About our Chess Sets

Folding Chess Sets are ideal for beginners and long-time players alike. The included storage space is helpful if you do not plan to keep your set out on display, particularly since they sometimes include built-in compartments to hold your chess pieces and also makes the chess set easily transportable for play with friends or while on vacation.

Folding boards come in a variety of sizes and shapes, so if you plan on taking one with you to travel, make sure that it’s small enough to fit comfortably in your bag or luggage. They are easy to store and usually come with standard style pieces. Folding chess boards come in a variety of materials, most popular being vinyl and wood. The folding style chess board actually has an interesting history. The first folding board dates back to 1125, and it was invented by a priest. At the time, chess was condemned by the eastern orthodox church, that threatened to excommunicate any member of the clergy caught playing it. So one inventive priest came up with the idea to disguise it. The first folding chess board just looked like two books lying together! Thanks to his ingenuity, nowadays we have a whole variety of folding boards, and they become more and more popular!

High in the mystic Carpathian Mountains of Poland, there live artisans that draw deep from a wellspring of history dating back centuries, honoring the finest traditions in wood carving.

Chess The Game is proud to offer the Carpathian Collection. These unique and handsomely designed chess pieces are made of Hornbeam and Sycamore, both woods that are found in the forests of East-Europe. Hornbeam (sometimes known as Ironwood) is mostly white and used for intricate and decorative carvings. Sycamore offers a dark brown, smooth textured wood, perfect for the dark pieces. These woods coupled with the craftsmanship of the Carpathian artisans make for some of the finest moderately priced chess sets available in the marketplace today.

Dark squares are carefully prepared to a beautiful brown color. Lighter squares are left as pale natural wood and are lacquered with perfect finish. Board lines, numbers and letters are near black. The dark playing pieces are stained in the same color as the dark squares on the board. The chess board has a high gloss lacquered finish.
