It also looks like the type of game that kids used in cars. Kept the pegs in place.

Looks like a peg board game/desk that we used as children in the 1950s

a little compartment for a note pad to keep score would be a good feature.

Where are the rest of the pieces?

Hi Mike,

I made the pieces quickly just to illustrate, so they're not as awesome as most on Thingiverse. But they should be in the Rhino 3DM file. I'll upload the STLs for them when I get a chance. Alternatively, let me know if there's another format you'd like them in. Rhino can export to most all of t
hem.

Thanks!

So it... what, a travel chess set?

Yep. The alleged invention seems to be the idea of forming the bottom of the pieces to slide and lock into the notches on the board.
