Manufacturer Description

For those that prefer the feel of a wooden chess set at an affordable price! The 15 inch walnut and maple veneer board is intentionally distressed to give the set an antique-style. The set includes 32 traditional Staunton-style chessmen that are hand polished and weighted for extra stability during play with felt bottoms to protect the board from scratches. The pieces are easily distinguishable and have a nice feel making them a delight for playing.

The Staunton design has become the standard for tournament play.  The pieces are easily distinguishable making for easier game play.  Knights are made to resemble the head and neck of a horse. Kings are the tallest pieces featuring a cross atop a closed crown. Queens are slightly smaller than the kings, and feature a coronet topped with a small ball. Rooks feature castle battlements, and bishops resemble a liturgical headdress of a western church. Pawns are the smallest and are topped by a plain ball. The pieces which represent humans (the king, queen, bishop, and pawn) feature a collar which separates the body from the head design.

Chess is enjoyed by children, mature adults, and everyone in-between.  Did you know that the game of chess actually builds your brain?  This is why educators and curriculums are incorporating chess into the classroom. Here are just a few things playing chess can do for you: 1) Builds problem solving abilities, 2) Improves children's cognition, 3) Improves verbal skills, 4) Improves critical thinking skills, 5) Preserves mental acuity, 6) Improves emotional intelligence, 7) Improves mathematical skills, 8) Teaches logic and efficiency, 9) Challenges gifted underachievers,  10) Teaches goal setting, 11) Teaches the importance of planning (and consequences). Let's not forget, the game is really fun to play! Do you need another reason to enjoy the game of chess?
