Here’s a novel twist on the classic checkered tablecloth. The Lowercase have created placemats that turn into mini versions of Checkers after dinner. A superb idea for on-the-spot entertainment in restaurants, cafés or even at home, each mat is made from sustainable materials and comes complete with punch-out checker pieces and instructions on how to play. The cutlery outlines on each side also help teach kids how to set the table properly. Each pack comes with 12 mats for night after night of old-school fun. All you have to worry about is keeping the tomato sauce off the red and white squares!
