Hexagonal Chess Set

This is Glinski's Hexagonal Chess, which I think I first found out about in the 1970s through CHESS magazine.

The ChessVariants site explains how you can make your own sets for this and other chess games.

N.B. The Bishops on f4/f8 should start on f1/f11

Chess Quotes

"One of the main aims has been to highlight the differences in appraoch between a Grandmaster and a weaker player, and to try and narrow the gap. To some extent this comes down to technical matters - more accurate analysis, superior opening knowledge, better endgame technique and so forth; but in other respects the difference goes deeper and many readers will find that they need to rethink much of their basic attitude to the game.
— Peter Griffiths, Introduction to Secrets of Grandmaster Chess.
