Your board should have AT LEAST 2 1/8″ squares for this set, though, or it will appear crowded. For 2″ squares, consider a 3 3/4″ King, you won’t notice the difference in play but it will fit better on the board.

Level the playing field. House of Staunton’s Mr. Sullivan suggested that novices begin with a quality roll-up board, which are often used in tournaments, then trade up to a more conventional wooden model. Roll-up sets are lightweight, portable and affordable (as low as $5). “And if you drop it, throw it or even spill on it, it’ll still be perfectly functional,” he said.

Has anyone had any experience with TheChessStore.com? They do business on their site and eBay. The problem is, I am not a rich man at the moment and can’t spend a lot on a set. $100 is really my limit and I need at least a 4″ King with decent size base to fit my nice board.
Advance with Staunton. While chess originated in 6th-century India, it wasn’t until 1849 that the pieces we’re familiar with today were standardized. Known as Staunton Pattern pieces, they consist of a king crowned with a cross (the tallest piece), a coronet-topped queen, realistically rendered horse-head knights, castle-shaped rooks, slash-ingrained bishops and simple round-headed pawns.

Please don’t believe for a second that this is real solid wood.. It’s not it’s a very very thin veneer walnut that is paper thin. I took this board and lightly sanded it to inlay into a game table I built. Guess what? The chess squares totally disappeared to a cheap particle board base. Do not, Do not buy this chinese piece of junk. Buy solid wood….THIS IS NOT!!!!
As anyone who has bought furniture from IKEA or K-Mart knows veneered particle board does not hold up well to impacts of any sort. The corners are particularly vulnerable, and in the case of this product, the packaging is not adequate to protect the corners. Mine showed up with corners that had slight damage and I am pretty sure yours will too.
