Our Deluxe Old Club Staunton chess set is an ageless classic that for years has been a favorite with players for its distinguishable knight and trational Staunton look. The Deluxe Old Club is often displayed on the front cover of chess books and has been used for plastic chess set models because of its popularity with club and tournament players. Pieces are heavily weighted for stability while billiard cloth pads give the pieces a soft feel and easy to slide across the chess board. There's no better chess set for the casual chess game at home or the coffee shop.

The Deluxe Old Club Staunton Chess Set in ebonized boxwood and boxwood looks classic and professional on the recent walnut and maple board I purchased. The pieces just like the board provide exceptional quality. The weight, proportion, and beauty of the pieces encourages family and friends to want to play and practice more and more. The board was perfect by the way with its 2 1/4 squares and laminate wood grain beautifully matched. I also find the website to provide more highly organized and useful information than others. After having talked with customer service two times I vouch for their attention to detail and support. I love chess! I love the chess store!
Purchased this set in December and am I ever pleased. I have always preferred my old Drueke Players Choice set for tournament play, and have always wanted an affordable wood set that comes close in design. This set is it. It's an incredible set with high quality, and a joy to use. Couldn't be more pleased...that's two sets I have bought from The Chess Store, but it won't be the last.
