About The DGT FIDE Chess Pieces - Weighted

The Official FIDE Weighted Chess Set was first used on DGT boards at the World Championship Match in 2013 in Chennai India when Magnus Carlsen used the pieces to defeat Vishwanathan Anand and become the 16th World Champion.

The distinctive set was designed by internationally renowned Pentagram designer and architect Daniel Weil. The pieces are based on the proportions of classical Greek architecture and the classic Staunton design to create a set that is both modern and traditional.

Although these beautiful extra pieces are for a DGT electronic board they can be purchased separately for the DGT board as well as to add a new style of pieces to a board you already own.

Use with any DGT E-board or Smartboard! 
These pieces do not work the with DGT Centaur.

Stylish FIDE standard

Lovely pieces, if a bit light for my taste. Great finish--not too shiny but smooth enough to repel finger dirt. Horses are particularly pretty--some sets have horses that look like they just ran a long race. I would say the K and Q are too similar. I had a beginner get confused by them the other night. If the Q were a bit shorter...

Great Set, Great Service

In short, this is a great set. It looks beautiful, and I enjoy playing online so much more with this set in front of me. One of the pawns came in damaged, but Paul from Chesshouse sent a quick replacement.

In short, it is hard to beat the quality of these pieces - there's a reason why FIDE uses these pieces for its top-tier tournaments. Sure, it's a bit pricey. But this is the top of the line; you won't be left wanting of getting another DGT set.

Good chess service!

Chess pieces are great and work well on the DGT BT board. Outstanding service and support by ChessHouse.

Enjoy playing over-the-board games even more

The Official 2013 FIDE DGT chess pieces are gorgeous and wonderful to play with, in my humble opinion. Online pictures do not do these pieces justice. When the pieces are paired with a proper wooden DGT e-board and the play area is lit properly, the whole chess set becomes an "eye candy" which makes chess study or play even more enjoyable at extended periods of time. The longer I stared at them, the more that my subjective brain appreciated the new design.

After I reveled with the pieces over a few games, I could confirm that the weighted DGT pieces added to the satisfaction of handling quality wooden pieces - whether you slid the pieces across the board or lift-and-placed them on their squares. There was a tactile difference when compared to the stock classic, unweighted DGT wood pieces.

These pieces do not disappoint.
