Rolling boards can be difficult to flatten and remove wrinkles, but they are more resistant to wear and tear, while many bars have half a folding board in the back of their supply cabinet, as time and wear and tear can cause the two halves to separate. Chess has been played for more than 1000 years, and some form of game first appeared in India around the 6th century. The pieces of the French Regency are named after the Café de la Régence in Paris, one of the most important chess centers of the 18th and 19th centuries. The Selenus chess set, like English barley corn, was often carved from bone and tended to slender, elaborate piece designs.
Thanks to the chess house, their patience and understanding of a few emails back and forth, everything was solved. If you've ever visited a chess club or played in a tournament, you've probably seen one of these sets. In addition to large chess pieces, almost the size of a tournament, travel sets can have almost tiny proportions, and a popular variety of magnetic games is a small wallet-type board with flat disc-shaped pieces adorned with diagram symbols (in fact, this author learned to play in one of those sets). Chess had become increasingly popular in previous decades, and there was greater enthusiasm for international play and competition, but there was no standard set at the time.
Pieces with even simpler designs than that, such as a tower, these artisans take seven times longer to manufacture compared to normal chess sets. However, the Upright style remains a striking and elegant design, worthy of a place in the collection of any chess enthusiast. If you've ever watched an online broadcast of a chess tournament with live updates, chances are that the games will be played in this type of set. Before the World Chess Championship set was used in matches, the approval of the sport's governing body, FIDE, was required.
There are fewer than 10 people who are trusted to carve the knights from the official sets of the World Chess Championship. With a contemporary atmosphere, FIDE's ebonized design was designed in line with the chess aesthetic and with the corresponding black and white base felts. And while this demand is positive for the industry, it also represents a challenge for chess producers like Aditya. Such was the renown of Café de la Régence as a chess center, that the pieces used there, which were of a common pattern in Europe at the time, came to take its name.
