Product Details

This small size magnetic travel chess and checkers set comes with a hinged, snap-closed plastic box that opens up to a 9" by 9" chess board with 1 1/16" squares and closes tight to store all the chess and checker pieces for travel or storage. The well detailed magnetic chess pieces are white and black solid plastic and come with felt on the bottom. Magnets are strong enough to hold the set upside down! The checker pieces are not magnetized or felted. This set is great for students or for traveling, and also would make a nice gift or prize!

Great set and great service

I've ordered from Chess House before and am always impressed with their service. My chess sets where mailed quickly and well packaged. I own a total of six of this chess set in both the small and medium sizes and have given others as presents. The medium size is nicer to play on, but the smaller size fits nicely on my bookshelves. Plus the magnetization allows me to easily move the set: great for prolonged games. The only negative is that I would prefer a set of second queens to the inexpensive and non-magnetized checker pieces.

Would recommend

Quality product that folds away nicely for storage in a duffel bag or suitcase

Nice Set

Good travel set, not too small; I got it so that my wife and I could play on the couch while watching TV, reading, etc., so that the pieces wouldn't go flying if we moved or jostled the board in some way. The pieces do, in fact, stay on the board when it is turned upside down, but are not so magnetic as to be hard to move easily across the board or pull off.

Just what I was looking for.

This is exactly the kind of magnetic chess set I was looking for.

Nice chess set for analysis

Although, the chess set arrived damaged in square A1. This is a nice set for analysis. You can sit at your kitchen, coffee, and end table to analyze your games without interrupting other people. The magnets are strong enough to flip the board upside down to where the chess pieces will not fall off the board.
