The TravelMate Deluxe
The TravelMate Deluxe skyrockets things to a new level in design and functionality.
This portable travel set comes with a truly elegant set of wooden, magnetic Staunton-style pieces turned and carved from Dark Indian Rosewood & Boxwood (w/ 1.5" King height).
The piece magnets are quite strong and hold to the surface well, yet they glide easily around the board during use, while the 8.75" x 10.75"" folding-board surface with capture-areas (and approximately 15/16" sized squares) is finished with an attractive, marbled-foil border-inlay and is coated with a clear-matte, scratch-resistant laminate to protect the board for many years to come.
The TravelMate Deluxe folding board-covers are specially hinged and hand-wrapped in elegant Imitation Ostrich material (available in Black only).
The TravelMate Deluxe is a pleasure on which to play, analyze, and compose, and it's also quite portable for playing & traveling in style whether by plane, train, bus, boat, or car.
In addition, this portable magnetic set includes one CM120 Disk Piece KIT for saving ongoing game positions when the folding board is closed and stored away (some minor assembly of the chess-piece-disks is required, and the instructions are included).
And it all comes in an elegant, custom-designed imitation-Aligator zipper-case with an inner piece-pouch for easy storage and transport.
The approximate shipping-package-weight for this item is 3.5 lbs.
And remember, the TravelMate Deluxe is handmade in the USA.
