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.

  • 14 by 14 inches square when opened
  •  7 by 14 by 1 ¾ inches when closed
  • Magnetic chess pieces
  • 3 1/4" tall King
  • Set of non-magnetic checkers included
Limited Warranty provided by the manufacturer.

    Excellent Value, Good Quality

    Posted by Joe OConnor on 5th Dec 2018

    I was searching for web for a good travel set for days before I found this one. All of the others were either too expensive ($80+) or the quality seemed way too low. I just received this product via FedEx a few hours ago and I am quite impressed. The pieces are good quality without any rough seems, no defects, no chips, etc. Internal magnets are secure (not ratteling around) and the felt bottoms secure, no wrinkles and cover the entire bottom of the piece. The board lays flat when opened, no wobbles. The magnets are strong and hold the pieces well so you can move the board without upsetting the game (you can even carry it upside down). The size is perfect for travel but large enough that it's playable, unlike many travel sets that are too tiny to easily play. This is just the PERFECT travel set at an EXCELLENT price! Well done.

    Fir the money this is a great set. Pieces stay in place and a good size to play with. Down side, storage of pieces inside the case works but they rattle when traveling.

    This is the best travel set I have ever encountered. Large pieces and room to play.

    High quality for the price.

    Lowest cost of similar products but higher quality and better than chess sets costing a lot more.

    The set is quite large for a travel set, but is convenient, nevertheless. The board and the pieces are very well made. The magnets are of appropriate strength and are solidly in place.

    Magnetic Chess & Checker Set: Large Size 3 Stars

    Posted by Will from Lexington on 28th Apr 2013

    This set didn't quite meet my expectations. I was looking for something I could use when studying chess books while in bed. The magnets are of decent strength, and don't slide around much, but the pieces themselves are a bit underwhelming. A good portion of the pieces had 'loose' magnets inside that make an irritating noise. Also some fit & finish issues with the plastic. This isn't an awful set by any means, I'd just rather have spent the money on one of the analysis sets, or a travel wooden set, etc.In the end it made a nice gift for my brother in law.

    Magnetic Chess & Checker Set: Large Size 5 Stars

    Posted by Stacy from Fort Myers on 28th Apr 2013

    This is a great set for a very reasonable price. The magnets hold well, but not so well that it is difficult to move the pieces. This set is going to get a lot of use in our household.
