Timeless Chessmen on Steel Blue Flex Pad makes a highly potent, versatile chess set with the luxury of wood pieces. We've also paired the Timeless Chessmen on a Natural Edge Board for an attention-grabbing conversation piece that will provide endless enjoyment in a home setting.
The Timeless Pieces are fantastic for all levels of play. Sometimes called the "German" design, it's a timeless representation of simple, yet elegant Indian craftsmanship. It's consistently a set of choice for home and competitive play. With no sharp points to break, it can withstand years use. If pieces are ever lost, they are easy to replace with the help of Chess House.
Natural Edge Chess Boards are entirely unique. Our Pennsylvania craftsman selects each piece for visual beauty from American black walnut and hard maple. The sleek playing surface is cut and formed, then surrounded by specialty cut walnut to show the unique grain patterns and the outside edge in which the individual tree grew.
The precision hardwood block construction receives multiple protective finishes for a distinctive, luxuriously smooth surface.
Truly one-of-a-kind masterpieces, each one is photographed, highlighting natural edge formed from wood just beneath the tree bark.
22" to 22.5" Square, 64 Squares: 16" x 16" with 2" squares
The Flex Pad Chess Board offers even more convenience than most roll-up vinyl chess boards in that it lays flat every time and can be both rolled-up and folded. Merely 1/16" in thickness, the smooth playing surface interacts well with club style or any felt based pieces.
Here, the 3 3/4" tournament size Timeless Chessmen contrast superbly and show off the luxury of wood crafted chessmen on a brilliant, highly portable U.S. made chess mat that's a full 20" square.
Complimenting your choice is a free pair of Chess House White Storage Bags to contain your army of 34 chessmen.

These pieces are exactly what I wanted -- durable, nice height, heavy, well made, and an extra queen for each side.
Thank you so much chesshouse for making it possible for me to own this lovely set. When it arrived I was very impressed by the intricate detailing of the pieces. I've been showing it to everyone that I know and they are equally impressed.
I want to commend Chess House on their customer service. I ordered a set for my grand-daughter's bday and mistakenly gave the wrong shipping address. I had made the order on Friday after closing so I sent an email requesting the address be corrected hoping it would be received before the package was shipped. Early Monday morning I received a personal response saying that the correction had been made. My grand-daughter received the gift on time and was very happy with the set. If the correction had not been made, it would have been a disappointing birthday. It is so nice to do business with people who care. Thanks for saving the day.
The craftsmanship is brilliant. It’s great to have a board that I can fold into a smaller form. Creating a travel case for the whole set, ready for staycations. A quality feel and weight to the board. A simple design that shows off the engineering of the wood. Very happy with my purchase.
Purchased this board for my grandsons (9, 7)
They LOVE it and take it with them everywhere they go :)
The board and chess pieces are beautiful and very easy to handle. Absolutely RECOMMEND!
Chess House is the best place to buy any chess stuff. Their staff are all fantastic and they have best customer service . They have the best pricing, best product lines and delivery is really fast. I live in Canada and got my King Performance M830 electronic chess set within 3 days! The Millennium M830 is a fantastic electronic chess set. You can set variable levels that can challenge you as your playing style evolves. High quality product at a great price. Also got the Chess Volt which makes the unit portable, highly recommend you get this as well. Thanks to all of the guys at Chess House.
I own six 9” Milled Leather Travel Chess Sets because they are wonderful. Some are for future gifts and a few are just for me. That’s because I discovered that the really neat things I’ve bought throughout my life are not made anymore. That’s probably due to not enough demand for quirky high-end things that are expensive to make. When I’ve lost some treasures due to theft or negligence or breakage, years later they couldn’t be replaced. So I’ve learned to buy duplicates of certain items that matter to me.
I bought additional “replacement” wood chess pieces so that each set I bought will have extra Queens. Extra knights, rooks, and bishops are also desired because the Queen isn’t always the best situational choice to seek after sending a pawn down the board for pawn promotion.
The duplicate Queens are crafted well although there is some variance in the degree of gloss finish, color, and size. These differences are slight, imperceptible to most people, and really don’t matter.
The 9” Milled Leather Travel Chess Set is what Indiana Jones would carry if he played chess (and if the zippered nylon carry bag had been invented). If every piece wasn’t a perfect match, Indy wouldn’t care. I don’t care either. It’s the only true travel chess set on the planet that I know of that has terrific Staunton wood pieces with magnetic bases large enough for a man’s fingers to grasp yet compact enough to fit on a perfect 9” leather chess board. It all fits in a small zippered nylon carry bag. Absolutely perfect.
The board I like has brown and cream squares. I think it looks better with the chessmen of each color than the board available that has black squares.
I’m quite fond of this and am grateful that somebody had the sensibilities to imagine it and have it crafted so well for people like me to own.
If you enjoy chess, get it for your own adventures.
The chess set we purchased is amazing - since it was a birthday present for my husband hoping it brings good luck for my game! It is a joy to play on such a nice heavy board and the chess pieces are very nice and tastefully carved.
Great value for the money, but it really smells awful. I left it outside for a week, washing it daily with soap and vinegar. There is still a faint smell but it's manageable.
This is exactly as advertised. Very simple and inexpensive. Perfect for my application. Fast service.
Fast shipping. Nice work.
Our giant chess set arrived today, and everyone couldn’t wait to play— A great way to get everyone together. I’ve wanted to do this for years, and the set is high quality, arrived well-packaged, and is worth every penny spent.
Beautiful craftsmanship… Easy storage… absolutely wonderful.
Everything about this chess set is great. The price is just right so you really get a value deal. I am happy with my purchase.
I bought this thing to take out in my humvee during military training. The pieces don't move while driving and if you flip it upside down they stay in place. Any time in in the field this board is with me so we can play.
