Alternatively, you could just talk these guys into making a custom set for you.

RevRods, a hotrod builder in North Carolina, USA, have put together what they’ve called High Octane Chess, and aside from being downright awesome, the pieces are made entirely out of used engine and transmission parts. I mean, why not?

It’s probably the heaviest chess set going around, so remember: if you decide to make one yourself, either leave it on the table permanently, or make sure your opponent is man enough to help you get it out of the closet.
