Chess sets for tournaments The most common type of chess set used in clubs, tournaments and schools is a standard plastic Staunton set of 3.75, usually with a roll-up vinyl board. For decades, important FIDE events in the U.S. UU. (Inc.
The American championships, the candidate parties) have used plastic men, while wood was used in Europe. Our collection of chess games for tournaments are authentic reproductions of the chess games played by GMs in different chess competitions. Whether you're a beginner or an expert in chess, all tournament chess players are well-weighted pieces and come with tournament-sized wooden boards. If you're just looking for tournament chess pieces, they're all scattered in the category Tournament Chess Pieces and Staunton Chess Pieces.
For example, a set of pieces designed for a checkerboard with 57 mm (2.25 inch) squares typically has a king about 95 mm (3.75 in) tall. The oldest chess games adopted abstract forms following the traditional Muslim sets of the game Shatranj. Chess sets are made in a wide variety of styles, sometimes for ornamental rather than practical purposes. Chess boxes, chess clocks and chess tables are common pieces of chess equipment used in conjunction with chess games.
We also have a variety of wooden chess boards and Spanish chess boards that are manufactured according to FIDE standards. These boards roll up and unroll easily for storage, and resist the toughest breaks, spills and abuse. The Player's Choice collection was common, but outnumbered by the USCF's special solid plastic sets at daily tournaments. The Marshall chess club had a nice plastic set on hand for its events in the 70s, as I can judge from several photos.
