A pair of chess scenes, unusually printed side-by-side, featuring a couple in Van Dyck dress. On the left the woman smiles as the cavalier ponders his next move, with another man watching, amused. On the right the cavalier avoids defeat by leaning across the table to kiss the giggling woman, knocking the pieces flying, much to the other man's disgust.
