Mazex beautiful magnetitc travel chess set features gold and silver chess pieces that look really sharp against the black and gray chess board. You will find the size of this travel set ideal for taking on trips whether it's on a long vacation or just to school and back. It's light and portable and can be easily stored away in a suitcase or backpack yet large enough for a good game of chess anywhere.
Mazex 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. The case folds in half to hold the 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.
The advantages of Mazex 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!
