This is the chess set with magnetic pieces that enable deft vertical play. The 18" sq. sturdy wooden frame chessboard mounts to a wall like a framed picture with the included hardware. Made from high-density plastic that ensure years of handling, the classic tournament-quality Staunton chess pieces (pawns are 1 1/4" high; Kings are 2 1/2" high) stand “up” on the board—unaware of their horizontal orientation—thanks to a metal playing surface covered in canvas that provides 1 1/2" sq. black and white spaces as well as space for holding captured pieces. The board removes easily for tabletop play, while the magnetic pieces ensure the evening’s last move is preserved. (4 lbs.)
