Magnetic Pocket Chess

Just what I was looking for. Good quality, right size, easy to use, strong magnets. Now I can follow a game in a magazine while waiting in the doctor's office!

Excellent product

As with all of chess house products, this is a beautiful well crafted piece. You could use it on the road and play games against someone else, or you could use it to practice. I use it for both. The price is amazing considering the quality of the product.

Great pocket set

I have several magnetic pocket sets and this is the best. Pieces are easily distinguishable and the board is a pleasant color. Highly recommended

Best decision I made

I use this set everyday. I love how you can pause, close up the board and the pieces stay in place for later. It’s the size of your phone so it’s easy to carry around. When I get bored I used to stare at my phone but now I get to play my game for better entertainment. Truly the best decision I’ve made.

As expected

This pocket magnetic set is as expected. The magnetic pieces are thicker than I had hoped for so they are easier to pick up than I thought they would be. It is not too thick folded up and still feels sturdy. We’ll see how long it takes for the plastic cover to split from the inner frame as this type of thing tends to do on the folds. Very pleased after a week of use on a road trip. (Also, no need to recharge so that’s a huge plus on the road.)
