Product Description

A solid wooden folding chess set with classic chess pieces and a European stained board. The pattern on the chess board has been created with a combination of wood burning and staining. The set has a really nice weight to it and feels tactile to hold in the hands. A classic Polish design that is not too ornate. The pieces are fashioned in a basic Staunton style and are moderately weighted. Superb value for money for a set that's been made in Europe.

A beautiful chess set that is pleasing to the eye and the feels great in the hands. Sourced in the EU and imported to the UK by Regency Chess.

"Really pleased with the set and the service given by your staff"

S Abbott, 21st September 2021

"Very nice chess set. Happy with the cost and what I got for the money. Proper wooden chess set at a reasonable price. The only step up would be if the set and pieces were denser/heavier and this normally comes at a much higher cost."

"Saw this chess set on the web site and it look like it was just want I needed. And when it arrived I was right the chess board was spot on the chess pieces look great but for me maybe a little light but I have big hands but soon found it was no problem. Much better playing against the computer or on line with a real chess set.VERY HAPPY."

"A really competitive priced Chess set to learn this wonderful game. The large sized Chess board and crafted pieces make this Chess set an ideal starter set. The Chess set is well made, easy to open, close and store your Chess pieces. The Chess board has a nice solid surface when opened to play. My girlfriend and her 9 year old daughter have very much enjoyed the new challenges that Chess has brought. Along side PS3's, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS's it's easy to forget traditional games. Chess definitely has it's place. Our brains have been pulsing, discussion about our next move has been heated, and we have had a few giggles when all seems lost but the next move has turned the game. Getting a Chess set from The Regency Chess Company could not be easier. Good communication, a great range of Chess sets, good honest pricing and fast delivery. I have been impressed by everything. I'm a very happy customer."
