Product Details

This set is designed specially for players who are blind or have very limited vision. The set has a number of features to make playing chess enjoyable.

The 12" square wood chess board offers alternating depth squares to help with tactile identification of the square. In the center of the squares are holes for pegs beneath each piece.

The Staunton design plastic pieces with 3" kings have pegs on their base to fit into the 64 holes of the chessboard, keeping them steady in place. The black players pieces have rounded pegs on top for easy identification and the white queen and bishop have their ball removed to prevent accidental mis-identification, a helpful detail.

CHESS OF LIFE

Some things in life just make the days worth living. As a young boy, recently and unexpectedly going deaf & blind, as well as losing his ability to run and play and functional use of his hands - finding a chess board designed for the blind to keep him "in the game" was and is a life saver.
Joy can come from the smallest of things and make the largest of impacts.
If you get the opportunity when buying - please add the donate a board - you never know, it may save a life.

Nice set

I am just learning to play and this set is perfect. The pieces stay securely in place and the squares are easy to differentiate by touch. I like the heaviness and thickness of the board.

Chess set

The board and pieces are nice, but the pieces seem to be too large for the board. The pegs fit nicely into the holes and remain in place. If the board was a little larger, the whole set would be well worth the price.
