Hand-Crafted Legend of Zelda Chess Set [pics]

Like most geeks, I do enjoy a good game of chess on occasion.  Sadly, I don’t have a really geeky chess set to play it on.  I have come really close over the years to buying some really cool Star Trek and Star Wars chess sets but I just can’t justify spending like $1000 on a chessboard when I don’t play the game that often or at least not with another person.  Well, here is another chess set I will never have.  The awesome Legend of Zelda chess set below uses the cartoony style I can’t stand but for a chess game, it is still really cool.  It took Ben Howard of Fizz Man Industries three months to carve all of the pieces by hand and I would say that was time well spent after seeing the results.  Great job Ben!  Do you have a cool chess set?  Let us know in the comments!
