View Full Version : Therm-A-Rest already is a Chess/Checkers Board

Perhaps this is well known, or perhaps not, but if you have a Therm-A-Rest, then you already have a built in chess/checkers board.

If you have a Z-Lite, you can use the indentations and the out-dentations to be the black and white squares of a standard chess or checkers board.

If you have a ProLite that is anything like mine, you can use the littler flowery "holes" in the inner foam and the solid bits of foam between in the same way.

This is especially useful if, like me, you don't want to sharpee all over your sleeping pad in order to have a game board.
