Plastic Chess Sets

Our range of plastic chess sets covers everything needed for a fun game of chess. These durable long lasting sets are perfect for school chess clubs, kids chess tournaments or to carry along on family trips. The vinyl printed boards are easily cleaned with a damp cloth – and they roll up nicely for compact storage. The Giant Chess Set is great for the outdoors – and it is an absolute kid magnet.
The fact is, most serious chess players practice, analyse and play on plastic sets with vinyl boards like you see here. Some famous chess players, such as the genius world champion (1921-27) Jose Raoul Capablanca of Cuba, once claimed that he did not own a chess set – he analysed ‘in his head’. Some less famous players, such as myself, of Canada, definitely require the plastic chess pieces and vinyl board!

Which One Do I Choose?

Boards: Our vinyl 20 inch square boards are regulation size and are used in scholastic chess tournaments and chess clubs across Canada and the USA. The green and white squares are the most popular choice – over 80% select this board. There are two reasons. Firstly, the green and white board was the only type available until relatively recently. Secondly, the green squares contrast well with the black pieces. The brown and white boards are more popular when sets are bought individually. Now that you have the facts, which one is your personal favourite?

Pieces

The Standard Club Pieces at regulation King height of 3.75 inches are by far the single most popular set of North American chess pieces. For many years they have been used in schools and clubs almost everywhere! These pieces are just fine for a starter set. The next step up is our Conqueror pieces – weighted, slightly larger with a more detailed design. Many customers who initially look at the Standard pieces upgrade to the Conqueror pieces for the modest price differential. The Conqueror sets are very popular as a gift choice for those looking for a stylish, durable and portable set.

Options

Our Chess Carry Bag is great for kids – pieces and board are kept in one spot that takes very little space. Use either the shoulder strap or the handle to carry your set. We now have 4 colour options – Red, Green, Blue or Black! Another storage option is the cotton bag in either green or red. In addition to these options, please see our ‘Schools and Clubs’ category for clocks and demonstration boards. The demonstration boards are not only for instructors – kids love to hang them on their wall!
