This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Pull up a chair, neighbor and enjoy a friendly and relaxing game of chess, perched atop an old fashioned cracker barrel.

This ole'fashioned cracker barrel has been carefully worked over with saw, chisel, and a touch of sandpaper, out in the shed so as to allow folks knees to slide under without gettin' whacked...ow! All the crackers has been et, and ain't included.

Note: Originally intended as a game of checkers, I was unable to get an answer as to whether chess pieces could be remeshed and spawned by the game as part of a checkers game, so chess it is! If someday I find it can be done as intended, I will do 'er.

Small edit, 01/20/08..removed the accidental doubled mesh from the package and re-adjusted the game board top to its original thickness so the pieces would be taken out and put back in a more natural looking motion (thanks to rebecah for pointing those out to me!)

This item can be found in game in the catalog under the recreation items, just like the regular chess board is.

Additional Credits:
The very pleasant to look at little green feed sack seen in the background was created by Berg as part of the beautiful Farmer's Barn Store set, which can be found here

Big thanks to rebecah for trying to figure out a way to get checker pieces to work, and for pointing out my doubled up mesh..oops! Thanks rebecah!
