Mastering the game of chess is infinitely complicated, but getting started just got easier with a chess board that s perfectly set up and ready to go as soon as you open the box.
Before newcomers can even begin to start learning how the various chess pieces move around the board, they have to know what squares the pawns, bishops, rooks, knights, kings, and queens all call home.
As a game of chess plays out, captured pieces are returned to their designated and labeled slots in the game s box.
The bottom of each piece, and the double-sided chess board, are all magnetic.
The game s design also helps ensure that every piece is accounted for at the end of a game, and that none of them go missing when it s being haphazardly stuffed into your game shelf.
It s not indestructible, but should certainly survive being swept off the table in a rage every time your partner puts you in check.
