This was Evan's first overnight camping trip to Deer Park in the Olympic mountain range of Washington. One mile above sea level, near the straight of Juan de Fuca he took in breathtaking views in all directions. That evening we played some chess with this set.

Fantastic little set

I’m not sure which is better, chess house’s customer service, or this little chess set.
I love the little set. It is super portable. I traveled extensively for work. I have found that this little set fits nicely into a Bellroy Sling that I happen to have, allowing extra room for a Chess book or two and my wallet. Not much bigger than the little bag it comes with.
Chess House has amazing customer service. I had trouble with shipping, (my fault). Josh handled it for me quickly. I was able to get my order the same day. I also had a little trouble with some of the chess pieces, Lisa went way above and beyond my expectations helping me with that. I don’t think there’s any other place I would buy my chest supplies from. Highly recommend.

A great travel set!

I saw this travel chess set and I had to have it. The pieces feel great and stick nicely together on the board. If you’re looking for a nice travel board give this one a try!

Look, feel and SMELL are great!

I'm a very sensory individual so things like the look and feel of a chess set/board are important to me. The product was great and I liked it right out of the box. ...er bag I mean. And then I smelled it. In this day and age of "pleather" and other non-leather products, I was VERY pleased to smell the unmistakable hallmark of genuine leather. Love the set. It's just what I want for analysis and travel.

Weak Magnets

Very disappointed with this set. I was initially attracted to it b/c good size for practice and travel, but the magnets are weak. When the pieces are placed on the board and then turned over a Knight and Rook fall right off. Give it a slight shake several more go. For $60 this is a fail.

Save your money.

Hi Carl,
If the magnets happen to be weaker than they should be, we'll be happy to replace them. This hasn't been the case though with this product in general.. I suspect that it simply didn't quite meet your specific expectations. We're happy to receive a return. There are other magnetic sets that we have that don't have a leather board but do focus on magnet strength.

Def exceeds my expectations!

Wow. I have not had a product experience like this in a long time. The board is high quality and the perfect size for me to tote in my bike saddle bag or backpack. It lies flat enough for use on soft surfaces like a lap or bed. It works fine on a tabletop and is easy to pick up. The magnets are just the right strength to allow easy moving or tilting of the board. Pieces are wooden with a nice sheen of quality. I love the short stout pieces! This arrived in three days too! I highly recommend both this 9” board and Chess House.
