60s-style Electric Chess. The lights on the chess pieces are made from ex-Soviet Nixie gas display tubes. The board uses induction coils to power the lights through the top of the board, so that no sockets are required.

If you’d prefer not to use Paypal to checkout this item is also for sale over on Etsy.

These chessboards take a lot of time and effort to construct. Please understand that it could take between 2-4 weeks for your board to arrive. Thank you.

  • The first and only Nixie-powered chessboard in the world.
  • No plugs! Induction coils power the pieces right through the board.
  • No assembly required, works right out of the box.

Finally! After many months and redesigns our V1.5 boards are ready. Featuring printed inductors created using special PCB processing and a choice of through-hole or surface mounted parts for the piece PCBs (the main board is through hole). Note that for now, the ready-built boards will still use the 1.5 design with surface mounted components.

This is the fully constructed chessboard option. You’ll be buying a fully built chessboard, with round IN-7 nixies and brass fittings. You’ll be able to simply unbox the game and plug it in.
