La Dama degli Uffizi, a travel version of the checkers or draughts game composed of a printed card chessboard plus 24 two-tone card pieces. The folding board reproduces a detail of the flowery meadow from Botticelli's celebrated Primavera, computer processed to achieve the appropriate alternation of dark and pale squares. The game's pieces are obtained by raising the "leaves" of the 2-dimensional four-leaf clover-shaped cards so as to have 12 dark and 12 light artificial flowers.
