Extremely light, durable, valuable and high quality – carbon fibre. This composite material was originally designed for space flight. Nowadays, carbon fibre is used to make the chassis of luxury sports cars, for example.
So why not use it in a luxury board game? Carbon fibre may be demanding to work with, but it does have the major advantage of saving weight wherever it is used. This makes it possible to make a tournament size board without having to compromise on the choice of valuable fine wood. This also gives rise to a really beautiful texture, independent of the individual choice of paint work on the carbon fibre case.
