Product Details

With a respectful nod to tradition the height and base of the pieces are defined by the classic Staunton set, but the sleek, modern design lines with stylish matte finish have the same cool, contemporary finesse that Magnus Carlsen has brought to the game. This chess set compliments the highly successful Play Magnus App, now downloaded in over 200 countries.

Solid, weighted, durable plastic pieces that are comfortable to hold and easy to move.The Victorian green baize (felt) traditionally found on the base of chess pieces has been replaced by simple, yet defining, black and white.

Stylishly branded, co-ordinated cotton bags keep all the pieces neatly together and the unique, bespoke carry-case gives the Play Magnus Educational Chess Set instant, show-stopping 'WOW' factor. The sleek black tube with Play Magnus App images has an adjustable, detachable strap to make carrying easy.

Magnus Carlsen has already become the icon for 'smart is cool' and kids carrying the chess set over their shoulder will instantly feel associated with this.

The official Play Magnus Educational Chess Set is an inspired collaboration between World Champion Magnus Carlsen and SAC Chess Distribution Ltd, one of the oldest and respected names in chess.

Excellent chess set

I absolutely love this chess set! I use it at work with my clients and do not have room to set it up and leave it out. The convenience of having it in a tube with a vinyl board is so nice for me because of the lack of space to store it. The pieces are really nice, heavy and the vinyl board is strong and doesn't show any signs of wear even after a year. Also, the board is complete with letters and numbers so you can record your moves.
Finally, the information that comes with the chess set is really helpful.

Quality chess set with innovative portability

Bought this chess set for my 11 year old grandson and am very impressed with the quality. Though the pieces are plastic they have a very nice look, feel, size and weight. I was a little leery of the vinyl board, thinking it would probably not roll out flat, but was pleasantly surprised that it is subtle enough to lay almost perfectly flat and also has a felt layer on the bottom to add weight and a nice feel. As an engineer I understand that there are always compromises in design and the flexible board was necessary to allow the set to fit into the tube for portability, an elegant solution. And the tube, by the way, is thick-walled with threaded caps ... very sturdy and well made. Now my grandson, who has CP and limited use of his legs, can sling this very handsome chess set over his walker and take it to school with him and start a chess club in 6th grade as he intends to do. The price was very reasonable and the service excellent. Couldn't ask for more. Thank you for selling such a fine product.
