Provocative Political Themed Chess Game

Problem: Political polarization has bitterly divided the United States into two political ideologies--conservatives versus liberals. With opinions and emotions running high, it's easy for political talk to escalate or even turn a public space into a "hostile" environment.

Solution: I designed a political themed chess game to function as a tool to facilitate conversation about political polarization among strangers in a public space.
