Straight up chess

These vertical wall-hangable chess boards seem like a good idea. Imagine playing a game with someone over time via casual walk-by moves –

There are no time clocks when you play on a Straight Up Chess Board. This is a casual game. As you pass by the Straight Up Chess board, you make your move, mark it with the “last move” marker and continue on your way. Later, your opponent passes by, makes their move and marks it as “last move”.

A normal board could likely be converted easily with the help of some acrylic and a frame. – Straight up chess [via Neatorama]

    Nice idea. Consider to encorporate an extra shelf to the taken pieces.
