Product Details

This set is designed specially for players who are blind or have very limited vision. The set has a number of features to make playing chess enjoyable.

The 12" square wood chess board offers alternating depth squares to help with tactile identification of the square. In the center of the squares are holes for pegs beneath each piece.

The Staunton design plastic pieces with 3" kings have pegs on their base to fit into the 64 holes of the chessboard, keeping them steady in place. The black players pieces have rounded pegs on top for easy identification and the white queen and bishop have their ball removed to prevent accidental mis-identification, a helpful detail.

Happy with purchase

Love the chess set and the service. My order was shipped and received promptly. The set is good quality for the money and easier to use for my visually impaired child.

Just awful. The worst shopping experience I ever had

I can't say anything about the chess set because I never got it.
The service and shipping were just awful because of site/representative mistakes (like 10 days instead of 2-3, wrong tax calculation, my phone w/o the last digit, and so on). Moreover, I lose my money (shipping cost) even though that was their mistake
I will never buy anything here and not advise anyone.

My grandsons’ favorite gift!

This was a hit for my 9 year old grandson who is legally blind, all he wanted was to learn how to play chess!

Beautiful!

I preorder this chess back on October 28 . I peridicoally email CH to request an update on my order, and Joshua Burger was amazing. He replied to my emails very promptly and provided the information that I believe was available to him. I pointed out that I needed the set for Christmas and he made a note out of it. As soon as the set became available he shipped it to me. I received the set yesterday and it is beautiful and I think my daughter will love it.

The communication was 5+ stars. Should I need to buy another set, I will definetly buy from Chess House again.

Thank you.
