Chess is arguably the most classic strategy
game of all time so we couldn’t resist making our own version.
All of the products about to be mentioned are available a la carte. That is, the boards
and pieces are offered separately. We offer two types of boards: basic and premium.
The basic board is simply a playing surface, 15 inches square and 3/8 inches thick with
the board graphics printed on top. The premium board is a playing surface with sides, 15
and ¾ inches square and 1 and ¼ inches tall including the sides. The board graphics are
printed and a coat of stain is applied over the whole board to give it a rustic feel.
The chess pieces are 1 inch square at the base and range from 1 and ¼ inches tall to
2 and ¼ inches tall depending on the piece. The set comes with 32 pieces, 16 maple pieces
which are lighter in color and 16 cherry pieces which are darker in color. All pieces have
engraving on the bottom that demonstrates what moves the piece can make which is great
for beginners that are learning the game. Chess pieces can be purchased on their own
or in a set with one of the mentioned boards and come with a cloth storage pouch.
