Chess at Toyfair 2014

The New York Toyfair – February 2014.

Chess and the Toy Fair (2014)

Early this month was the annual Toyfair at the Jacob Javits center in New York. I go to the toyfair each year and it is a great time to see what is new from various manufacturers and distributors, as well as interesting new ideas as they are developed.

Of course, the toy fair is about a whole lot more than chess, and i’m allowed to take a peek at all that too. I can see literally thousands of new toys from suppliers big and small. It’s …

Your Move Chess & Games in the News

Our chess store was in the news, and other cool things!

It’s been a busy month here at Your Move Chess & Games. We’ve been slowly cleaning up and recovering from the holiday madness, and it brings us to a time of reflection of where we are, what our plans are, and how we can make things different (and hopefully better).

The process was interrupted a little bit when there was a request from a local newspaper, The Massapequa Observer, came to do a little piece on our chess store.

We’ve actually been in the news several times …

Chess Sets from around the World (Part 3: Poland)

I’d like to conclude the first part of my chess sets from around the world series with a little bit about Eastern Europe. I think that many of us think of Russia and Slavic nations when we think about chess and that is with good reason. Eastern Europe has a rich tradition with chess, and some of the world’s greatest chess players grew up in this region.

Surprisingly, it’s been over a decade since we imported any items from Russia itself – instead a huge array of chess products come from Poland, many with that distinct Eastern European design.

Chess Sets from around the World (Part 1: England, Spain)

I had some great feedback on my post on Chess Sets made in America, and even found a few new manufacturers that offer unique and unusual chess items – so I might very well need to update that post in the future!

In the meantime, since I wrote about chess sets here in the States, I thought it would be worth writing a little bit about where the chess sets we do have come from. Here’s a quick hint: Not all of them come from China!

This week’s question: Where do Chess Sets come from / Are certain chess sets …
