A Dangerous Chess Set

This is new.

The Customs & Excise Department in Hong Kong has banned the "Flying Places" chess set apparently for the danger it poses to children. It seems that the offending set contains an unsafe amount of lead!

HK's Information Services Department has the details.

While we're on chess sets, check out these 28 cool sets courtesy of the Walyou blog. Among the twenty-right, this one's kinda cool.
