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.

    Just what I was looking for. Excellent quality. I take it when I go to the coffee shop and study. Much more convenient than taking my regular size set.

    I have not used this chess set yet , but it appears to be just the right size with a good looking board & chessmen.
    The price was fair & the magnetic board seems to hold the chess pieces quite well, allowing for play in flight or
    on the road.... * would have been nice to include a cloth travel case ( found a perfect fit at the Dollar Store...! :- )

    So far, so good!

    To be a fair review, I need to mention that the product hasn't been used yet as it is a Christmas gift. However, there were no hidden costs, the ordering process was easy, it was delivered before the promised date (without extra charge), the chess set looked like we spent more than we did, and I haven't been buried in spam after visiting this site. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because the set hasn't been used.
