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.

Great travel set but not perfect

This is a great travel set. It is the perfect size for travel, small enough to be considered a true travel set but large enough that you can distinguish between pieces. The pieces are nicely made and attractive.

Unfortunately, the magnets are not strong on all of the pieces and prevent this from receiving a five-star review. A handful of pieces slide right off the board, making play on a train or in a crowded space untenable. I would be more likely to overlook this at a more economical price point.

The board is a great size. I would also buy a companion set of checkers to go along with this set as sometimes we like to switch between checkers and chess.


Just got my set. The quality is very good and the shipment was very fast. I really like the two storage bags; they are well padded and will make transporting this set while I'm traveling a breeze. The only thing that I could wish for in the way of improvement would be extra queens for promotions. If there are any available, I would be willing to purchase them to complete my travel set.


Incredibly high quality set. Big recommend.

Good service, good product

The shipping was fast and the set works great! This is an awesome gift.

a very nice little set

I wanted a little magnetic set that I could put on the bed to use for practice that takes up very little room. It's very well made, and compact enough to fit anywhere; really, just what I was looking for. Also great for setting up positions or puzzles that you can leave intact where the pieces will stay in place without falling off the board if it gets moved around. Granted, it's not an inexpensive set for the size, but well worth the money for something that I know will last a long time. Also nice to have cases both for the board and the pieces. I'm very pleased with the purchase...basically a Christmas present to myself. :)
Happy Holidays to all,
