Last week we paid a visit to a newly opened café in Bristol, Chance & Counters – the first café in Bristol to cater exclusively to board games, created by friends Richard Scarsbrook, Steve Cownie, Alex Ratcliffe and Luke Neal. It’s our intention here at Regency Chess to really reach out to the growing number of establishments that are providing a home for chess, and board games more broadly, within the cosy, vibrant environments of cafés and bars.
So should you go with plastic or wood? In general, the latter provides the most lasting value. “Properly kept it will last a lifetime,” said chess grandmaster Yasser Seirawan. But don’t discount plastic. The Play Magnus Educational Chess Set, codesigned by 24-year-old reigning world-champion Magnus Carlsen, has a modernized Staunton styling, a cool matte finish, and a nifty carrying tube. It costs less than $50.

If you decide to go with a wooden board, chess pro Mr. Dlugy advised purchasing the flat as opposed to the fold-up style. “Solid boards are simply more stationary,” he said. Mr. Seirawan agreed: “A flat board is much preferred as the fold is distracting.”

Terrific Roman chess set complete with small and large pieces. Made of plastic and from 1960’s era. In lovely condition with pieces, box and board as shown. Wonderful for play or collection. Look care…
If you are looking for the most amazing chess set you have ever played with, look no further. The craftmenship of the pieces, the board and the case is outstanding! I looked very carefully for a unique carved wooden set and realized the carving of the knight was what separated a superior set from an average set. The carving of the knight in this set is outstanding, the best I could find. Get the lacquer finish to avoid problems with the wood. Ordering was easy and the shipping of well packaged pieces from India to Canada was about 5 days, and it was fun to track the shipment. Chessbazaar is highly recommended.
Some very early chess boards were made of leather. There are also boards made of stone, but mankind’s quest for novelty and originality has produced an overwhelming variety of unusual chessboards. There are boards where the squares have become circles. There is a board with an undulating Dali-like surface with peg holes to fit the pieces. Also a board that has scalloped squares on which the pieces can rock and spin. There are even chess boards made of pastry, using pieces made with pastry cutters…mmmmmm, tasty!
Our research has lead us to conclude that the basis for this new design of chess pieces was the Northern Upright Chess set. Complaints about the contemporary designs of chess pieces were well established in chess circles. By starting with an extremely popular yet highly artistic chess set, Mr. Cooke was able to focus his energies solely on correcting those deficiencies. The ornate features that were most susceptible to damage were removed, resulting in a chess set that was durable and less expensive to produce. The diameter of the bases was widened for increased stability and the chess pieces were weighted with lead to minimize tip over. Before the commercial launch of these new chess pieces, Mr. Cooke convinced Howard Staunton to lend his prestigious name to the new design. Mr. Staunton was England’s most celebrated Chess personality and the unofficial World Champion. The Staunton Pattern Chessmen, as they were officially known, became commercially available on September 29, 1849 and quickly became the world standard of chess pieces. Their lower production cost brought chess to the masses and did much to popularize the game.

What i’ve figured out though is that’s not actually what they look like, they’re using the 4″ King picture template in the “Pieces Only” listing for the 3 inch set, the 3.5 inch set and the 4 inch set. Here is what the 3″ itself actually looks like:
For those looking for a chess set will appreciate in value, Mr. Seirawan and other experts said that thematic, “collectors’ sets” offer little resale value. In contrast, “beautiful old vintage, wooden chess sets will always have buyers.”
You can get creative here and alternate the color for each side of the board cherry, maple cherry maple… I decided to go with the maple on all sides. These are glued on each side and mitered with one another at the corners.
Choose your chessmen. A common misconception is that plastic chess pieces weigh less than wood chessmen. But this isn’t the case, according to Mr. Sullivan. “Unless you’re talking about a hollow plastic chess set you buy at a Rite Aid or Toys ’R’ Us, the vast majority—wood or plastic—are weighted with a metal slug in the base,” he said. Chess retailers often tout the fact that their pieces are weighted, but it’s a given.
