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.

This is a great set and the pieces are easy to handle and have perfect weighting. It is enjoyable to carry on the tradition of playing chess with my children as I learned it from my parents.
I love this little magnet set. It reminds me so much of one I had growing up, in which my brother would crush me on long car rides. It is not a luxury item for sure, but the thick and squishy cover has a great weight, and the magnets are nice and thick. I also appreciate the analysis grid and the extra queens, so often left out of magnetic or travel sets. I always have this close at hand when reading through games for study and analysis, and one day will take it with me when travel becomes an option again. This would make a great gift or prize for a chess student.
Complete waste of money. The pieces are rubber (silicone)and almost impossible to move around
I remember being in chess club in elementary school and we always used these sets! I love the vinyl smell and the quality is great! This just brings me back to my geek days being in chess club and competing 😅😅😅
Thanks guys for the set! This was my first purchase from chess house, I’ll definitely be coming back :)
This set is well made and makes playing on it very nice. Feeling like you have quality equipment makes you want to play on it more, so it motivates me to play more games. The weighted pieces don't fall over easily if you accidentally knock them while capturing or moving a piece. The board is very nice and lays flat every time. We also got a bag for the pieces that looks and feels like it will last forever. Everything about it is great!
* Easy to order
* Arrived quickly
* Matches well with our old chess set
Silman's How to Reassess Your Chess 4th and final edition is a complete re-do. I found the 3rd edition excellent, but this one has new material, analysis and games and seems much tighter. Many players who want to become stronger will be pleased. Chess House delivered the book quickly and in excellent condition.
I purchased this set for casual play and study, replacing a classic high quality plastic set (gallant knight GBI-10 from Aarco, ivory and black) from about 1978 which had a broken crown on the black king. Most importantly to me, these pieces are nearly a match in weight and shape. In the photos, pieces from the classic set are on the right. It was not possible for me to tell from the web store photo the finish of these pieces. The pieces that I received have a more matte finish than the high gloss of the classic set. With the matte finish, some of the seams where the two halves of the plastic parts are noticeable. However, even the classic set had seams in the pieces. Compared to the price I paid at the time (and considering inflation), these pieces are a good value.
Granted I live in the same state, but still, to receive my order at my home the very next day (perfectly packaged) is quite noteworthy. Will be back, and highly recommend Chess House.
First order from Chesshouse. Need extra queens for pawn promotions. I called them with a few questions, and placed my order. They shipped the same day I placed my order and my two queens arrived well packaged and well worth the money spent. I will definitely be ordering again from Chesshouse.
I've bought and given out probably 10 of these now and I'll probably order a few more pairs, they're great for correspondence games or riding the train. Wish yall carried the postcards and stamps for mail games too!
The order was promptly delivered, but after the recipient opened the set, they reported that one pawn piece was cracked.
The chess board is absolutely gorgeous. Sturdy and flawless.
The replacement piece ivory knight was perfect! Great detail and good weight. I am looking forward to ordering more from this company. Thank you MBryan
Got two black bishops instead of a bishop and a queen. A new queen was sent out promptly and received quickly.
