I was inspired by a glass chess set, that I have. one side is transparent, and the other side is more of a smoked trans. Since LEGO didn't yet made a right color, I used white instead. I hope you enjoy!
As, for the playing. It's VERY hard to play with all of the figures except pawns. They all have a 1x1 square tile at the bottom and every time you pick them up, the tile remains on the board. I could easily fix that, but since this is just a LEGO creation and not for actual playing, I'll leave it as it is.
