Enter this silicone chess mat. I can fold it up to transport and it takes up less space in my bag, yet it still rolls out flat. Awesome. I can spill stuff on it then rinse it off under water. Sweet. The size of the squares is great and the text is clear and easy to read. Right on.
Consider, though, that this IS made of thin silicone. Therefore, it's going to be more susceptible to piercing (don't play on top of forks, knives, or rocks!) Additionally, it's a bit more "grippy" when compared to your traditional mousepad-style or vinyl mats, so not only do the pieces not slide as smooth, but it hangs onto hair, dust, and other small particles better (although easily rinsed, as mentioned above).
I knew the pros and cons before I bought it. I still bought it. I've been very happy with it.
I bought this board some time back, and I have played on this board on and off, in the local chess circuit.
Its light, so easy to carry. Lines are sharp and looks pretty. The board is fine for casual play. Does not get creased due to rolling up or folding. So its ideal in that sense.
Some people mentioned the surface to be sticky, that's right, its made of silicone, the same material that probably your ipod/iphone case is made of. Thats the only drawback and the deal killer for me personally :) So it has a lot of friction, and if one is used to the vinyl boards where the felt padded chess pieces glide, this is going to be one nasty surprise. Almost every tournament player slides the pieces and this becomes even more important in 5 min blitz games. Also a standard 90 min game eventually becomes blitz in the last 10 mins...
So these days, I use this board only for analysis or some casual coffee house play. Not sure if its a good idea to buy one board for analysis and another for tournaments. I like to practice on the same board that I will use in the tournament. But for some people it may not be an issue.
In conclusion, I dont use it for the reason I bought it, I just thought the reader/shopper should know this. If you are not much into sliding pieces, this is good buy for you.
