The Silicon board folds compact and paired with a Quality Club Special set of pieces fits inside a backpack or the like – no need for an extra carrying case.
The Silicon board is a full size 20″ board with 2 1/4″ squares. You’ll notice the pieces grip the board more than vinyl boards. Players that play very fast chess might not like this as much. The pieces do not bounce as they do with a rubber board however – so that’s a positive.
Fold the board several times to store in one of the two zipper pouches.
Extremely versatile 1.1mm silicon chess board folds or rolls very compact and resists wrinkle memory. Plus it’s easy to clean.
And it’s available in a few colors.
Bags produced in high quality vinyl.
Add a chess clock for 10x the fun.
Will from Northampton, MA Says
An extremely durable and crushable board. It is very grippy and pieces will not slide on board. It must be rinsed regularly as it super-attracts any dirt, hair, pollen and other bits of “stuff” on the table or air. It can be crushed into a front pocket and then unfolds perfectly flat every time. The board I got had a faulty print on the number 2 and 3 and should have been sold as irregular.
