Our small Chess and 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. You'll find this size light and portable and can be easily stored away in a suitcase or backpack yet large enough 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!

    Nice travel size chess set

    Posted by Mark on 3rd Apr 2018

    This is a nice size. Not to small for adult size fingers. Small enough to fit on a bookshelf, while open.

    Very nice product!

    Posted by John on 15th Jul 2016

    This is a very nice chess set at a great price. The pieces are cleanly molded - no ugly flashing or parting lines from the mold as one often finds on inexpensive sets. The size is just right for travel, small enough to pack but large enough to handle during play. The folding board is well made and aligns properly when open. All in all a good product.
