Here's a gem of a set for all ages, suitable for home or travel. Why? We've designed this folding wooden set with magnetic pieces that not only look and feel great, they are steady in unstable conditions!
Add to this, the extra queens, and individual piece storage placements inside the folding board.
We've ditched the traditional green for striking black felt interior and capped it off with a black felt drawstring protective cover. Now that's a gift - to yourself or a loved one!
From the quality black protective cover to the richly carved, aromatically pleasant wood and high quality materials, this impressive set is bound to offer that 'just right' experience!
Strong magnets provide a stable playing experience even in bumpy conditions on the road or when moved around. Thoughtfully designed individual internal piece storage in plush foam topped with black velour will protect the pieces from damage.
The board is encased in solid shisham wood frame (dalbergia sissoo) with finger join corner construction provides great stability and longevity for this set.

This is a beautifully made, large, magnetic chess set. The magnets are very strong and hold the pieces in place even if you hold the board upside down. The board is sturdy and the workmanship of the pieces is excellent.
huge hit with my 13 and 15 year old!
Beautiful materials, excellent construction, thoughtful details, practical size, and good price -- it's everything we were looking for. The recipient is so proud of his new chess set!
This is a Christmas present for our grandson. The craftsmanship is even better than I’d hoped it could be. The magnetic wooden pieces are comfortable to hold. The magnetic aspect provides just enough hold. I’m confident he’ll love it as much as we do.
Looks good, practical, no issues but 2 small areas for improvement: the underside storage is exposed foam which seems chintzy and may not last. Also, the packaging had a ton of styrofoam packing peanuts, not a very sustainable choice, especially with all the better options out there.
