Here you'll find many chess piece designs and styles, including wood, plastic, marble, metal, and more. A fine set of chess pieces will be treasured for years and you can give your chess set a completely new look by swapping multiple styles with a chessboard you already own.
Choosing a set of chess pieces involves pairing size and style to a chessboard. For pieces already matched with chessboards see the Chess Sets page.
For School Chess use regulation-size, plastic chess pieces with a 3 3/4" tall king in the Plastic Chess Pieces category. See also Chess Club Kits and Chess Set Combos.
Lost a chess piece? If you bought your set at Chess House it is likely we can help. Read more on finding replacement chess pieces below.
We started a chess club at my sons school last year and I found ChessHouse.com to be a best company to deal with. The mark of a good company is not what they do when every thing goes fine, but how they respond to their costumers when things go wrong. Well, on the second order I received a chess set with a broken king, and a missing pawn. ChessHouse was quick to correct the order with speedy service. I have bought several
chess sets, clocks, and books after that and will continue to use ChessHouse as my first choice.
Weighted? Double, triple, single. What's it all mean?
Weighted chess pieces are typically more desirable. As a result few unweighted sets exist. The added weight lowers the center of gravity for a more stable piece. The "Ultimate" chess pieces for example, is one of the most stable, ideal for fast games.
The terms are somewhat subjective, but generally, they range from unweighted to quadruple-weight. The most common weights are double and triple, with the double being very comfortable, and the triple, noticeably heavy.
Chess pieces are perfect puppy chow, or so they think. There are so many ways to lose or break a piece.
