Bomberman Chess Photographs

Here are some photos of Bryan Lambert's game Bomberman Chess, pieced together from Chess Construction Set materials. The board is made from 1.75" posterboard tiles which David Howe made into mats by taping and laminating the tiles together. He also made the rank and column markers which are used here. The regular Chess pieces used are from Fergus Duniho's large Chess set, and the pawns come from David's Cardinal Super Chess set. The Bomb pieces are wooden spheres with flat bottoms, and the Defuser pieces are wooden people, all of which Fergus bought at a craft store and painted black and ivory.
