Please welcome some of our New Chess arrivals – and some old favorites return!
Every year, we get a ton of new chess sets, boards, pieces, and board games for our ever expanding collection. As of today, we carry over 1950 unique items on our website, with countless combinations of chess pieces and boards available.
While we cannot highlight ever new set that arrives, we just received a sizeable assortment of theme chessmen to our retail store – as well as the return of a few old favorites as well. We thought you’d like to be the first to see what’s new at the chess store.
2 1/2″ Gold and Silver Metal Staunton
For a long time, people have been asking for more traditional staunton metal chess options. After bringing in the 4″ Brass Set earlier this year, as well as the somewhat modern 3 1/2″ Metal ‘cap’ design, we now have a 2 1/2″ true staunton design. We’ve also paired it with an aluminum storage board as well for a chess set version.
Other New Sets!
We’ve gotten in a large number of sets in a large number of styles. You might remember the Wobble Chess Set – it’s one of the most unique chess sets we’ve ever carried and has always been a real eye catcher and centerpiece in our chess store display.
We also have a new pewter and glass fantasy chess set with super heavy pieces that show living and dead fantasy figures including dragons, wizards, and warriors. The glass board floats between two opposing castles with a battleground underneath.
New Theme Chess Pieces that arrived this Month
It’s been a struggle to get a good selection of theme chess sets in the past years, so we’re happy we found a new supplier to bring us some new designs and some old favorites. Better yet, these sets are less expensive than many of the premier alternates we currently offer – These economy class designs might not have quite as vibrant colors or precise paint jobs, but they still are excellent display and conversation pieces that can fill out any collection.
Below is a listing of some of the new sets that have arrived and are now in stock, on display in our chess store, and available to look at on our chess website. There will be some scrolling to do!
World War II Theme Chessmen
American Independence Theme Chessmen
Another returning favorite is a classic revolutionary war chess set design. It’s also available in a large, four inch version as well:
American Civil War Chess Pieces
Crusaders Theme Chessmen
Like the revolutionary war, this set is also available in a large, four inch version as well:
Robin Hood Chess Pieces
Medieval Knights Chess Pieces
Samurai Chess Pieces
Ancient Chinese Dynasty Chess Pieces
Pirates Chess Pieces
Fantasy Chess Pieces
