ARE WOODEN CHESS PIECES BEST?

There are many advantages to playing chess with wooden chess pieces. Some chess enthusiasts claim that wood has a natural feel to it and when playing chess the tactile experience is pleasurable and prefered by many over the usual club plastic chess set. This is an excellent argument for traditional wood chess pieces because the intricate detail in these chess pieces is directly related to the skills of the person who actually carved them. There are many different options when it comes to choosing the right type of chess pieces for you to consider.

 

With Chess becoming exceedingly popular over the years, it invites various niches of chess collectors, players and enthusiasts to collect the most significant chess pieces to play their game. These chess pieces are spectacularly crafted and are of various sorts, such as luxury chess pieces, wooden chess pieces, and ebony chess pieces. More so, there are, exceptionally well kept and well-groomed antique chess pieces–with each chess piece boasting of its uniqueness and celebrating its victories over the years. The same goes for chess boards which are made of clearly distinguishable dark and light colours to complement its pieces.

The aesthetics of choosing the right chess piece is an art that requires not much knowledge, but basic information on what makes chess pieces unique. Such as the base diameter of a King, placed over the diameter of a square on the board should be 75 per cent, giving it enough space around the edges. It should not be overly crowded or give a sense of isolation on the board, as it weakens the chessmen’s appreciation for the exquisiteness of each piece. Same goes for the height, width and general outlook of the Bishop, Queen, Rook, Pawns and Knights. The heads of each should vary and the bishop and pawn should be identifiable without causing exhilarating confusion during the game. However, all of this is practically a matter of taste, and what suits your style practically.

The overall criteria through which you should judge the appearance and cohesiveness of the chess piece’s design must include material, sizing, colouring, aesthetics, and whether these are collectable pieces or for either travel or home. There are various chess pieces in our collectables at Official Staunton Chess Company, through which you can easily distinguish which one works best for you in terms of travel or home. Moreover, it is essential that if you’re travelling, your chess set isn’t dauntingly heavily and exhausts you before your game. Also, it is paramount that while these chess sets are portable, it is not important that they are not as articulately designed or beautifully curated.

Jaques staunton chess pieces

  

 

Even though there are great varieties of chess pieces on the market nowadays, only one chess set design is used in official tournaments and that is the famous Staunton design. Named after the famous chess player Howard Staunton, this design is today's most used chess design all over the world. However, things have not been this way from the beginning of modern chess competitions.

In the 19th century, there were more than one chess designs used by professional chess players. This included St. Georges Chess Set, French Regence Chess Set and Barleycorn Chess Set. Knowing all the different styles and individuating the pieces with high speed and precision was a rather difficult task. This resulted in confusions for many chess players, unaccustomed with other chess pieces than the ones they used in daily chess games. Furthermore, because of the similitude between pieces displayed by all these styles, spotting the pieces was an even more challenging fact for someone who has not played with that type of chess pieces on a regular basis.

wooden chess pieces

This prompted the need of an elegant, yet simple style, that will not only enchant the eye but will also make the recognition of each piece a less cumbersome action. This is how the first copy was designed and released on the market. The origins of the design are somehow obscured, as for a long time it was thought that the one who has come up with the Staunton design was Nathaniel Cook. The story says that the sources of inspiration for Cooks work of art dated back to antique Greek and Rome. These were blended with the Victorian reality when the royal court and the church played great roles in society. The result: a game of neoclassical chess set with infusions for British civilization.

However, modern voices acclaim John Jacques as the main artisan of the Staunton design. It is claimed that Jacque has taken some of the most popular wooden chess pieces and synthesized them into an elegant, simple, easy to make and low priced chess set. There is also a version claiming that the Staunton chess set is the result of the collaboration between the two.

The design of the Staunton chess pieces promotes the king as the highest piece on the table (due to its importance, probably) with heights varying from 3.5” to 4.5”. The King is carved with a crown and a cross sign on the top of it, the Queen is smaller, wearing a coronet and a small ball on the top, while the Knight has the shape of a horse head. The Rook looks like a tower with crenellated battlements, the Bishops are determined by a mitre, while the Pawns have only a ball on the top. Each one of the pieces has its base covered in felt (or even leather in most recent, luxury sets).

Staunton design is nowadays recognized for its beauty and functionality all over the world and it is the only chess set design approved in official chess tournaments. Thus, if you are still wondering what type of chess set should you purchase for your first chess experience, then order your Staunton pieces now. Most of all the other designs available are for exhibition purposes and experimented chess players. 

 

The Best Chess Pieces to Buy

Your best bet is to search the internet for a number of websites that will provide you with the information you need. Today you can find many unique chess pieces. However, when choosing your chess set, make sure it is high quality. Look for chess pieces that are made from woods such as cedar, mahogany, walnut, etc. Hand-carved pieces are made with great care, and they are usually designed using natural or artificial trees. You should also consider the materials used to make your chess pieces. The different materials used include cedar, or other types of wood, or felted wool, which has the advantage of softening and draping nicely with different colours.

