I'm bored. Let's play a board game.

I'd rather stick with Hunger Games

Shut up, will you. Let's play checkers.

Checkers, that board game we played when we were kids?

This isn't just another checkers set, mister. This is a hand-crafted sumptuous, all-leather checkers set, made by Gucci.

What? Your high-fashion labels haven't even left board games alone!

You'll fall in love. It is a rich chocolate brown leather board with dark brown guccissima leather trim. The playing pieces are in ivory-cream and brown, are embossed with the Gucci emblem and come in a dark brown guccissima leather pouch and carry case.

And you're willing to trust me with it? I am the kind who gets their fingers sticky with jam and not the kind who worries about which wine goes with a game of checkers.

Then I'd rather not have you anywhere near my checkers or chess set.

Why? Is that made of delicate Venetian lace?

It's Hermes! And made with the same leather that they use to make the Birkin and Kelly with.

OMG. Chess and luxury bags being spoken of in the same breath. Wouldn't have crossed Vishy's mind.

His wife should buy him one. The chess pieces are hand-sculpted in Brazilian rosewood and mahogany. And do you know the best thing. It's just as good as a show piece.

Why do I get the feeling that will be its only purpose with you around.
