Remarkable Set!

Best travel set out there!! I have tried several. Like the ones that fold in half and you keep the pieces inside, but when you open they fall out, or ones that don't have enough side area to put your captured pieces so you hold them in your hands, and they don't come with a nice case... This set address all those issues, the case keeps each polished piece in its own compartment and is sturdy enough to cushion a fall. Each piece is well crafted, plenty of sideboard space to hold the captured pieces, and of course magnetic enough so you can flip upside down. Bravo!

Great set!

I purchased this for my daughter to bring to college and it was perfect! Very nice case, also.

Great product!

Received my magnetic chess board very quickly. It is made with superior materials and the magnet is very strong. Thank you for such a great product!

I'm glad that our efforts to provide superior products is reflected well! Enjoy!

Board came in timely manner, exactly as described and magnetic pieces grip the board lots better than other magnetic boards I've purchase.
In all very satisfied with this purchase!!

Rosewood Travel Set 12 inch

This was a gift and Chess House delivered in less than 24 hours.
The sets were perfect and absolutely stunning with a lovely warm finish on Rosewood which is simply beautiful. The zippered case was exactly what I was looking for because I wanted a travel set that held the chess pieces in place neatly and that would not fall out upon opening
Thank you for your truly magnificent customer service.
