Checkerboard Flooring is a craftable Turf item. It requires 1 Marble to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype. Like other Turfs, it can be placed on any bare ground tile or used as fuel.

Checkerboard Flooring spawns around the Wooden Thing, in the Chess biome, and in various Set Pieces

Eyeplants cannot spawn on Checkerboard Flooring, making it an expensive and artificial way of protecting oneself from Lureplants. Plants like Berry Bushes, Grass Tufts, Saplings, Spiky Bushes, Pine Cones, and Birchnuts can't be planted on these turfs, unless they were planted before the turfs were placed.

When placed on the Surface World and the area is large enough, Crows are the only Birds that will spawn and land on these turfs.

Caution is advised when looking for this type of Turf, as the Clockwork Monsters can provide a challenge to unprepared players that are attempting to collect it.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, this Turf will not spawn Puddles. Tides and expanding Puddles can still flood this Turf, however.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Checkerboard Flooring was added in the A Little Rain Must Fall update.
  • Despite being crafted from Marble, it can be used as fuel like the other Turfs.
  • When walking on Checkerboard Flooring, a distinct ambient sound can be heard, similar to the one near an assembled Wooden Thing.
