This medium size magnetic travel chess and checkers set comes with a hinged, snap-closed plastic box that closes tight to store all the chess and checker pieces for travel or storage. The well detailed magnetic chess pieces are white and black solid plastic and come with felt on the bottom. Magnets are strong enough to hold the set upside down! The checker pieces are not magnetized or felted. This set is great for students or for traveling, and also would make a nice gift or prize!

- Board height when closed: 1 5/8"

Very compact set with a magnetic board and pieces. Should help pieces from getting lost
I am a Recreational Therapist and have a couple of consumers who use wheelchairs. Their wheelchairs are usually titled back for their comfort so playing chess with a regular chess set was difficult as the trays that attach to their wheelchairs also tilt causing the regular chess set pieces to slide off the board and into their laps. With the magnetic chess set the chess pieces stay on the board, not in their laps! We are very pleased with the magnetic chess set, makes playing chess slide proof!
