This is one of the best folding magnetict travel chess sets on the market today and it includes chess, backgammon, and checkers. This is high quality plastic 3-in-1 game ste that is perfect for taking on trips whether it's on a long vacation or just to school and back. You'll find this size light and portable and can be easily stored away in a suitcase or backpack yet large enough for a good game of chess anywhere.
The chess pieces are nicely detailed and have strong magnets underneath that are recessed so they do not touch the chess board to prevent scratching it up over time. The pieces will stay put and you can even turn the board upside down and they won't fall off. Inside there is a beautiful silver backgammon board with black and red points. The case folds in half to hold the game pieces inside and securely snaps closed and won't open up until you want it open. The chess board features algebraic notation on all sides, a nice feature that most travel sets don't have.
Some advantages that our plastic travel chess set has over wood is that it's weather proof and it won't crack or warp like wood travel chess sets can do over time. It's much lighter in weight and more durable than wood and the board is screen printed metal so it has better magnetic properties compared to a wood surface with a metal sheet underneath. Overall, we believe this is an unbeatable travel chess set at breakthrough price that you'll truly enjoy!
