Chess Pieces

Our chess pieces or sometimes regarded as chessmen still involve wood as the primary material. These chess pieces still remain and fall into the infamous staunton category that chess master Howard Staunton initially talked about and introduced. These particular chess pieces are of a smaller size but we at Chessgammon have ensured our suppliers do not reduce the standard of quality with these chess pieces. We feel an economy chess set should not only be functional but more importantly longlasting. Therefore, we have ensured we use these chess pieces in smaller size but not compromising on the detail and structure of each and every chess piece from pawn to pawn and rook to rook. Our economy chess pieces, just the same as larger staunton chess set still have a layer of green felt on the base to prevent and damage to the chess board.
