Ralph Lauren loves the high end board game market. Case in point is this $2,000 Hammond chess set. Some specs for those interest: "Blackened nickel board and chessmen are modeled after a minimalist modern design. Black leather base conveniently stores all game contents." Showpiece? Absolutely. Game play? About the same as any other chess board, except these knights are not plastic molded. Saks has them as well.
