I'm a big chess fan; especially of "real-life size" fantasy boards and pawns.
I've dedicated this page to cool game screenshots and pictures featuring chess themes.
Some non-computer related images are included too.

If you know or have more interesting pictures of chess games (also non-computer related), please e-mail me.

It is from the final level where the prince confronts his own shadows and Jaffar.
