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

It is the "industrial" colony's equivalent to the tribal's game-of-Ur board.

Acquisition

Constructing a chess board requires the Complex furniture research goal; Industrial colonies start with this, but Tribal colonies must complete that research first (instead having the option to construct the weaker equivalent game-of-Ur board until then). A board requires Stuff 70 Stuff (Metallic/Woody/Stony) and 8,000 ticks (2.22 mins) of work.

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

Summary

Must have chairs directly adjacent to it to be used by colonists. Sometimes a colonist will play chess alone, which gives the same recreation. Chess improves the player's Intellectual skill at a meager rate.

Analysis

Compared to other recreation items, the chess table uses twice the materials of it's tribal equivalent, the game-of-Ur board, but gives significantly more recreational power (120% vs. 80%). It is advisable to replace any game-of-Ur boards 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.

It also provides 33% more Intellectual skill XP than the Game-of-Ur board.
