Best Chess Set Ever Review

I was looking for a chess set for my kids, and a magnetic chess board immediately came to my mind.

We bought one and chose a slightly bigger magnetic chess board – I got home, and we played with it for a little while, and I just felt the quality was terrible. Although I can slide the chess pieces, it is not what I was looking for.

Eventually, I bought this chess set (best chess set ever brand) with a silicone chess board and here’s what I found out:

  • As of now, I can still lay the silicone chessboard flat on any flat surfaces (they say the board will lay flat always)
  • I like how you can just fold it and put it in a box quickly without worrying about getting creases
  • It has this tournament type of vibe with it
  • I love the size of it (20×20 inches)
  • Chess notation on the sides is also perfect for me
  • The silicone chess board can withstand slamming chess pieces on it – that’s a good thing… šŸ˜‰
  • There’s a bit of smell with the silicone chess board ( I believe all types of chess board has it…)
  • Dust and small dirt can stick to your silicone chess board especially if you don’t clean the surface tables
  • Remarkably, I like the chess pieces (with two extra Queens) which are heavy weighted “Staunton chess pieces.”

Every chess board is different, and it just comes down to your preferences and desires.
