Backgammon and Go (traditional Chinese board games) are popular games. The traditional way of playing Go and Backgammon is to use a board with separate pieces and having to move and switch pieces, making it very inconvenient. This design continues the form of the traditional chessboard but with a different structure. Each piece of the Rotatable Chessman board is designed to be rotated to display 3 colours – black, white and the neutral colour. This design makes it easy to stow away and avoids the issue of missing game pieces.
