Hi! Before we do anything, I just want to say thanks for buying our chessboard! Hopefully it’s what you wanted.

The instructions below should see your board construction from start to finish. But if you ever get stuck, just send an email to our engineer Tony, and he’ll help you out. If you’re a ThinkGeek customer, please don’t email ThinkGeek about these problems. They can’t help you. Email Tony instead.

Also, you might notice our instructions are all posted on our forums. This is so people can ask for advice, or help other people out. So if you get stuck with something, try posting your issue on the boards. Somebody might have a handy solution.

Now let’s get started! I recommend you follow the list numerically, but, if you fancy, you can start on any part you like.

1: Before doing anything, check to make sure you have what you need. Here’s a full list of everything in the box. If something’s missing, let us know.

2: With that out of the way, it’s time to get to work! Your first step should be to build the main board PCB. The instructions for that are right here.

3: After that, it’s time for the PCBs for the chess pieces. Instructions can be found here.

4: Now, make some cases for your chess pieces. This is pretty simple to do, but here’s some help anyway.

5: After that, it’s time to build and paint the board case itself! The instructions are here.

You’re done! You’ve gone and build yourself a chessboard! I hope you like it. If you have any trouble with it, then send us an email and we’ll help you out.
