Beautiful little board

I love the form factor of this little travel board. I had wanted something that was small enough to fit in my bag but also still fully flat. The board is perfect dimensions to carry easily, the material is really solid quality and the case itself fits all the material really well while protecting the board and pieces together. The pieces themselves are a really comfortable size for a travel set, each distinct enough to easily tell apart. The felt on a few of the pieces is peeling at the edges (an easy fix) and one of the knights had glue saturate the felt so that it is not as soft and quiet during movement but ultimately doesn't affect play. Otherwise a fantastic board and makes it easy to play with my kids without worrying about them knocking pieces around. Lovely board.

Perfect Chess Set

I love this chess set . It is perfect size to carry when going for travel. Also it's so cute and stylish.


I would recommend this to anyone looking for a stylish travel set , well made and very durable with its own carrying case. There was a slight imperfection on the side of the board which I first didn’t notice but nothing that takes away from the overall level

Quality product and great service

I bought this set as a gift for my son and he loves it. The quality is great and it is the perfect size...small enough to travel with but big enough to easily play. The solid board is so much better than folding boards that don't always lay flat. The magnets work good at holding everything in place when moving the board. My order was shipped quickly and arrived on time. I definitely recommend both the chess set and buying from chessman.com.

Beautiful Set

Beautiful set, magnets work well, nice zippered case. Wood pieces are nicely cut. Only problem was the edges of the felts on a few pieces were not completely glued down which I glued down myself with some gorilla glue. Should not have to do that on a quality set.
