A Strategic Game of Chess:
Chess Sets and Bags
For centuries, chess has been an exciting and strategic game that has been used by armies in the planning of real-life attacks, and as a competitive recreational game of defense and tactics.

Chess sets come in all shapes, sizes, themes, and designs, and often express a person’s interests, hobbies, and history. Chess sets are often custom made, and can therefore be extremely valuable and expensive. While these sets are beautiful, artistically crafted, and impressively intricate, there is one downside to chess sets—the number of pieces that have to be tended to. If one piece is missing, the entire game is changed, and cannot be played at the same level as it is intended.

Keeping track of all the pieces can be difficult, especially if you share a home with pets of any sort, toddlers, or curious young ones. Fortunately, individual chess pieces can be purchased as needed, and you can replace any broken or missing pieces in the event that you need to do so.

Obviously, replacing these pieces is a worst-case scenario, and it would be far easier to avoid the problem altogether. In order to aid you in keeping all your pieces in order, a chess bag is the perfect companion to any chess set, and will protect and contain all your pieces from rapacious little hands and teething pets.

Chess boards can also be very delicate, and often large and heavy, depending on the materials they are made of. One of the cheapest, easiest, and fastest ways to play chess is with a rollup chess board. Rollup chess boards are extremely portable, take up very little space, and can be used anywhere, at any time. With a rollup chess board, you never have to worry about damaging or breaking your board.

For those that are less worried about losing or damaging chess sets, a theme chess set can be a great addition to your game collection, many of which are suitable for publically displaying in your home.

A more traditional chess set is made by long-time chess set builders, Staunton. Staunton chess sets are classic, wooden chess sets which are high quality, modest, and durable sets that will serve their purpose well and provide a clean and fresh appearance perfect for serious players.

If you ever find yourself in a position where you’ve lost a piece of your set, fret not! You can replace any theme chess piece, and restore your set back to its original condition. This problem can often be avoided, however, and with the assistance of chess bags, you should have all the tools you need to keep your pieces in order, and out of harms way.
