20" Tournament Mousepad Chess Board with 2 1/4" Squares
Finally, a travel-worthy chess mat that can be used with wooden chessmen, not just plastic pieces. Proudly Made in the USA, this board measures 20 x 20 inches and is .07 inch thick and conforms to World FIDE and United States Chess Federation tournament regulation standards. Widely used alphanumeric notation is included along the sides of the board to record a player’s moves. Mouse pad chess boards are quickly becoming a favorite among chess enthusiasts because they have a soft surface with a thicker board than a vinyl or silicone chess mat, they always lay flat, and they do not slide around due to the grippy bottom. Because the board doesn’t slide around during play, this type of board is preferred by fast chess players for rapid chess, blitz chess, and bullet chess when less time than normal tournament play is allotted to the players.Time is shorter, chess moves are rapid, and a board that slides can send the pieces flying. The padded surface of the board also extends the life of weighted chess pieces.The board can be rolled-up to fit inside a chess bag.
Available in Wengue & Rosewood, Champhor & Oak, and Walnut & Maple.
