My chess sets: pound store magnetic set

July 25, 2015

This is an occasional series of postings inspired by a brief discussion on the flight home from Turkey this summer. The flight attendant saw I was reading a chess book (quelle surprise) and, just making polite small talk, said she also liked playing chess, saying that depending on whether other crew members played, she would play on stopovers. Later in the flight she asked me if I had a chess set at home…and that set me thinking. How many chess sets do I have? And since then number is, well, shall we say, quite high, I thought I would blog about them especially those which ‘mean something to me’.

Chess S1

As with another set, I am not sure how I came to have this set. I certainly didn’t buy it for myself, and suspect it was either bought before a children’s school trip, or, and this is my best recollection, I think it was in a party goody-bag.

0/10: not easy to use, fiddly, and to top it all, a white bishop is missing.
