A message from Raphael

As teens, my brothers and I felt the world needed Chess House, a home to source chess products from the every-day to the exceptional and unique.

One of my earliest memories was my family discovering chess at home. Over the next 25 years, chess remained a passion for our family as we competed in events around the nation and become very familiar with the world of chess.

It became a catalyst for creativity and discovery, and even entrepreneurism.

So, a generation ago we teens and our friends sought supplies to fuel the pursuit. What started with a box of books at home, through persistence and sometimes naïve dedication became Chess House - to serve you!

Now, we bring you vetted, useful and interesting products… with a little kindness, fun, and our unwavering commitment to take care of you.

If you’re not sure where to start or even what you need, shopping for chess online can be downright confusing and overwhelming.

That's why Chess House is here to help you when

  • introducing chess to a child for the first time
  • teaching a class
  • training in the workplace
  • traveling the world
  • entertaining resort clientele
  • easing the pain of a hospital recovery
  • or connecting with a loved one.

There are countless ways to fit chess into your lifestyle, your workplace, your community, and of course your home.

Chess House has a very unique selection of products from whimsical to practical, with many exclusive items found nowhere else.

Shop with total peace of mind and the guarantee we’re here to help you—even when you need a part for something purchased years earlier.

We’d like to earn your business and your trust as you shop and make Chess House your favorite online store.
