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.

Good Chess Set For Blind/Low Visioned Players

This is my first experience with this type of chess set. I am a correspondence chess player and on days when my vision is too blurred to use a normal chess set to analyse positions I use this chess set. It was easy to get used to moving pieces and setting up positions by tactile means. It well-made and a good size (12:). I like it very much.
