What's great about this floppy chess board is that it unrolls flat - perfectly flat! This floppy chess board is much thicker than vinyl rollup chess boards is made from soft rubber and has a cloth playing surface which is non - washable. Unlike many floppy boards, this one does not have the strong rubber odor! It measures 20" square, has 2 1/4" squares, and easy to read notation.

This generously sized board is appreciated while using my vintage Lowes Renaissance chessmen (4.75" high). However, the thick rubber backing has a lot of bounce to it which can upset chess pieces that aren't heavily weighted with a low center of gravity. The cloth top is crisply printed but the edges are not bound so I don't know how long the board will stand up to use before fraying.
Given the low price, I have to say I am satisfied with the product.
