We are thrilled to announce that Sunday July 6 at 4:30 PM we will unveil our new art piece! From the early planning stages of Meeples Games, we wanted to contribute to the tradition of West Seattle art murals. We contacted our long time friend from Vashon, the visionary Paul Gasoi – Paul has been working on an exciting new piece that will be on display in Meeple’s cafe. So please mark your calendars and come by to meet the artist and help us celebrate Cosmic Interstice Chess!
From the Artist:
The piece is a representation of a game being played called Cosmic Interstice Chess. It’s story involves George Francis Train, upon his return from going around the world in 67 days, hosting a game tournament in West Seattle in 1890. Train received the game from Lewis Carroll while in England.
