Things to Know Before Buying Chess Pieces


Buying Chess Pieces!

  • Once you have purchased a battle board it is time put the army pieces together. Chess pieces come in a variety of materials including marble, wood, metal, and plastic. Chess pieces are also built to reflect your touch shop around for historical, animal, or novelty chess sets that show what you love.

  • Wooden chess pieces are a adaptable option that works on a wide variety of chessboards. Most wooden pieces are hand-carved and coated in a high-gloss lacquer and can be used from one game to the next. 

  • If you are an eager chess player or will be playing in an official chess competition, you will need to invest in a set of Staunton chess pieces, which must be used in competition. It's also a good idea to invest in a chess storage box to store your pieces.

  • Metal chess pieces are another good option. Often made of solid brass, they are finished with a variety of polishes, and often gold and silver. Some metal chess pieces are painted to give a more detailed look.

  • Not all chess pieces are decorations. It is a good idea to invest in an affordable set of plastic chess pieces for everyday use and casual playing.

  • Know what size chessboard you will be playing on and choose chess pieces measurable to your board. Chess piece size is measured by both king height and base diameter. Pieces come in a wide range and can be as small as 2 inches or as large as 4 inches.

  • High-quality chess pieces are weighted to help with stability and guard against accidental knocking over. If you are looking for the best feel check out our selection of double and triple-weighted chess pieces.

  • When looking for quality chess pieces, look no further than the knight. The knight in a set of chess pieces is a good judge of the quality of the set. Hand-carved knights can represent as much as 50 percent of the total cost of the entire set.
