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.

    Love the pieces

    Posted by Glenn Snow on 3rd Jun 2021

    I echo the other current reviews in that the only weak point is the low magnetic strength. I solved this by buying 1" diameter self adhesive round magnets from Walmart. This fits the base of all of the pieces very well save the pawn which is easily trimmed.

    Good Value!

    Magnets are sufficient to resist jostling around, which is good for my uses. The nice pieces and the locking board-case cannot be duplicated in wood for this price. The magnets are not strong enough to hold pieces vertical (or upside down) for my 14" board, but still more effective than I was expecting. The pieces stay put in bed even when my kids are jumping around.

    Nice 14 inch set. Folds up into compact size. Magnets could be a little stronger, but otherwise very nice.

    As Expected

    Nice product. Plastic, yes, but that's appropriate for a kid. Travel option a plus. Magnetic feature a little weak but OK. Good delivery.
