Product Details

Designed specially for blind players, the board has raised squares and pieces that work well for the blind or those with very limited vision. The 16" square chess board with 1.8" squares and large 3.75" Staunton model pieces make it very tactile. The pieces stay in place well with pegs on the base of each piece that fit all 64 squares and keep the pieces steady.

To differentiate the dark pieces from the light pieces, the dark pieces are equipped with small points, both subtle yet instantly and easily distinguished from the light pieces.

best chess set for the blind

A well made chess set of staunton design as a show piece and to play on. Others have been disappointing, but this one tops them all.Players who have gotten used to the 8 or 10 or even 12-inch boards may find this 16-inch board a bit large, but I like it because there is no crowding of pieces.This is a tournament sized board and set of men, both well crafted. This is what blind players have been looking for for a long time.

Beautiful and Functional for Blind and Sighted!

We are so grateful for this chess set, which is perfect for my husband and I. My husband is blind and appreciates the functionality of the design and the quality of the materials, and I am sighted and appreciate the thoughtfulness and inclusivity of the design and the beautiful presentation. I only wish it came with a nice wooden box to store the set and pieces in to keep them free of dust when not in use. I'd also like to be able to order extra pieces, but I'm not sure if that's an option. Thanks for this beautiful product for a diverse family!

Great set

This chess set is definitely solid, high-quality. I've gotten other chess boards from those blindness product catalogs that were majorly warped and had pieces that wobbled horribly or even fell over because the pegs weren't a good fit. This one is perfect. Pieces fit snugly and don't fall over. board is a flat, solid piece. It's big and heavy but if you want a good, permanent tactile chess set, this is it.
