Product Details

A delightful gift any chess player will treasure. At 16" square this relatively large folding wooden chess set is a marvelously smooth piece of workmanship with 3" tall pieces. It even has magnetic pieces

Detailed rosewood chess pieces in a rosewood and maple folding chessboard are finely crafted and finished for a well-balanced chess set in color and overall appearance.

Interior felted storage secures each piece for protection while two clasps keep the folding box shut. The closed box then slips inside a fitted leatherette case with snaps.

nice board and set

The board is very nice and can be used with any set of pieces with a 3'' King. The magnetic pieces that come with the set are good quality and have reasonably strong magnets which make it feel like they are double weighted when playing. I use this set for replaying games and playing friends. I wouldn't use this for blitz b/c: a. it's too nice for blitz b. I don't think you can fling the pieces around easily as can you can with a triple- or quad-weighted plastic set.

Best Crafted Among Magnetic Sets

This is an excellent travel set that is well crafted and very pretty to look at, for a magnetic set.

The only thing I would like to have seen improved is the felt at the bottom of the pieces, it is too thin and not very fussy. Sometimes you can hear the wood-on-wood rub when moving the pieces. Also, the enclosure clasps seem a bit cheap and will need to be handled with care.

Other than these two

For serious Chess nuts

I was on the fence with this set and its 12 inch counterpart. I wanted something that was portable and magnetic but of a higher and more aesthetically pleasing quality than is found in most travel or magnetic sets.

While being more expensive than the 12 inch set, the difference in price shows with the quality and craftsmanship. Size was a major factor in my choice of set, as I like to be able to
