The perfect travel/study set.

I spent weeks looking for the perfect travel set for both travel and study. I wanted to find a set that wasn't too big and wasn't too small, had wooden pieces that were nicely made, was magnetised but not too strong for fluid play and that didn't cost the earth.

Basically, a grail quest.

But then a member on the forums at chess.com pointed me to this set on chesshouse.com and it is exactly what I was looking for. It even has a nice weight in hand and the "stubby" pieces are charming AF.

Highly recommended if you are looking for something similar to what I was looking for. This will get hours and hours of study and play and I am now a chesshouse.com promoter and will be a return customer. Could not be happier.

Travel magnetic chess set

Excellent travel set with wooden pieces.

Nifty travel set

Good travel set. Pieces are a bit stubby, as if taller pieces were made shorter while girth remained the same, but then again that makes for a solid chess piece with greater heft, so it doesn’t feel like a puny travel set. Board is nice although spine pushes up the center and thus each half of board slants down slightly toward the player. I fixed that by placing dark brown 1/2” felt round furniture pads at each corner on the table side of folding board, so it is level.
