“PLAYMOBIL” CHESS SET
The “Playmobil” set is a beautiful and timeless chess set of our themed chess sets collection. Unique hand-crafted, slightly weighted chess pieces which feel very nice and which are made from three types of wood: oak, sycamore and cherry tree. The alphanumeric notation has been put on light borders of the chess board which will be a big help for kids who want to study the game. The folding chess board has an insert tray which fit the chess pieces very well. This chess set, as you can imagine is a very decorative set for display.
Board is hand-decorated with a technique called INTARSJA – that is an old form of wood inlaying, start of that technique dates before the seventh century.
Thanks to this method, chess has a unique appearance and smooth board surface.
The folding chessboard is made of mahogany and sycamore wood mainly of beech wood, on the side of the board there are two metal locks in gold colour. In the middle of the half-folded board there is a liner covered with a green velour coating to store the chess pieces.
The simplest and most widely used form of chess notation is the algebraic notation. The edges of the chessboard is marked with letters and numbers. This is burned into the chessboard in this chess game.
Chess notation is an easy way to record your games so that you can play them back to study tactics, understand mistakes or impress your friends. Give the notation a try in your next game – you will see that there is nothing more pleasant than the eye-catching exclamation mark behind the move that wins the game.
