Antique chess pieces and boards
Remember an old chess computer game which had pieces of the different wars around the world witch you could choose from? But we don't really want to play with computers anyway. Look, I like to sit at at a table with a massive fancy board and beautiful matching pieces, and almost hear the horses galloping and the men screaming. I want to almost be able to smell the smoke and the dust as I look at my opponents eyes while they are holding it out.
This is by far the most intended way of playing real chess as opposed to hammering it out recklessly with timers. Imagine we could play a high-stake game in an ancient Babylonian or Persian setting, or Roman ages. Its the about the passion for the game ,and also, but not only about winning. Why don't you think about your wars of most interest or your specific style of playing and quickly buy or even have a look at all the antique and fancywancy chess sets that there are, I am sure anybody enjoys it so much more playing or let me say fighting it out with high ranked kings and queens and well educated bishops ,instead of some boring standard black and white board.
