Magnetic Travel Chess Set in Blood Rosewood is an ideal gift for chess lovers! Strong magnets don't allow pieces to fall off even if board is held upside down.
The chess pieces are hand carved in Staunton design in a combination of Blood Rosewood/Boxwood and a special lacquer coating has been applied on all the chess pieces. Every Chess piece fits into the special Insert which has been made according to the shape of the chess pieces.
The Insert is made of EP Foam specially designed for protection of the pieces.
Thin Green soft velvet felt has been applied on the chess pieces and the magnet power easily passes through the felt without losing it's strength. The travel chess set is packed in a sleek vinyl case for extra protection and safety of the inlaid chess board.

Ideal travel set (12”is the way to go).. Hassle-free ordering. Maple and blood rosewood very handsome. A quality set, reasonably priced.
Worth the price for a long term investment in a beautiful chess set
I thought it was great!; it's beautiful and elegant, plus the magnet folding chess board is very functional. I wanted a portable chess set and it was better than I expected.
I bought this for my kids to learn chess. I wanted a magnetic board so they could play on soft surfaces without the pieces shifting. I am a little disappointed. Nice box and board. I like the foam recesses for the pieces. However the latches are cheap, hard to operate and have some sharp edges. Why not use a magnetic closure? The hinges protrude when the board is open so the board can not be place