With these qualities, you should be able to decide which chess pieces will suit your style and preference. Some popular types of pieces include what are known as "weighted and felted" chess pieces. These are light and they can be constructed with a variety of materials, including cedar, soft leather, and wool. They are extremely durable and are very sturdy. Another type of chess pieces is what is called "stick" pieces. These are also light in weight, and they have a great appeal for those looking for chess pieces that are strong and durable. One last type of chess pieces is called "felted" chess pieces. Felting is the process of making the solid wood look like different woods, including mahogany and teak. Wood pieces that are felted are extremely durable and they are also considered to be very beautiful to look at. There are hundreds of options in wood, and they can be stained in many different ways "Stuck" chess pieces can also be purchased, and they are made with the same hardy wood as "stuck" chess pieces. They are often made from solid cedar or teak. The best chess pieces to buy are the ones that are not mass-produced. If you are a more serious player, you should be looking for pieces that are hand-carved, and pieces that are made with high quality, and durability.

The Beauty Of Hand Carved Chess Pieces

Hand Carved Chess Pieces

While many of the grand chess clubs in the world still practice the old-fashioned, large chess boards and pieces, now a smaller group of chess enthusiasts are embracing hand carved wooden chess pieces. While most people prefer to play on a larger board with heavier boards, you can certainly enjoy your own personal chess game while playing with your own hand-carved chess pieces.

 

When you begin to play chess, you will discover that there are three different types of chess pieces to choose from. Some are on the outside of the board, while others are on the inside of the board. You can purchase chess sets that are made with a single board or with several boards. In addition, there are many hand carved chess pieces that can be added to the game to increase the excitement and fun. One of the very first pieces you will encounter when you begin to play chess is the knight. Knights are very strong and dangerous, so it would be a good idea to have two on the board at all times. A single knight can easily be overpowered by two on the board.

Many of the original knights have large, woody, heart-shaped heads that add to the allure of the piece. If you are looking for something more modern, consider a chess set that comes with two miniature knights in pink and white lacquer. Chess pieces also come in different forms. While they are usually made of wood, there are many other materials available to them that can make their appearance more realistic. For example, you can purchase your chess pieces out of an assortment of woods such as cherry, oak, mahogany, ebony, and pine. When you are looking for hand carved chess pieces, you should always take your time and look around. This will help you find pieces that are authentic and the best quality you can find. You should never settle for low-quality pieces that are not high in quality because this is usually a mistake when you are looking for hand carved pieces. You can start by searching the internet and going to flea markets in your area. These great places will often sell used and antique chess sets. At flea markets, you can easily purchase an amazing hand carved chess set. If you are interested in purchasing one of these hand carved chess pieces, the best way to find out if you are getting a quality item is to test it out. Place your money down and try it out!

The variety of chess pieces is simply stunning, from the traditional to the contemporary. The pieces can be made of wood, plastic, metal, or resin. Resin chess pieces are a bit more expensive than most, but often cost only a fraction of what a wood chess piece costs. However, resin chess pieces are made of a higher quality than most other types of chess pieces, and thus they often command a higher price tag. Before the widespread availability of plastic chess pieces, wood chess pieces were the standard pieces. Wood chess pieces are highly recommended for both the beauty and the durability of the pieces. While resin chess pieces are available, wood is still the obvious choice if beauty and durability are important to you. There are a number of benefits to playing chess with resin chess pieces.

One of the advantages is that resin chess pieces are much more durable than other types of chess pieces, such as wood, which may break or chip from repeated use over time. Another advantage is that resin chess pieces are lighter weight than wood chess pieces, making them easier to move, and therefore a better choice for beginners to learn the game. In addition, resin chess pieces are typically lighter weight and more manoeuvrable than most other types of chess pieces, making them much easier to transport from one place to another.

As mentioned, the type of material used to make your chess pieces is a factor in their pricing. There are a number of different materials that you can choose from, including The most durable material used to make chess pieces is mahogany. Wood pieces are much heavier than those made of resin. With the lighter weight of wood pieces, wooden chess pieces are ideal for beginners to play the game without too much stress on their arms. While the mahogany chess pieces are extremely strong, they also have a tendency to chip very easily. This means that a person who plays a lot of chess will end up spending more money replacing the wooden pieces.

The one drawback to using this type of wood to make your chess pieces is that it tends to be a bit more expensive than the wood of most other types of chess pieces. It is also more costly than other types of plastic chess pieces. The most common type of wood used to make chess pieces is maple. Maple is an excellent wood because it's extremely durable and is known for its hardness. With the increasing popularity of mahogany chess pieces, it's now being considered to be inferior to maple. However, some people feel that it still has much to offer, which makes it a popular option for players in the world of chess.

Ebony chess pieces are the most expensive of all, but many experts feel that they are superior to most other types of chess pieces. They are also considered by many to be the strongest and most durable chess pieces, so they are perfect for the serious player of chess. Because the wood is so durable and also relatively inexpensive, wood chess pieces have been gaining in popularity in recent years. It's very easy to see why. Whether it's a novice looking to learn the game of chess, or a chess grandmaster, wood chess pieces are a great choice.
