Professional vinyl chess set with sturdy chess pieces
24 June 2018
While looking for a wieldy chess set, I found this 17” x 17” vinyl chess set. Best thing with this one is that we don’t need to carry those bulky wooden boards, just roll up the lightweight vinyl mat and carry it anywhere you go. A size of 17” x 17” makes it suitable for professional players and at the same time its lightweight mat makes it suitable for kids too.
The mat comes in different colours and inscribed with algebraic notations to facilitate game analysis. Although, chess pieces are made of plastic but unlike those hollow pieces these are almost filled with plastic, making these sturdy enough to hold the mat even under a fan rotating at high speed. These measures from 2 to 4 inches, king being the tallest.
Apart from all the chess pieces, it contains one extra queen of each colour. Lastly, it comes with a carry pouch to keep the chess pieces safely. The only thing which I found annoying is that the mat is prone to strain marks, these marks arise only if the mat is not folded and stored properly.
P.S. I review products on amazon to help fellow customers in taking wise decisions and try to ensure that everyone's hard earned money get its full worth. It always makes my day to know that people find my reviews helpful. Feel free to comment for any queries.
