About The 20" Vinyl Roll-up Chess Board

The vinyl roll-up chess board is the all-purpose chess playing board everyone needs. It's accepted everywhere and is just the right size for competition play or casual games. The roll-up chess mats are thin vinyl, cloth backed to allow easy, lightweight storage, and a smooth playable surface. All you need is a set of chess pieces to match the board. Most common is a 3 3/4" tall plastic club chess set.

You can get any of 5 colors, however GREEN and buff is the standard and most widely accepted. Green is also easier on the eyes for games that require hours of concentration. However, maybe your school colors would match one of the other chessboard colors! Choose from Green, Brown, Blue, or Grey!

  • Board: 20" square

Vinyl roll-up board - ordered two, one came damaged; both are undersized

I ordered two boards, which were shipped tightly rolled up together, in the shape of a tube. One of the boards arrived damaged with creases that do not go away. (See the attached picture.) I cannot say this happened in transit, because the other board was undamaged. The marks are not disappearing after two weeks of keeping the board flat. Not happy about that.
There is also a problem with both boards. They are advertised as having a square size of 2 1/4 inches. That is incorrect. The square size is 2 3/16 inches. The squares are smaller than advertised. This is noticeable in the relation to the size of the pieces, and also in a smaller playing area: the difference is multiplied by 8 in each dimension, amounting to about 1/2 inch. The total size of the board is 20 inches as advertised, but the margin around the playing area is thicker than it should be due to the shrunk playing area.
If you have never purchased vinyl boards, be advised that they emit a strong and unhealthy chemical odor. You should let the boards degass for a few weeks before allowing them into your living spaces.
Once the boards have released their noxious gases, they make good playing surfaces. I bought from Chess House because it is the only place I know that sells them with the dark squares in a light grey color. This color makes an excellent contrast with both black and white pieces, and is pleasing and relaxing to look at while playing.

Hi Joe! We checked on the shipping performance from WA to LA via First Class Mail. It was shipped on April 9 and arrived on April 15 (Tuesday order to Monday delivery). Thanks!

Quality anti-glare roll-up board lays flat.

Quality roll-up board that is durable and lays flat. Reduced glare when playing long games or analyzing games at home. Good selection of colors.

Perfect for our needs

The roll-up chess mats are perfect! We purchased two, along with pieces and bags.

they don't stay flat

I wish hat I hadn't ordered them, instead I should have ordered the "flex" ones. They just don't lie flat, a little thinner than I thought
