Green and Cream Vinyl Rollup

The photo's description explained,

This guy was sitting alone, but with a chess board all set up for a new game. I don't know if he was expecting a friend to show up, or whether it was a tacit invitation to anyone who might wander by, and decide that a friendly game of chess would be a great way to spend the afternoon.

I have a set and board identical to those shown in the photo.
