Folding Chess Sets are ideal for beginners and long-time players alike. The included storage space is helpful if you do not plan to keep your set out on display, and also makes the chess set easily transportable for play with friends or while on vacation.
The Consul is a great chess set because while it is traditional, it also has a unique Eastern European design as seen by the opposite color cross and crown on the king and queen. This set is unique yet traditional, and is a great option for someone looking for something a little different.
This is a medium sized version of the set, and works great for either travel or at home chess matches.
