This attractive rosewood color 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. It also makes an excellent analysis set. 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 a real wood color and patterns. Strong magnets underneath will keep the pieces in place 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. Two draw string bags are included to keep the pieces from rattling around inside. 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 value that can't be beat.

    goldilocks size: not too big, not too small for a travel set. Looks good. Magnets hold pieces securely; boards folds shut & stays shut.

    board came with a small scratch on the surface; kinda annoying, considering the $10 shipping charge

    My first board! The size is perfect for my needs. Even though the board and pieces are all plastic they have a nice weight and quality feel to them. I really like the rose color. The board folds together nicely and has a firm latch system.

    Very pleased!

    Just the answer to long distance chess. Small enough to not take up too much room and magnetic so the pieces stay where you put them.
