Pegged and Magnetic chess sets have come a long way over the last few years. Recall those sets that were supposed to be magnetic but kept falling off ruining the game? Not so with these specially sourced travel chess sets made available through the chess Baron. You can turn the board upside down, shake it, and the pieces will not move - turn the board back up the right way and continue the game! Or play upside down if you prefer. The peg chess sets are superb in detail - no problem telling apart the bishops and the pawns. Fold the set up, travel on to the next stop point, open the set up and continue the game. Treat yourself to a beautiful travel chess set design - see the Moon Drawers design, or the fold-up magnetic design in various sizes. And note the quality of the wood in boards too - they are generally quite thick and bespeak quality. Travel chess designs from the Chess Baron - enjoy looking.

Did you note the chess board quality in the above sets? Some of the travel sets have wonderful thick boards. Make sure when you are comparing prices that you compare the quality too. The quality of the sets are outstanding and are a perfect compliment to that staunton luxury chess set you have in the lounge. The pegged travel chess sets are great too. In the older sets the pawns and bishops are difficult to tell apart, but not in these sets from chessbaron, these are defined well and are easily distinguished from cheaper sets.
