WE GAMES listened to your comments and dramatically updated the checkbook magnetic chess set. We went back to the drawing board to create the Ultimate Magnetic Checkbook travel chess set. The main improvements were stylized designs for the chess pieces, extra queens, blank replacement pieces, and a third magnetic storage panel with images for the pieces when not in use. This way when you capture a black knight, you place it where the black knight is supposed to go on its magnetic home. You will always know where your chess pieces are and what position that game is in. By the way, you can use the pieces to play checkers as well - Happy Travels.
