This is a great travel set that includes Chess, Checkers, and Backgammon!
All playing pieces are inside, including a pair of dice and a doubling cube. The board is reversible and features a magnetized side for Chess and Checkers and on the inside is a board for backgammon that is also magnetized for steady and sure play on the go.
A great set for family vacations, business trips with colleagues, and anywhere where you want the challenge of classic games in a size that fits right in your bag.

I am a college student who will be studying abroad next semester, so I bought a portable magnetic chess set so I can bring it along with me and play while on the move. The board works great, except a few of the pieces cane with no magnet attached so I had to glue them in myself. Otherwise it’s good quality. Would recommend.
I do agree with Alan, as I also had some misaligned magnets and a slight bend in the board. The magnets realigned fairly easily by pressing the piece down hard on a firm, solid table top. The board stayed stuck when I pushed it firmly back in place, although the crease is still visible. This set is plastic--useful, but not the prettiest set. I bought it for utility with the checkers and the backgammon included. The magnets are firm.

Very good; a black and a white knight has their magnets at angle and 1 part of the board has a small bend on it, otherwise fine. Could the knights be replaced and what could I do to straighten out the board bend?
