tablets and phones companies were building with its Tegra 3 processor, gaming chip shop Nvidia decided to make their own showcase for their next chip. The Nvidia Project Shield ($TBA) is a new Android-based portable gaming platform powered by the company's new quad-core Tegra 4 chip. Thanks to a 72-core GPU, it's capable of producing stunning graphics to display on the integrated 5-inch, 720p touchscreen display, and it's also got a real gaming controller attached, with a custom tuned port audio system. The icing on the cake? The ability to stream games from a PC powered by a GeForce GTX GPU.
