Away Game

If getting there is half the fun, then this handsome game box should be a travel essential. It takes the classic game of chess and packs it away in a convenient, carry-on size, with tiny pegs to keep the pieces in place during turbulence. The set is carved from Indian rosewood by master artisans using traditional hand tools, which gives it a spirit of adventure even when you play at home. The hinged box includes a cloth pouch for keeping your pawns and castles securely stowed. Handmade in India.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Travel Chess Set:

    Bought this chess set so my husband and I could play in bed, elbow to elbow. While the size helps to accomplish this, a half size bigger would allow better recognition between the pieces and, therefore, their functions. The King and Queen need more distinguishing marks - it was hard to tell which was which. Chess is challenging enough without having to figure out the pieces! Finally, the set needs to come with playing instructions and piece capabilities.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I ordered 3 or 4 items and opted to have them all shipped together. Everything arrived super fast, in one box. I had no issues with packaging but this item did appear to arrive damaged. I believe it was in the making, as one side of the lid seemed cracked and possibly glued back together so it was not as flush as the other sides. Hopefully the box will hold up over time. This defect does not currently impede the container's function.
