Awesome gift

My Dad's friend gave me this marble set today. He said his niece gave it to him, as a gift, three years ago. Since he doesn't play chess he decided to give it to someone who does. I was floored when he gave it to me. Now to find something to store it in besides the box it came in. Does anyone have any suggestions? This is my first marble set.

Hi there!

I’m trying to solve some problems with my new template and wondered if you could help me out. Could you please check out my blog and see if the layout is as it is supposed to, that is with the title “Samurai Chess” at the top of the page.

It seems that people with Internet Explorer 6.0 or older has problems viewing the page correctly, namely some problems with the scrolling function which puts the title and posts further down on the page.. Some have updated their IE to the new 7.0 which seems to have worked out fine. Please get back to me if you experience any problems.

What a great gift. One piece of advice, save this set for the long games. I wouldn't be playing blitz with those pieces :)

No kidding. The set didn't come with felt either so blitz would be VERY disastrous.

That thing must weigh like 50 pounds! (Definitely not one you want to shuffle around). Great for display though.
