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.
