8” play keeper magnetic chess set

4” looks too small for a travel chess set. 12” is too big. This 8” play keeper magnetic chess set is my perfect. size 😃

8" Play-Keeper Magnetic Chess Set

Perfect size for travel & a beautiful chess set!


This is a beautifully designed and well made set. The storage case (though bulkier than many travel sets) is extremely well made and feels very high quality. It also enable games in progress to be protected. The magnets on the pieces – and the board – are nice and strong and hold the pieces firmly in place. The finish on the pieces and board is also high quality. Overall, very happy with this product.

Such a fancy chess set.

I'm totally satisfied with this item. More than expected. Perhaps the most beautiful travel magnetic chess set I have. The case is absolutely perfect, the materials, the overall quality, even the odor! Very elegant. I put it in my office and looks great. Some people that don't play chess now are interested since they saw the chess set.

I use this set for analysis and I find it very comfortable. I use it, then I just close it and the position remains for another moment. The con is that it's not that portable, but it doesn't matter. Personally, I was looking for this set since before the pandemic, always unsuccessfully; now that is available again, I bought it immediately. For less than $80 is really a bargain. I love it. 2 extra Queens are included!

Great Set!

This chess set is fantastic! Very well-made, chess pieces are very detailed, they are also perfectly proportioned to the chess board itself. The case is fantastic as well. A very nice presentation. The only thing that I wish is that the magnets in the Rooks were stronger. When I tilt the board sideways they do slide a little bit. Overall, though, I’m incredibly satisfied with his this chess set!
