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. Design allows in-play games to be stored and continued later, similar to the Drueke Travel Set.

I love the case and size so I can use it in my desk. Great for traveling too
A brilliant concept instilled in a chess set, perfect, and should last a lifetime... Exceptional Quality...
Sits on my desk while I contemplate my next move with an opponent over the internet. And it looks beautiful and pieces stay in place.
This little chess set is pretty cool and nice. The specially designed chess box allows user to keep their game while on the go. The magnet is so strong that the pieces keep staying at where they are no matter how far (and rough) they have been carried. It'd be perfect if an extra Queen is included for both sides. By the way the service as offered by the friendly staff is commendable. I'll definitely go back to Chess House for my next purchase.
Great little set!
