The quality of the chess table affects the entertainment strength factor.

Sometimes a colonist will play chess alone to 'practice'. Chess improves the player's Intellectual skill at a meager rate.

Summary

Must have chairs directly adjacent to it to be used by colonists.

Acquisition

Can be built by "New Arrivals" colonies for 70 building material. It is the modern equivalent of the Game-of-Ur board. It can also be crafted by a tribal group once Complex furniture has been researched, at which point it will replace Ur-board as a building option.

Analysis

Compared to other recreation items, the Chess Table uses twice the materials of it's earlier equivalent, Ur-board, but gives significantly more recreational power. It is advisable to replace any games of Ur-board with a Chess Table as soon as possible.

The Chess Table is a very cheap option for intellectual play and gives a significant amount of recreational power at higher crafting levels, but does not produce as much cerebral play value as a poker table. It does not require cloth, however, and is an acceptable substitute until cloth can be grown or traded for a poker table.
