Considering how hard it is to find decent chess boards these days, I cautiously recommend this board as long as you don’t pay too much for it. It is manufactured by a toy company and you should estimate its value with that in mind.

For protection of your chessboard a selection of chess board bags are available. Depending on the size board you may find one that fits your board and pieces. The 22″ chess bags for example fit the 21″ JLP Chess boards well.
If you know the game of chess, you will also know that a chess board has 64 squares as in eight rows and eight columns along with 32 pawns. The squares are organised in two different colors, white and black.

Just an update guys – I have had a bad experience with TheChessStore so far! The set arrived, and although the build quality is excellent (weights, felting, finishing), the set looks nothing like the eBay auction above I came to find out from TheChessStore that they switched manufacturers and that is the reason for the different look. I am waiting for a replacement set that supposedly closer matches the one I paid for.
Well, the only thing I can really recommend is to never ever order chess sets via internet. You gotta buy such things like chairs and sofas where you want to try them out to see whether they are really comfy: So go into the next real chess store and let them show you their sets. Take a close look at the pieces, weigh them in your hands … it’s the only way to buy (plus it is the most fun).
We live in a culture of apps. Without apps, our smartphones, albeit powerful devices, would be stripped to the bare minimum. Even texting is an application! The ability to utilise third-party software on your phone is what makes it an extraordinary utility. Once, you were limited to the applications your phone provided, but not anymore; now, we have the luxury of choice, an essential component to customer experience So, whilst it’s certainly true to say we live in a “culture of apps”, it might be more appropriate, and accurate, to say we live in the ‘age of customisation’.
eBay is a good source because you can see the seller’s record of satisfaction and ask specific questions. But you can get lots of very nice wooden sets under $100. TheChessStore and HOS are both reputable, your experience sounds very unusual, though, no decent seller is not going to replace a defective set.

(Comments :Of the many chess sets on the market these imported by Pacific Trading have best themes and best detail in pieces, imho 🙂 Great decor, conversation piece and you can even play chess! More …
Perfect! For the prize and size, it was exactly what I wanted. The entire set is solid wood, both the board and pieces. I am teaching my 3 year old how to play, so I wanted something durable, and this works great. It is nothing fancy, but I wasn’t looking for fancy, just basic plain pieces for teaching.
Don’t miss out on these staunton chrome and black chrome plastic chess men with board. Men are double weighted and feature padded faux leather bottoms. Board features a beautiful high gloss artificial…
For $100 you should be able to get a pretty kick-ass set. Look for “House of Staunton” sets sold on ebay, not directly through the HOS site. They are usually much discounted for some reason. (I personally think a lot of the deep discounted stuff on ebay — esp if its shipping out of NYC/northern jersey — to be swag but what do i know).
First, you’ll need eight strips of 2″ wide solid wood in contrasting colors. Maple and walnut work well together, but there are several other good combinations. Cut our strips of each material to 2″ on the table saw. Measure one of the strips with a digital caliper and record the measurement; you’ll need it later. Your measurement needs to be accurate, so be sure to use a precision instrument like our 6″ steel digital caliper. Each strip should be about 18″ long.
I have a question. Between steps 7 and 8, did you run the endges through a jointer or otherwise true them up? Despite my best efforts, the edges after the second glue up are not perfect and I don’t think a border will glue on right. I’m wondering how running the checkerboard wood through the jointer would work, since the grains alternate.
I have a very nice 3.5″ wood set from TheChessStore, and I can vouch for their high quality. The set you are looking at from eBay should be a very nice quality set that I think you would be very pleased with.
Next, you’ll need to cutÂ the panel into 2″ strips, which need to be exactly the same width as the first eight you cut earlier. Set the fence to 2″ and cutÂ a piece of scrap material. Measure the piece with a digital caliper and adjust the fence as needed. When the fence is properly set, cut the panel into strips.
Nowadays there is an enormous range of chessboards available, from low cost cardboard and roll-up vinyl, to ebony and ivory, glass, marble and pearl. Some chessboards are made with such precision and craftsmanship that they are elevated to the level of art or artefact!
D.O. from NJ writes, “The chess set and chess board are incredible. The pictures looked great, but they don’t do this set justice. I can’t believe there is a finer classic Staunton chess set out there.”

We have recently added two new styles of chess boards to our selection. The first type is a very high quality Black Anegre and Maple board that has been produced with a high gloss. This board is a nice complement to our luxury Ebony black chess pieces. These two types of boards are available in sizes from just under 18 inches square to 23.6 inches square. The second type of board is a design exclusive to The Regency Chess Company. It features Black Anegre squares and a medium brown Palisander border. These boards are also finished in a gloss lacquer and they are also available in four different sizes. Both of these fine Spanish boards feature precisely inlaid veneers that have been made to a very high standard.

R.A. from AZ writes, “I can honestly say that all things considered your chess sets are better than Jaques, because you provide the same if not better quality, but at a price that is much easier to bear.”
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!!!!
