The chessboard is a miscellaneous item in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.


In Fallout 3 it can be used as Rock-It Launcher ammunition, but in Fallout: New Vegas it is nothing more than a miscellaneous item.

  • The only complete chess set is in SatCom Array NN-03d, made up of miniature intact garden gnomes, bottles of beverages, and electron charge packs.
  • There is a complete set of checkers (made of bottle caps) in L'Enfant, in the accessible part of the collapsed car tunnel, along with a sniper rifle and a U.S. Army: 30 Handy Flamethrower Recipes.
  • Much like the giant teddy bear, a giant chessboard can be found in both the personal offices and the CO quarters at Fort Constantine.
    • CO quarters - In the first doorway to the right, on a table. A few cherry bombs are used as pieces.
    • Personal offices - If entered through the rear entrance, walk down the hall past the stairs, make a right, and then turn into the first room on the right. It will be on the desk next to a lunchbox.
