Chess Pieces are characterized by six counterparts which make up a traditional chess set; namely a King, Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook and Pawn. 

A complete chess set comprises of thirty-two chess pieces, whilst some sets are supplied with two extra Queens, therefore, making a full set of thirty-four pieces. The most popular chess piece shapes are collectively known as Staunton Chess Pieces and are widely recognised by their design which has been in existence since 1849.  Our website features many styles of chess pieces for your perusal.  

Originated centuries ago, and having a multifarious following, the game of kings and pawns fascinates minds to this day with its tactical influence. Chess enthusiasts and admirers eye each move by the skin of their teeth, as it narrows them to either their victory or defeat in the most exhilarating ways possible. It demonstrates a lot about the character and resilience of the individual at play and boasts vastly of their knowledge too. The notion of having the knowledge and power to win over any opponent by one's immense level of calculated skill is often a sensation that chess enthusiasts divulge in exclusively.

 

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.
