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.

King Height 2.5 Inches
Sorry this item is out of stock. Available early February 2019
An exceptional travel magnetic chess set with a King at 2.5 inch high and a total weight of 1.9kg. The set measures 12 inch x 12 inch and is 1.6 inch thick. The set has an internal insert for each chess piece. The pieces are well finished with good attention to detail, and the attached, enclosing board is very high in quality. The set and it's parts are finished very well and the inserts fit well with no sticking or rough parts. We have one of these in the office ready to pack away when the boss walks in - it's our choice when the need is 'on the go'. We sent Janet to the North Pole with this one, and it came back intact. Admittedly the chess pieces were now frozen on instead of magnetized - but it still did very well. There is a ball-bearing midway through the insert edge to keep the insert in it's place, this operates smoothly and without any exertion needed to open or close. With many cheap travel sets on the market, this isn't one of them - a very good value and high quality magnetic chess set. (And no - she didn't even bring a polar bear back for us).

Magnetic chess set with internal sliding drawer. Our magnetic sets have come a long way in the last few years. This compact little magnetic chess set is really super. Such tiny but well-formed pieces with such excellent detail! They are magnetised to such a high degree of quality that the set can easily be turned upside down, knocked, jostled - and the pieces on this magnetic chess set stay in place. Yet, the pieces can still easily be moved from square to square without any discernable drag from the magnets. The board is thick, impressive and highly glossed. We think highly of this little travel set range (other sizes follow) which measures just 5 inches by 5 inches.

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.
