Our medium size Magnetic Travel Chess Set comes with a hinged, snap-closed plastic box that opens up to a 12 by 12 inch chess board with 1 3/8" squares and closes tight to store all the chess and checker pieces for travel or storage.

The magnetic chess pieces, which are much more detailed than you would expect, are ivory and black. The king stands 2 5/8 inches tall. All of the chess pieces have magnetic bases keep them firmly planted on the chess board. Included is a set of  checker pieces for even more fun. Due to the small flat shape, the checker pieces are not magnetic.
This chess and checker set is the perfect sets for new chess students or for those who want a nice playable chess set for traveling. It also makes a great (but inexpensive) gift or tournament prize. The chess board features algebraic notation on all sides and is made of durable plastic.

  •  12" x 6" x 1 1/2 inches closed
  • 12 x 12 x 3/4" when open
  • 2 5/8" tall King
  • All chess pieces are magnetic
  • Comes with a set of 1 1/4 inch wide regular checkers
Limited Warranty provided by the manufacturer.

    Excellent chess set

    Posted by Gary on 4th Sep 2021

    I wanted a chess set I could use on a sailboat on a windy day. This is perfect for that. No wood so I don’t have to worry about a wet hand moving any pieces. All the pieces are a good weight and the magnetic “thump” when you place a piece is very satisfying. 12” is as small as I like to go for a chess board, so it’s good for taking on the go but I’m still able to read the board in complex positions.

    12x12 magnetic travel chess and checker set s a good value for the money.
    I was looking for a good travel set and this was great. I use it to go over tournament games in my room. I no longer have to set up my tournament wooden board ad pieces and its light weight and easy to use.

    This set is sturdy

    Posted by Tom Grier on 10th Sep 2014

    For the price this set is more sturdy than I would have thought for the price. It folds nicely into a case that holds the loose pieces. A form fitted Styrofoam insert would be nice for the pieces. The pieces are minimal quality and non-weighted , but they don't feel as cheap as hollow pieces in sets that cost more. My only recommendation is that I would like to see the metal board lacquered in White and Green squares instead of metallic silver and black.
