Product Description

This tournament-size chess set comes complete with chess board, chessmen and a travel canvas bag, and it meets the World Chess Federation's (FIDE) height, weight, and proportions standards for tournament play. The low price makes it ideal for chess clubs, classrooms, and schools that are making chess a part of the curriculum. Staunton style chess pieces in black and cream plastic are the standard in tournament chess, and are a perfect combination of beauty, durability, and low price. Each set of chessmen is made of the best quality plastic and displays exquisite design and workmanship. Set includes 34 chessmen (two extra queens, one of each color). The king is tournament sized at 3.75 inches tall. The pieces are unweighted but are 90% filled with plastic with a collective weight of approximately 1 lb. which gives them stability than hollow pieces. Green felted bottoms help them glide across the board with ease.

The tournament-size chess mat measures 19.75 inches with 2.25 inch squares. The vinyl roll-up board is green and buff and includes algebraic notation for game analysis. We recommend the board remain flat or rolled-up when not in use to prevent creases that can occur when folded. The more it is used, the better it will lie flat during play. If the edges curl up, just lie it flat in the opposite direction to get it flat. The board can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

The traditional chess carry-bag with zipper conveniently stores the roll-up board and all 34 chessmen inside.

I like to play chess in the park - sometimes it can be windy and there are always folks stopping by to watch. For this environment it's good to have a larger board with heavier pieces. Sometimes I'll venture into the universe of speed chess where one doesn't want to spend time picking at tiny pieces, and crawling around under the table later to find them. It's much easier to quickly grab and chuck these pieces off to the side.

The pieces can definitely handle some rough speed chess, and the board requires very little cleaning. The bag requires very little cleaning and is quite durable. It can hold a few small things including a chess clock. When I'm riding the subway with it I'll catch people staring at the bag wondering what it is. A pool cue? gun? set of knives? If someone looks really confused I will turn the bag over so they can see the word CHESS written on it. They almost always laugh, and smile at me.

Overall, the set is good. However, the chess mat is quite thin and when received, it was folded which led to creases in the mat. I would suggest rolling it to try and get the creases out. The pieces are nice and big, although could use a little more weight. The travel bag is nice and light.

Not too heavy, not to light.
Some are black, some are white.
The pieces, I mean, and the board I guess too.
I would buy this one again, if I were you.

The only reason I am giving this a three instead of a four overall is that it was advertised as "solid" when it is not. I have a solid set (not triple-weighted, just solid plastic) and it is great.

This set is single weighted, so durable; and I would recommend it, but it is not solid plastic: it is hollowed a little on the bottom. Still durable, very usable and better than what you will get at any department store. This set is similar to any single-weighted set you would get from the US Chess Federation [...]

For kids, I prefer single-weighted to triple-weighted pieces as I have seen triple-weighted break more often than single weighted (the weight on the bottom of the triple-weighted sometimes comes out, and the top sometimes breaks from children's rough handling).

In the meantime, i am still looking for another solid plastic set...

This chess set is certainly what it is advertised which are standard-weighted pieces, a vinyl board, and a canvas bag for the entire chess set. What the customer does not know is that the pieces are badly molded with a clear plastic edges where the pieces left the mold, and the vinyl board has a strong chemical smell that will linger not only on the board but on the surface that you played on. The canvas bag is good, but the zippers are not durable. Upon trying a zipper for an inner pocket, I accidentally broke the zipper. It fixed it, but everything about this chess set says "low quality" and high profit margins for the company. For the 25 to 30 dollars that this set sells for, I recommend paying more for a set that does not have a vinyl smell and nicely molded pieces.

Another review the set contains a plastic cylinder to keep the board from being flattened -- that was NOT true for the set I received. The board seems to easily get bent out of shape. The pieces are nice.

My grandson (7.5 years old)for whom we bought this set likes it very much and proudly takes it to the many chess competitions he participates in. I have to add that there was a significant delay in the delivery of the set which was explained by the seller as "problems with the customs". The seller refunded us for the shipment costs and also sent a letter of appology to my grandson which was much appreciated.

I played in my first live chess tournament and I was surprised to learn that you are expected to bring your own board, clock and pieces. I immediately ordered this set which came just in time for the torney. This is a great set for the purpose of playing in tournaments or at your local club. I did not feel out of place at all with this set, which was also carried by most of the players with small variations. Some of the older masters had musical instrument cases or other fancy cases but almost all of the non-masters had something along the lines of this set.

Pros: Staunton style pieces that are of good size and it comes with one extra queen for each side.

The board has algebriac notation along all four sides. I played one some of the other players boards
which only had markings on two of the sides and it was pretty annoying to have read the letters and
numbers upside down. This board does not have that problem.

Great clock holder pocket inside as well as room for pens and paper

Cons: The biggest con is that the pieces are not weighted and so, felt a little cheap. I don't think that this is too important, however. I prefer a heavily weighted piece and play on such at home. On the go, weight just bogs you down. I played against a really young 1750 player who had weighted pieces and they were falling apart, with the weights always trying to fall out the bottom. I was intimidated by his aged set but not envious of it, if you know what I mean.

Overall: Great tournament set that is easy to carry and use. Pairs great with the Excalibur game clock, also on amazon.
