When it comes to travel you need a set that's portable in size with strong magnets to keep the pieces in place.
It's a pleasure to play chess on this set with beautifully crafted wood chessmen and matching board in Rosewood color. The magnets easily keep the pieces in place on the board even if it's tilted or bumped while in use.
Wood core printed board using new technology means the surface looks amazing, the product is durable, and the cost reasonable.

I strongly recommend !
I recently ordered a magnetic chess set and Chess House fulfilled the order very promptly. Great service! And the product is good quality.
I was looking for a small, non-folding chessboard with 3D magnetic pieces so that I could easily play along while reading chess books in bed. This was one of the few sets that fit the bill, and it’s very high quality.
Two criticisms that keep me from giving it five stars. First, it doesn’t come with extra queens. Second, and less important, it’s easy to mix up the bishops with the pawns if you just glance at the board or are thinking deeply about something else—the size difference isn’t much, and the bishop’s “notch” is very shallow and not too hard to miss.
Highly impressed with product and service. It arrived very fast to Hawaii.
I really like this set. It is very nice looking, magnets are strong and the pieces are just enough large in size to play with.
