Best Chess Set's large, tournament size 18 inch Athena wooden chess board brings an understated elegance to each match you play with it. It is beautifully made but isn't overly ornate to the point of distraction. It features inlaid, precision cut wood squares that are made out of Walnut and Maple wood lumber from the USA. The board is unusual in that it has no border around the squares, giving it a unique look. Furthermore, the board lifts up to allow for easy storage of the 32 chess pieces inside the case. The weighted chess pieces feel great in the hand and are carefully crafted for the serious chess player. These high quality pieces are made out of Boxwood and are made in India. In addition, they are padded on the bottom to protect your board. The king is 3.5 inches in height with a 1.38 inch diameter base. The total weight of this set with pieces comes in at a hefty 9 pounds. Please make sure to measure out our stated dimensions to see if they fit your needs before ordering. Comes in retail packaging.
