Matching Chess Board Sizes With Chess Pieces Anyone on the hunt for chess pieces will understand just how difficult it is to find the perfect size since chess board square sizes fluctuate considerably. There is nothing worse than buying a beautiful chess board and elegant chess pieces only to find that they are later unmatched. Yet, finding the perfect size pieces is not rocket science. The general rule of thumb is that the players remain smaller than the squares of the chess board so that the pieces never overlap over the squares of the board. Of course, it gets more precise than that and this article will point out simple ways to make sure you get it right every time. Note: when we mention a square that is 1 ½ inch large, what we mean is that each individual side of the square is precisely 1 ½ inch on chess boards in the UK. Also, if that beautiful glass chess set or luxury marble chess set you bought has a total length of 20 inches, then the square sizes generally come out to 2 ¼ inches per square.
