If space and ease to carry is the most important factor, this little magnetic travel chess set is the perfect choice. This magnetic travel chess set is small enough to fold up and slip into your front shirt pocket and carry anywhere. Measuring 7.75" x 6.6" and only about .21" thick, it weighs almost nothing but large enough to easily play a game wherever you might be. The pieces are round magnetic discs with a picture of the piece on top and are easy to move from one square to the next. There's a place to conveniently hold captured pieces on each side. Made of a durable plastic, it folds in half and snaps closed. For the price, you won't find a better travel chess set this size.
