Designed specially for blind players, the board has raised squares and pieces that work well for the blind or those with very limited vision. The 15" square chess board with 1.75" squares and large 3.75" Timeless model pieces make it very tactile. The pieces stay in place well with pegs on the base of each piece that fit all 64 squares and keep the pieces steady and in place.

I bought this as a gift and, almost immediately after opening it up, I decided I'd be buying another one for myself. The pieces and board are well put together and of much better quality than some others I've seen. This is worth every penny and only a blindfold away from playing an equitable game with friends having varying visual abilities.
