You've probably played, watched or even hosted backyard games of badminton, horseshoes, bocce or volleyball. How about a game on a giant chessboard? The one above is located at a home in Pound Ridge, New York.

It's currently off the market, its estimated value is around $75 million, and it's just one of many New York State homes with bizarre features that are hard to fathom.

There's a more affordable home in East Aurora (just $3 million) that used to belong to one-time Buffalo Bills' star Mario Williams. The felt on the pool table in the man cave is a dead giveaway:

The Buffalo-area home above also has a sweet library. And you'd have plenty of shelf space in it for your books, because it looks like Mr. Williams didn't do a lot of reading at home:
