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.

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.
The chess set is really nice, my husband love it. I got it for him for Father’s Day, I started playing with him now too. I like that they are magnetic, it’s good when we are traveling and the kids wants to play with it.
They are beautifully made, materials and appearance is very well made. All in all it’s a good buy.
Purchased this for my young nephews who need a magnetic set to keep the pieces on the board. They love it. The quality is excellent and it travels well when they play in the car. The board size is good for kids who want more of a “grownup” experience. Finally, it’s a real plus that the pieces stow away in the underside of the board. Perfect!
The set is carefully well made with the pieces stored in precut cushioning that protects them nicely.
The chessboard/container is not only sturdy but beautiful. I also love that it was packaged so well to ship - wrapped in paper, then bubble wrap and placed inside not one but two shipping boxes.
After searching online for a gift for my son in law, I ordered this one and hoped for the best. We were so pleased when we received this set, It is beautiful and the pieces look hand carved. It looks far more expensive than it was. An added bonus, It folds for travel and the pieces fit inside in individually padded slots. We’re very happy with this set!
