Super small, super nice

good for camping, good in the tent

Nice tiny travel chess set, outstanding service from Chess House

This is a nifty little set, ideal for space or weight-constrained travel. The board is tiny but beautiful. The pieces, because they are so small can be somewhat cruder looking than larger pieces (knights in particular), but I've never found a tiny set that does this much better than this one. Magnet fit within the tiny bases makes a few of the pieces sit slightly off-tilt (a result of imperfect fitting of tiny magnets inside tiny pieces)... but they stick to the board well, and the few that are off-kilter are only mildly so. So 4 stars instead of 5, but still a very nice set. Re. service: the set I received came with 9 dark pawns, and only 7 white pawns. I emailed Chess House about this. Paul responded almost immediately and quickly sent a replacement white pawn. Outstanding service!.. I'm sure I'll buy from them again.


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.
Great product!


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.
