Battle of Issus chess set

You may be planning to spend more time playing on the best water toys or top jet skis while on a luxury yacht vacation but if the weather is less than obliging or the post-dinner hours leave you at a loose end, we suggest you keep these luxury board games on hand.

Battle of Issus chess set

Inspired by the Battle of Issus which took place between Alexander the Great and the Persian army in 333 CBE, this highly detailed late 20th Century chess set has just gone on sale with M.S. Rau Antiques for an incredible $1.65 million. Crafted from four kilograms of 14 karat gold, 2.3 kilograms of 24 karat gold and five kilograms of silver, the chess set is also studded with garnets, pearls, turquoise and rose quartz and comes complete with a handcrafted mahogany table and two matching leather-upholstered chairs.
