Wait. Did you hear that? That’s the sound of your coffee table desperately asking you to adorn it with a well-designed, sophisticated display worthy of your impeccable taste. And that? That was just the sound of your brain shouting, “Exercise me!” And this? This is one of those moments when your design aesthetic and intellectual yearnings blissfully meet and all voices in your head point to the Wobble Chess Set by Umbra. Designed by industrial designer Adin Mumma, this striking chess set features pieces with decidedly simple curves and a wobbly base atop an ironic surface of maple and cherry wood. Your coffee table and brain would approve.

I have been looking for a novel chess set for the last few years and the moment I saw this set in the store, I knew I'd found what I was looking for! It is so unique and beautiful. Looks really great in my home and I'm looking forward to many years with this gorgeous, one of a kind chess set.

I work for a park district and we have chess classes and tournaments. Some of these kids are 5 yrs old. I have been telling their parents about my new Umbra Wobble Chess Set and how cool it is. Get this, I don't play but as a table decoratiion and coversatiion piece, it is gorgeous. When anyone comes over, they ask where did you get that. Then we get into the whole Marbles thing.

Love this chess board!

How To Play

Use your strategic planning and logistical thinking skills to seize your opponent’s king! Take turns moving each game piece until a king is captured. Each game piece has it’s own special movement pattern and it’s up to you to form the best offensive and defensive playing strategy to successfully capture the enemy’s king.
