With a lovely smooth board that folds to encase equally fine chess pieces, this chess set is ideal for travel. Round corners and carefully fitted clasps mean you could even toss it in with your best shirts or finest lingerie and not risk any snags! When you travel, space is a consideration but with this folding board you get the advantage of size and space at the same time. The board measures a snug 6×12 inch (15 × 30.5cm) folded with its classic shaped chess pieces also snug in their individual storage space. Being magnetic you can be tossed around on the high seas without losing pieces. But careful craftmanship means no rough corners or snags – it’s all smooth sailing with this set.
