FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

We are a family business that focus strictly around customer service and ensuring our customers have a fantastic all round experience. We are also the largest store selling both Chess and Backgammon sets of great variations.

A common question that confuses many, infact there is no official provider of staunton chess pieces. These chess pieces are named after a gentleman, Howard Staunton who put forward a design of chess pieces made with precision and weight to prevent them toppling over. Staunton chess pieces are all manufactured by skilled craftsmen in Amritsar, India.

This is the official Chessgammon store, we are also present on eBay, Amazon and ETSY. However purchasing from the incorrect listing will mean you may be purchasing from a 3rd party dropshipper. This makes it incredibly difficult for you to arrange replacements/ complain about any potential damages.
