Our large size Magnetic Travel Chess Set comes with a hinged, snap-closed plastic box that opens up to a 14 by 14 inch chess board and snaps closed tight to store all the chess and checker pieces for travel or storage.
The board has 1 5/8 inch squares that are a perfect fit for the chess pieces, which are much more detailed than you would expect. The king is 3 1/4 inches tall and the checkers are 1 1/4 inches across. All of the chess pieces have magnetic bases keep them firmly planted on the chess board, no matter where you travel. However, due to the small flat shape, the checker pieces are not magnetic.
These chess sets are the perfect sets for new chess students or for those who want a very 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.
