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.

First set had some chipped pieces and the board was scratched and had a dinged corner. They were promptly replaced, but the second board also had a dinged corner. Another board was promptly shipped...this one was good. Customer service was great, but quality control could be better!
Amazing quality. Looks like an expensive wooden set, but in miniature form. The detail of the pieces is incredible. I'm a loyal Chesshouse customer.. great prices, incredibly quick shipping, and awesome selection. A++
The magnetic chess board is magnificent. The chess pieces and board are solid and the portable size is great for travel or anywhere.
My grandson loves this chess set, he takes it to school, for afterschool while waiting to be picked up. I love how great it is made , and I absolutely love the case, the pieces nor the board get scratched up, i love the thought process that went into designing this set.
Bought this after buying the plastic travel set from this site. Better quality board and pieces and so far no complaints
The plastic set had some magnets come loose in a short period of time. This set is worth the money
