About this deal

Quality of craftsmanship: Look for sets that have been carefully carved and finished, with attention to detail and a high level of precision. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that the statement above is fact rather than opinion. Making our range the biggest was the easiest part, selecting a varied number of travel chess sets that cater to every player’s needs. However, making it the best was a much longer, more painstaking process. Whether you choose a handmade or machine-made chess set is entirely down to personal preference in looks and budget. All types of wooden chess sets should be somewhat durable due to wood being a hard-wearing material. Hand-making a chess set involves hours of work, which means they take longer to produce. That also means that they are expensive to make and buy. But, like any other hand-made item, hand-carved wooden chess sets are desirable and high quality. Machine-Made Sets Within this masterpiece, you’ll discover a specially designed compartment, lovingly lined with soft and luxurious velvet, ensuring your chess pieces are not just safeguarded but cradled in opulent comfort. To top it all off, the playing surface boasts a flawless, smooth polish, providing the perfect arena for your strategic battles.

Quality of material is so important when it comes to buying a wooden chess set. It will almost guarantee that your set will last for a long time no matter how regularly you play. For home use, you can be more flexible and buy what works best for you. If you want to play with a tournament-sized board, buy that. But if you want something with a cool design that’s more about style, choose something that suits your room the best. You can also buy an even smaller set for travel use, just know that the board and pieces will be way smaller than the standard size. Chess sets come in wood, plastic, vinyl, marble, and other materials. Choose a set that works for your intended purpose, whether that be casual play, competitive play, or home decor. You could get away with a heavier set with fun and funky pieces for home decor, but for travel, for example, you’d want something light. Plastic is not as durable as wood or metal, but is great for travel sets and for beginners just learning the game. The No Stress chess set contains plastic pieces and a cheaper board, but it works well for beginners. If you’re going to play often, you’ll want a set that will last through the years, but if you’re only playing occasionally or only using the set as decor, you can worry less about durability. The Man Ray chess set, for example, is awesome for home decor, but we wouldn’t use it for frequent play.Wooden chess sets are the most traditional-looking type, which lends to their popularity. Their material also adds to their high-quality look and feel. Using different wood types and carving methods gives wooden chess pieces striking and unique colours, such as Ebony and Boxwood and Rosewood and Boxwood. Introducing a true marvel of craftsmanship—a meticulously handcrafted, inlaid foldable chess set fashioned from the finest Sheesham wood. This remarkable chess set, a testament to India’s rich artisanal heritage, seamlessly combines beauty with functionality. Which wood is best for your chess set is really down to personal preference. Although the quality of the wood matters as it will dictate the chess sets’ durability, each wood has its own characteristics and features. Choosing the right one for you is something that is personal really based on how it looks. For a super nice chess set that’s high-end but affordable, works well for teens and adults, and will last for years, the Championship Series Set from House of Staunton is hard to beat. It’s a tournament-sized set and comes with 34 chessmen (four queens) plus a chess box. King pieces are almost 4 inches tall, making the pieces a nice size for adult hands.
