Nixie Tube Chessboard Brings Retro Cold War Gaming Home Again

If you are like any die-hard chess player, then you appreciate all kinds of chessboards, and there are many, but this one is truly unique. The Nixie-powered chessboard is a first of its kind, there are no plugs and the induction coils power the brightly lit pieces directly through the board.

No assembly required, it’s ready to use/play right out of the box. The main feature is the special inductors that are the playing pieces. These are created using special PCB processing of surface mounted components, that are round IN-7 nixies with brass fittings.

While the symbols used to depict each chess piece may vary, nixie tubes haven’t been made since 1991 and are now in short supply. And, once they’re gone, their gone, game over. So, get your unique Nixie chessboard and preserve a piece of history today.
