About Chess

"Chess is Life" - said Bobby Fischer. Similarly games such as Backgammon Draughts, Go, Cribbage, etc. feed the mind and nourish the soul. As for chess, Howard Staunton was the man who helped establish the standard of the design that came to be known as 'Staunton', where the Queen has a coronet, the King a cross, etc. Jaques have always been closely associated with Staunton, and most chess sets today are in the Jaques Staunton style - certainly all the ones played in chess tournaments. There's nothing official about Staunton - it's just a style - the one that has come to be known as the default style in chess. ChessBaron has mostly staunton sets, but also has themed chess sets including the popular Isle of Lewis, along with such sets as Sherlock Holmes, Battle of Waterloo, etc.

Customer Reviews

Moore Contemporary Chess Pieces in Sheesham Wood (M2041) with recommended hardwood board: A lovely product, well-made, well-packed, and promptly shipped at a reasonable price. Very satisfied. ChessBaron/Canada is a reliable source for exquisite chess sets and boards. Highly recommended.

"" Dr. Jim Striegel from Tofino, BC, Canada

I recently received an Alban Staunton chess set with the Sheesham 2 inch board. I have to say the whole experience in dealing with Chessbaron was second to none. Your internet customer service steered me in the right direction and responded to my question immediatly. The set arrived on schedule and it exceeded our expectations. For the price of two video games my family has a set which we are enjoying daily and will for years to come. Thank you so much
