Breaking Out the Wee Chess Board

We've got a dozen coffee spots a short walk down the street. This morning's spot demanded the smaller chess set, acquired in Morocco a lifetime ago, and made of Thuya wood.  The hand-turned pieces fit inside, where there’s also a backgammon board, backgammon pieces, and a pair of hand-made dice. Folded, the box is a little bigger than my iPhone, and about as thick as a carton of cigarettes.
