This is a nifty, light, easily packed set that is travelling with us as I type this. The pieces are small and light, but not so small as to be easily lost. They are detailed enough to be easily distinguishable. The board is flat, but prone to being bent, so some care needs to be taken with it when packing. The magnets in a few of the pieces appear to be a little weak, so they slip off the board with more ease, where others hold when it’s held upside down. Overall,we’re finding this to be a good quality set and a worthwhile investment. Thankyou Chess House!
While the board doesn't lay exactly flat, it is a nice travel set. The magnets are strong enough to make up for any leveling issues but not so strong that you cannot pick them up easily. I would recommend this set to anyone looking for something portable and easy to set up.
I purchased this lovely little set for our camping fun box! We are delighted with the quality and beauty of the Milled Leather Travel Magnetic Chess Set and can't wait to enjoy it on our next camping trip!
Compact and light, great for traveling.
Board and pieces look great as well.
Only downside is the spine makes it hard to have the board completely flat.
Beautiful design, by far the best travel set I've come across!
