Space Invaders chessboard
A designer has created an 'out of this world' chessboard - based on retro arcade game Space Invaders.
Tommy Hills, 34, has replaced the Queens with motherships, the Kings with turrets, and the rooks with shields.
All the pieces - including the alien pawns - are laser-cut from fluorescent red and yellow acrylic.
Mr Hills hopes the board will appeal to gamers, chess players, and "anyone with a nostalgia for classic games".
"It's an interesting comparison between the mindless button mashing of video games in a virtual space versus the thoughtful strategic play of chess on a physical space," he said.
Fans can buy the entire board and 32 pieces for £41 or two stand-alone pieces for £6.
