Our green Roll-up Magnetic Chess Demonstration Board with pieces and carrying bag has red and black chess pieces with magnets so they conveniently and securely adhere to the roll up board.
Like our other demo boards, there is a dowel in the top and bottom with a cord so you can hang the board on a tripod or hook.
Using the magnetic pieces, you can easily demonstrate chess moves to your students without the need to slip the pieces in and out of cumbersome pockets.
I like the look of this magnetic board vs the pocket or slot demo boards. Excited for the afterschool chess club to use it! One piece arrived broken and several magnets were dislodged; however, Wholesale Chess provided excellent customer service. I plan to keep the pieces in a pencil box for protection when not in use. Im thinking about buying another to hang in our home to have an ongoing game between a father and son. :)
It's sturdy and solid and doesn't stick out from the wall on the bottom. Hangs from a generic cord knotted through holes in the top crosspiece dowel (see pic), so if the cord breaks it wouldn't be an issue to replace it and rehang. Green and white board contrasts well against maroon and black pieces. No issues with piece identification. Pieces stick well to board and molding flash comes off easily with a razor blade. Pieces also are thin enough to be flexible for rough handling. On the back side of the pieces as part of the mold is a thin boss about 1/8" high that houses the magnet, so if a magnet pops out go to a craft store and get another one. Magnets are glued into the boss and there was some "squish-out" of glue on one piece that made it slightly sticky to the board. Razoring off the glue was pretty successful to fix that. Portability of the whole thing is good with the carrying bag but putting in the pieces in is a bit challenging. There was a very slight blemish in the H8 square where the green and white ran together a bit but it's hardly noticeable.
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend who is kind of a chess fanatic. He absolutely LOVES it! One of the pieces was missing a magnet but the company responded to my email request for a replacement almost immediately and are sending a new piece out. Can't say enough good things. If I could, I'd give it more than 5 stars.
but the magnetic board easier to handle , get the stand too
this product is great for Re-playing lost games you can videotape your moves and reply it until you under stand it Think about what I just said
and you will give it 10 stars
It is exactly what I thought it would be. It looks great and the pieces move around more easily than on a slotted board. Best price I could find. Go for it.
I put the board in the room and the smell of the rubber can kill you. I put it outside, I hope it will be ok few days, otherwise its looks ok.
This board allows me to instruct whole class versus in small groups. It's perfect for our club meetings.
