When it comes to travel you need a set that's portable in size with strong magnets to keep the pieces in place.
It's a pleasure to play chess on this set with beautifully crafted wood chessmen and matching board in Rosewood color. The magnets easily keep the pieces in place on the board even if it's tilted or bumped while in use.
Wood core printed board using new technology means the surface looks amazing, the product is durable, and the cost reasonable.

This is, quite simply, an exquisite little chess set. It is very well made and comes in an attractive zippered case. The magnets are surprisingly strong. The miniature board is beautiful. My one concern is that the tiny pieces could be very easy to lose. But this would make a superb gift for any chess player.
This is a really nice set - my daughter and I are both very happy with the quality. The size is perfect for either travel, or if you have limited space.
The magnets are so strong that midgame I picked up the board and turned it completely upside down, again and again just to see - not one piece budged at all.
The travel case is a soft zipbag with foam inside and the chess pieces are protected from chipping each other and the chess board.
I Love this chess set. Since I purchased it, I take everywhere I go. There's always a challenger around the corner. It's well made, and the magnets in the pieces are fairly strong. I highly recommend it.
As written in topic, its still awesome nur the weak magnets are annoying
I wasn't sure about ordering this product without seeing it first. But it met and beat my expectations. Will order from them again the person I gave it to for a gift was amazed and loved it.
