Chess is a strategy game that dates back to the 11th century, and it's been a favorite for people of all ages ever since. Playing chess is a great way to stay sharp, and it's also a fun way to bond with family, friends, and loved ones.

Chess sets come in all shapes and sizes, from plastic sets to wood sets to metal sets. The most common material is wood, which is durable and versatile. Metal sets, on the other hand, are heavier and more durable, while plastic sets are lighter and more affordable.

When testing chess sets, we evaluate construction, including how sturdy the board is, how durable the pieces are, and how heavy the set is. We also evaluate game play, including how easy it is for players to move pieces across the board and how complex the pieces are. Finally, we evaluate price, which can vary based on materials, construction, size, and brand.

Our top pick is the Manhattan Chess Set, which is made of wood and comes with a plastic carrying case. It's durable, lightweight, and reasonably priced.

DGT Centaur- New Revolutionary Chess Computer - Digital Electronic Chess Set

DGT Centaur- New Chess Revolutionary Computer

by DGT

Impressive looking weighted pieces and on board lighted display within the squares themselves

We liked how the DGT Centaur's digital chess computer was programmed to adjust to your level of play. Beginners and casual players will get help as they learn to play, while seasoned players will enjoy the chess computer's detailed analysis, which highlights the best moves and tells why. The chess computer is also compatible with tablets and smartphones, so you can view your games from anywhere. The downsides of the Centaur were that it's large and difficult to setup, and it only supports two chess boards at a time.

StonKraft Brass Chess Board Game Set with 100% Brass Chess Pieces Chessmen Coins (12

StonKraft Brass Chess Board Game Set with 100% Chess Brass Pieces Chessmen Coins (12" x 12" Inches)

by StonKraft

This product is 100% handmade by skilled Artisans. We support Artisans and want to conserve the arts & crafts of old times.

The StonKraft Brass Chess Set is a handsome and well-made board, and it's among the largest boards we've seen. The brass pieces are attractive and weigh about as much as our former top pick, the Fischer Solid Brass Chess Set. Unlike the Fischer set, however, the StonKraft pieces are not weighted. (The Fischer set's pieces are heavier and heavier as you move up the ranks, so it's ideal for teaching chess to children.) Both sets feature solid brass bases, and the Fischer set's pieces have black felt pads on the bottoms, so they don't scratch the chessboard. The Fischer set's pieces are slightly smaller than the StonKraft pieces, but both are large enough to be seen easily by your opponent. The Fischer set also costs about $50 less, but the StonKraft set's larger size and brass pieces are worth the extra money.

Egyptian Chess Set

CHH Egyptian Chess Set

by Flat River Group

King measures approximately 3 inches tall

The Egyptian Chess Set by Manhattan Toy is a great set at an affordable price. The board is flat and made of walnut wood, and the pieces are solid plastic with rich detailing. The board comes with 56 chess pieces, and each piece is labeled with an Egyptian hieroglyphic. The pieces are solid and easy to maneuver, and the board is large enough to allow play with multiple players. The board is sturdy enough to withstand the play of active children, but it's light enough to easily move between homes. The board is slightly curved, so the pieces don't roll around as easily, but the board is small enough to easily fit in a diaper bag or backpack. The pieces are colorful and eye-catching, and the set comes with a drawstring bag to keep the pieces organized when not in use. The pieces have a smooth, hard plastic surface, so they're easy for kids as young as 3 to play with, but older kids will enjoy the challenge of playing with the pieces. The set comes with a rule booklet, but it's a little outdated, so it's best to learn the rules by playing with a friend. Overall, this is a great chess set for kids and a fun prop for a board game parlor.

The Renaissance Knight Chess Set is a great family board game, and it's a fun way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy day. The chess pieces are beautifully made, and the gameboard is sturdy. The game itself is simple: you move your knight around the board, capturing pieces along the way. Once I figured out how to move the knight, the game was pretty easy, although there are some rules that are a bit confusing, such as the fact that your knight cannot move backwards, and that your opponent's knight can move into one of your squares. The game comes with a guide booklet that explains the beginner's moves, although it doesn't explain the more advanced moves. Overall, the Renaissance Knight Chess Set is a lot of fun, and it's a great way to spend time together as a family, and it's even fun for adults to play.
