Choose Your Board: Full or Travel-Ready
Our design caters to diverse needs, featuring two chessboard alternatives. Opt for the full-sized board, a single 22.7 cm square with a classic 8×8 grid, or embrace mobility with our two-piece travel board, each half conveniently measuring 11.3 x 22.7 cm. Whether at home or on the move, select the board that suits your lifestyle.
Contrast and Convenience
The alternating light and dark squares achieve visual harmony, with dark squares ready to be engraved, adding depth to the design. To facilitate ease of assembly, all engravable areas and outlines are organized on separate layers in the cutting files. The board’s innovative design includes rectangular slots in the center of each square, allowing secure placement of pieces during tumultuous travels.
Distinctive Pieces: A New Dimension
Our chess pieces boast a two-dimensional design for compact stacking and travel efficiency. Each piece is uniquely shaped, with engraved lines enhancing their aesthetic appeal. The set includes:
- White: 1 King, 1 Queen, 2 Rooks, 2 Bishops, 2 Knights, 8 Pawns
- Black: 1 King, 1 Queen, 2 Rooks, 2 Bishops, 2 Knights, 8 Pawns
