The tubes glow when you plug them in. No information about how hot they get.

Hi Fred, That's cool (I mean Hot). It might encourage short games to prevent burnt fingers. Either that or pot holders are included. Laughing


Good Listening

I wonder if you can "bias" the tubes to increase the probability of one side winning the match?

I guess that chess set would be extremely appropriate for speed chess then, and you also wouldn't need a clock. Razz

I agree that it's a cool chess set, I've seen many different ones over the years but never anything quite like that.
