Good for traveling

I like it so I can carry it to anywhere. What's plus is I don't have to worry about pieces falling off thanks to magnet.

Love it.

This is perfect for what I need. My kids can play chess while on a road trip and not have to worry about the pieces falling off because of the magnets. I highly recommend.

Not bad for a travel set

This set is a little more cheaply made and I expected, particularly the carrying case. For example, the zipper fell off when I first tried to unzip it. Still, it is not a bad value for the price.

I have since upgraded to a better travel board

I like the size of the board and the carrying case makes it portable. The pieces are smaller than I'd like and some of the magnets fell out after a few months. Simple enough to glue back in, but not the greatest quality. It was a satisfactory set for the price, but you get what you pay for. I recommend spending a little more for a better quality set.


I really like our magnetic chest board. We bought it for use on road trips. At first I was skeptical when I tried it at home because the pieces seem remove easily from the board when moved purposely. So, I grabbed the board and shook it, bumped it, held it upside down and shook it too! To my surprise all the pieces remained in their respective squares. Some may have moved just a smidgen but remained none the less within it's square. I'm happily surprised.
