Shall We Play a Game? Lens Chess Set

July 25th, 2011 by Roger Cicala

Editor’s note:  Our pals at are moving into larger offices, and posted this fun article on their blog.  It’s such a great read that we contacted Roger to get permission to repost it.  Quite creative!

Getting ready to move a business is just like any other move: you spend a lot of time waiting for workmen to show up: painters, electricians, plumbers, you name it. It seems Roger and Aaron got a little bored over at the new building. There wasn’t much to play with: lots of empty space, some lenses we’d started moving over, and some floor tiles they found. They had to entertain themselves somehow.


So a nice game of chess seemed like a good idea. I know: they were wrong for doing this. Very wrong. But since they did, does anybody want to rent a rather unique chess set? Shipping cost might be a deal breaker, though.
