Michael,

Maybe I'm wrong, but I know quite a few chess players and I do not personally
know of a single one who has purchased a sensory board. I know many who have
purchased chess software, which by the way is a lot cheaper than a sensory
board. Also, if you did a poll question here in CCC, you would find a higher
percentage of people with them here then within the general chess playing
population.

Personally, I would love to get my hands on a good one. Until that happens (I
hope my wife reads this post), I'll have to settle for playing non-blitz on the
internet and making the moves on the board myself (which I would have to do with
a sensory board at well, it would just speed up my moves being sent back).
