On another note: please ignore my ignorance in my last post.

I'm going to blame lack of sleep for this one.

Back in the day when the Purple Bag was new, there used to exist a checkerboard bandana. My pathetic search showed up nothing, but there's plenty of places online that sell them.

This works awesomely as you can resize the board as needed by simply folding it over!

As I've mentioned in other posts I've finally gotten enough Pyramids to play
Martian Chess, Black ICE, and Binary Homeworlds.  That being said I've been
looking for a portable (and fold-able) chess board.  I saw a reference in my
adventures to a Chess Board Bandanna which used to be sold at the Looney Labs
online store some time ago but seems to now be discontinued.

My goal is to find something that I can easily fit into the Purple bag I
bought from LL.

I've found vinyl boards but those can't be folded, only rolled.  That's nice
and portable but doesn't fit in the bag.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where I could find a cloth.
I'm also open to other suggestions as well.
