This unique chess set has patented pivoting shelves that swing out with magnetic pieces attached. It swings from its storage position inside the board to right in front of the board making for a quick and easy setup. There is a spot for each piece on the shelves making it practically impossible to lose pieces.

The chess board is made of sustainable bamboo, the chess pieces are hand-carved from India from teak and shisham wood.  It is small enough to easily take to a coffee shop or the park, and large enough to be your main set at home.

  • Shelves provide easy setup and storage and ensure no pieces are missing.
  • Chess pieces are magnetic and stick to the board.
  • Board is made from environmentally friendly and sustainable bamboo.
  • Pieces are high quality and hand-carved in India.
  • Push the buttons to release the shelves, the buttons then become the feet.
