Concrete Chess Set Inspired by Brutalist Architecture Launches on Kickstarter

NORFOLK, Va., Jan. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ —¬†Neobrutal studio has released a Kickstarter campaign for its Brutalist architecture inspired chess set. As part of Kickstarter’s January Make 100 campaign, Neobrutal is committed to making 100 chess sets.
