Magnets steady the pieces and make it perfect for travel. This model comes without the edge coordinates for a cleaner look. If you like coordinates, see the slightly larger 10.5" model CHW10.
The sycamore and hornbeam wood pieces nestle safely inside two felted compartments. A single easy to click latch keeps the board and pieces securely shut.

I love this little set. I was deciding between this one and the slightly larger 10.5 inch with the coordinates. I liked the look of both of them but this one looks slightly cleaner. Turns out 9.5 inch is the perfect size. It fits right in my bag and is still large enough for practical play.
