Chess sets take many different forms for many special needs and come in a wide range of materials and designs to meet the individual taste of the buyer. Some people are looking for the perfect wood set for the occasional game at home while a collector might be searching for a unique show piece to add to his or her collection. Wood sets still rank as the most popular choice and range from simple Staunton designs to highly ornate pieces of art.
