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.

I ordered a 2 1/2” brown king and it arrived very quickly.
It is exactly like the picture. It is a lighter colored brown than the set I am adding it to, but will work great.
My only gripe would be that it doesn't include the expert manual. You have to get it on line. Otherwise this looks good. Plays great. The unboxing experience was pleasant. Very glad I got this.
If a chess board can be described as beautiful then this is the one. Add to that very well made and functional and you have one fine board. I thank Chess House for partnering with JLP to make and sell this board.
Item was delivered on time. Not pleased with the quality of the chess pieces but I did not select a high priced set.
Shipment, communication etc flawless
I really love the the chess set. Glossy nice pieces. Customer support is the best. 1 black king piece has bad magnet, chesshouse. com immediately send replacement without any extra cost all the way to Asia. Kudos to this company for good customer service.
I have not played chess since high school in 1966. This is a good set and board to relearn the game.
I love that they offer these regulation plastic pieces in several colors and they sell them as half-sets so you can customize the light and dark pieces. Thank you very much.
Nice game board and pieces. I wanted to wood game board and pieces and I’m very happy with it. The only problem was that three of the little balls on the queens crown came off. It was easy to fix but still I was a little disappointed that I had to fix it. Should’ve been done right the first time.
But it's not going to; recognize time controls, or count moves at all (as far as I can tell) . Other than that... it's nice. Sturdy! Well made! Reliable!
Perfect -- as expected!!
The pieces, board, and bag all came just as they were described. I love the weight of the pieces and love how perfectly portable this set is. 100% would buy again!
The King Performance is a very fine product. I was doubtful about getting this board or the DGT Centaur (it comes with a bag and looks modern). I chose The King because it offers a lot of customization.
After 2 or 3 months, now I'm certain that I made the right choice. The board is very fast (the Centaur seems to take more time to make a move), it looks beautiful, good size (not small but not that large). What I found amazing is the possibility to transfer the PGN game to the laptop and vice versa. I can get a Bobby Fischer game and transfer it to the board so I analyze it step by step.
Overall, it's a very, very complete board. The con is that it doesn't come with a carrying bag and I haven't been able to find a good alternative in EBay, Amazon or in any chess store because of its size (The King is a little bit smaller than a tournament board). The 18" carrying bag advertised here at Chesshouse looks nice but I'm waiting that it becomes available.
This chess computer is totally recommendable. Nice product and in very happy with it. I play MORE OFTEN and can practice what I learn from books and other courses. Get it right away! The price here is better than at other stores.
Beautifully crafted, shaped and well proportioned set. As a set collector this is so far my favourite.
I am very pleased with my order and the customer service.
