A chess set that reflects the ongoing battle over scarce resources such as gold and oil. The chess pieces are intentionally painted to reflect these commodities. The added feature of pressing a button to eliminate your enemy, by setting off smoke over the board, is a representation of a nuclear or chemical attack; the potential danger that lies ahead with modern warfare. Gas masks are supplied for both players, to bring an added sense of realism and fuller effect of the danger. The button is to act as a dirty tactic. Either player, at any time during the game, can set off the dirty bomb as a sign of weakness and evil; if they so choose. What would it take for the player to decide the only way out is to completely extinguish the enemy with a nuclear or chemical attack? This technically makes him a winner, but leaves him as a moral loser.
