Homebrewers Board Game Up On Kickstarter

While I, myself, am a teetotaler, I can certainly appreciate the craftsmanship and care that goes into a product such as beer.

If youre one of those people, you should check out Homebrewers, a new beer-brewing board game thats up on Kickstarter now. From the campaign: Welcome to the hobby of homebrewing!

SKU-HCCV101 House of Hauteville Chess Set and Board Combo - Antique White and Brown Marble from Chess House  sku

House of Hauteville Chess Set and Board Combo - Antique White and Brown Marble - HCCV101 by ChessHouse.com

Item description: This Chess Board Games product is by ChessHouse.com - The House of Hauteville Chess Set is an artist's dream come true. ChessHouse brings you artist Carolyn Cavanaugh's design, now produced in limited quantities right here in the USA. Her masterpiece is now available to chess collectors and artists. An initial production was donated to the Smithsonian's benefit auction and brought in over $500. "The inspiration for this set of chessmen came from a friend who asked me to make a mantle piece based on a pawn she had seen in a book by John Norwich. I read the book, The Normans in Sicily, and fell in love with the idea of these brave men. The knights and the pawn are directly based on some 11th century Norman wood chessmen that have been preserved at The Biblioteque de National in France. The other pieces are original imaginings. I gave the king a cat because there is a saying (of later vintage) that "a cat may look upon a king." The queen has a hawk because she is a warrior woman. I've named the king and queen after the famous warrior duo, Robert Guiscard and his wife Sichelgaita. I often refer to the knights as Tancred and Drogo, also names in the Norman Hauteville family." "I once attended a lecture by Lord Norwich at the Smithsonian. He was not talking about his book on the Normans, but about his mother. Nonetheless I arranged to have someone at Smithsonian give him the six little figures to take home with him. He wrote me a letter of thanks and said he keeps them on the mantle. John Julius Norwich is a brilliant writer and has many wonderful books to his credit." - Carolyn Cavanaugh; Creator of The House of Hauteville Chessmen The Pieces: Each piece was originally modeled in clay, then molded and reproduced in wax. The wax patterns were refined for better detail and final molds were made for reproduction. They are cast in stone resin. These pieces are handcrafted entirely in the US. The pieces are substantial from 3 to 5 inches tall and are ideal with a chessboard with at least 2" squares. Designed for the enjoyment of all, the serious player and the collector, we hope everyone will enjoy the artistry and humor of this impressive work. 32 pieces Made of marble resin. King size: 5" Pawn size: 3 1/4" Base size: 1 7/8" Bases felted with four green dots Weight: 9+ pounds. Weight varies slightly from set to set. The Board: Perfect for chess players and admirers this is one of the finest US made solid wood chess boards handcrafted from locally sourced walnut and maple hardwoods.
