While exploring NYC late night with my friend Brian (“Hi, I’m Brian and this is my friend Brian”) we stumbled into this great late night chess shop, Chess Forum, on 219 Thompson Street. We had a great talk with Chris, who was minding the store at the time. I asked about handmade chess sets, and when Chris showed us this wonderful Nuts and Bolts chess set, I knew I had to shoot some video.
