Rectangular Pegged Travel Chess Set, 15 x 10cm
Travel chess sets are generally either of the peg-type
(where small pegs on the bases of the chess pieces fit
into a small hole to keep them in place), or magnetic,
which of course use magnets to hold the pieces in place.
The ADVANTAGE of the travel set shown on this page is
that the pieces are guaranteed to stay in place when the
lid it put back on, so a game can be interrupted and continued
later on without the risk that positions are lost. Also, there is space to store, either side the board, the pieces that have already been taken.
