About this deal

Features a folding clamshell design, and includes a full set of Staunton-style magnetic wooden chessmen. You'll find multiple promotions on chess happening daily, so you won't miss out on getting the savings. We have made a donation to Refugee and Migrant Network Sutton - a brilliant local charity making people welcome in our community. My biggest problem with this set is that it is larger than the average "checkbook" type set and, though it fits in your pocket, it doesn't fit very well.

The board is made of wood, and the chess pieces are handmade by professional craftsmen that carefully selected from wood. They encourage critical thinking, strategic planning, and spatial reasoning—skills that extend beyond the chessboard. The felt bases protect the gorgeous, matt-lacquered surface of the board from any scuffs or scratches. Ensure the appearance and weight of your pieces are suitable, especially if you're acquiring a tournament-style set. You'll find real reviews of chess that will give you all the information you need to make a well-informed purchase decision.Modern cellphones even have enough memory to potentially shove a decent opening or tactical DB into such a program. Established in 1996 in Poland, Sunrise Chess and Games produce hand-made wooden games including chess, backgammon and checkers. Compact yet completely playable, it features a 13cm, green/buff chess board and is one of the strongest magnetic sets we’ve seen. The chess board features a smooth, hang polished surface, completed with an anti-scratch finish; and each chess pieces is hand carved for that additional premium touch.

Skilled craftsmen use care and attention to create sets from carefully selected wood by employing techniques such as carving, burning and inlaying. Bad: People have complained about the “wrinkles” that show up on the board close to the fold as it makes the pieces harder to place. Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions.Test your wit and skill as you meet your opponent over this Folding Magnetic Chess Set from BHB Chess. Enjoyed by soldiers, chess students, back-packers and traveling chess enthusiasts everywhere on the planet!

The chess pieces and chess boards have to be kept away from the sunlight (including sunlight through a window), in normal and stable room temperature and humidity. The carry bag makes it easy to throw in my suitcase for roadtrips, the board a very nice board, the magnets are strong, and the pieces are unique (in my opinion). Whether you're on the road or at home, this chess set offers convenience, durability, and endless hours of strategic fun. Some people care about the color of the squares; I could care less as long as they are two different colors or shades of the same color.Anyway, I'd be interested in comments from others who may have compared some of these options or who may have other sets to recommend.
