Came across this intriguing variant. Since there's just a very slim chance I'll run in to one in real life I thought I'd make my own. Just a scrap strip of pine of 1x1cm for the pieces and some chiseling and knife work. Darkened half of the pieces with a paint stripper and gave all of them a coat of boiled linseed oil. For the board a piece of 3mil plywood would do for now, burnt the lines with a soldering iron. Maybe a proper wooden try in the future. Got a bit carried away with a box for the pieces. Now get me someone to play it with . . .
