The chess table is a piece of recreation furniture that provides cerebral recreation when used by colonists, as well as small trickle of intellectual skill experience.

It is the equivalent to the neolithic Game-of-Ur board, and only available to factions of Medieval tech level or above.

Acquisition[edit]

Chess tables can only be constructed by New Arrivals. They require Stuff 70 Stuff (Metallic/Woody/Stony) and 8,000 ticks (2.22 mins) of work. New Tribes can never construct chess tables, and must instead have the exclusive ability to construct game-of-Ur boards.

They are also available from Outlander traders and faction bases, and as quest rewards.

Summary[edit]

Chess tables must have chairs directly adjacent to it to be used by up to two colonists. Sometimes a colonist will play chess alone, which gives the same recreation. Chess improves the player's Intellectual skill at a meager rate of 0.002 XP per tick, or 0.12 XP per real-time second.

  • Analysis[edit]

    Chess tables are one of the early recreational items, built once the colony has outgrown the Horseshoe pin alone. They are relatively cheap and effective and should be built early to provide variety to your colonists.

    Compared to other recreation items, the chess table uses twice the materials of it's tribal equivalent, the game-of-Ur board, but has a significantly higher base recreation power (100% vs. 80%). It also provides 33% more Intellectual skill XP than the Game-of-Ur board. It is advisable to replace any game-of-Ur boards with a chess table as soon as possible, so long as the boards are not of a sufficiently higher quality to make up for the deficit.

    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. Once poker tables are available however, they should replace chess tables entirely.
