    Collector's Edition! (Limited!)

    This pledge is for the real collector and lover of Chess. Joe Miccio, the inventor, has contributed his five physical high-end prototypes of a unique Chess design, to go to five Backers of this campaign. It features proportionately shaped geometric pieces of beauty and balance—which can‘t be bought anywhere else! Every Collector’s Edition set gets sent out in a special box with a certificate of authenticity, with the story (on collector’s parchment) of their unlikely creation (which reveals the indelibly connected event that led to the origin of "QuickChess!")

    Besides the electronic board, glass board and geometric pieces, the Collector’s Edition Package includes another rare item designed by QuickChess’s inventor: CentreChess, a challenging geometric circular chess game, featured in school geometry textbooks

    The Collector’s Edition geometric-futuristic chess pieces were originally designed by Joe and his cousin, Lance Miccio, as mold models for mass producing cool looking plastic pieces to play on the CentreChess board. The plastic ultimately proved too costly to mass-produce, but the original high-end, geo-futuristic prototype chess sets survived in stasis, wrapped and sealed for over 20 years in the inventor’s attic, now revealed once again—only for you!

    As the sets are quite unique, and each one is distinct from the other: it is first come, first serve. Be the first backer to have the chance to pick one out of the only five existing sets in the world!
    Additionally, you receive the digital rewards, like the wallpaper, the digital coloring book, the in-game avatar, the color set, backer's exclusive figure set, the new chessboard setting and the mention in the credits!

    Includes:
    • 1 of 5 High-end Prototypes - first backers can choose which one
    • 30-minute Videochat with the inventor (Talk / Play QuickChess)
    • Special Kickstarter Chessboard for in-game use
