Did you know that you can construct an entire chess set out of a single piece of paper?
I found these instructions while surfing the web and had to try it myself.
If you include the board, I guess it's actually two sheets of paper.
Nevertheless, it's still pretty impressive.
The best thing about these sets is that each one is unique. For instance, I chose a red and white color scheme, and decided to use little pyramids for the pawns, and boxes for the rooks. I also used moist toilet paper to add some weight and allow all the pieces to easily stand up.
I'd love to see what you guys can come up with :D
If anyone decides to make their own set, please send me the pictures!
This way if you're ever trapped on a desert island with two sheets of paper you'll know what to do ;)
