The Play Magnus Educational Chess Set
About the The Play Magnus Educational Chess Set
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to hold and easy to move.The Victorian green baize (felt) traditionally found on the base of chess pieces has been replaced by simple, yet defining, black and white.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.
