Our large Chess & Checkers Folding Magnetic Travel Set is a high quality plastic chess set that is perfect for taking on trips whether it's on a long vacation or just to school and back. Even though this is our largest plastic travel set you will find it light and portable and can be easily stored away in a suitcase or backpack yet a terrific size for a good game of chess anywhere.

The chess pieces are nicely detailed and have strong magnets underneath that are recessed so they do not touch the chess board to prevent scratching it up over time. The pieces will stay put and you can even turn the board upside down and they won't fall off. The case folds in half to hold the pieces inside and securely snaps closed and won't open up until you want it open. The chess board features algebraic notation on all sides, a nice feature that most travel sets don't have.

Some advantages that our plastic travel chess set has over wood is that it's weather proof and it won't crack or warp like wood travel chess sets can do over time. It's much lighter in weight and more durable than wood and the board is screen printed metal so it has better magnetic properties compared to a wood surface with a metal sheet underneath. Overall, we believe this is an unbeatable travel chess set at breakthrough price that you'll truly enjoy!

    Great Travel chess and checkers set

    This travel set is the first I have owned. This 14" magnetic set fits the bill not only in price, but also in size. My two grand kids enjoy it. I really like the weighted chess figures. I think you have the winning travel set.

    i highly recommend The Chess Store for all chess needs. This chess/checkers set is lovely. It is well packaged and came through without any dents or scratches. The chess pieces and board are great. i highly recommend this travel set. It will pack easily in a carry-on or backpack, leaving enough room for clothes and things like that. Personally, i see a chess set as a necessity.

    Sturdy set

    I love this checkers/chess set. Got it for my granddaughter. It's very well made, closes tightly and stays closed. The magnet closure works like a charm. What more can I say? Pieces are a nice weight also.

    It's perfect for what I wanted. Something cheap, but well made. I love the magnetic pieces and that I can store them inside the board.

    nice travel set

    This is a very nice set for traveling. The pieces are good sized. Having both checkers and chess pieces is very nice so that I can play checkers with my younger grandson and chess with my older grandson. You could pay much more and be no better off. Very good value.

    Loving this set! It is travelling with me daily for those spare moments to study openings, end games etc. Why I waited so long to buy this I don't know.
