Re: [Icehouse] Highly Portable Chess board Suggestion?

Now I want to get a chessboard thong for my girlfriend. She'd probably hit me though. :D

I had an idea for Eeyore's chessboard segments. Printing them onto iron on printer paper things and transferring them to different colored mouse pads, then cutting the excess along the edges with an exacto knife. They'd line up pretty well and the rubber bottoms would keep them from sliding (which is the only problem I've had using Eeyore's chessboard segments). Plus they should be durable and be flexible enough to hold up well in a game bag. I haven't had the time or spare cash to get a few of these printed up, but it seems like a cool idea.

If I can work out a way for me to put Eeyore's sgements into cloth form,
I will do so...

It's not cheap... and you'd prolly want Eeyore's permission (if not a "private" listing)... but CafePress could do it as a T (or thong?), which you could cut down to a (printed-on) wedge and sew a small double-fold border:

But you're talking about $18 per pair of wedges (I figure you could get two wedges per silk screening/T-shirt).
