About The 8" Play-Keeper Magnetic Chess Set

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.

Well designed

Well designed, a quality feel and fits easily in the corner of the desk.


Bought this because I wanted to treat myself to a really good "Desktop Set" that didn't take up any unnecessary space-- for example, no hinged lid-- and not a pegboard set. The set looks good, the fitted case is very sturdy and well made. Extra Queens and promise of replacement pieces if necessary. Set with case is rather heavy, maybe not best for travel. For my purposes, perfect.

Interrupted Chess

The design is perfect for maintaining pieces on the board when studying a game and you are forced to leave the game and move the board.

8” play keeper magnetic chess set

4” looks too small for a travel chess set. 12” is too big. This 8” play keeper magnetic chess set is my perfect. size 😃
