My chess sets: dark green magnetic travel set

August 5, 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’.

Another travel set bought from Chess & Bridge in London. And, again, one I’ve used a lot. The pieces are more slender than the other similar set, but the set is very portable and easy to use, and so has been used significantly over the years.

6/10: slightly more fiddly than the other green magnetic set, but still a nice travel set.
