CHESS SIZE GUIDE
Though we do have some splendid pre-selected chess sets available, most of our customers want to individually choose the pieces and the board from the many options we have. We have made this process as easy as it gets.
The most important factor in matching pieces and a board is the correlation of the square size of the board and the base diameter of the pieces. There should be enough space around the pieces, but not so much as to make it look too sparse. The largest piece is the king and its base should cover 72-86 % of the square.
Each product page of our chess pieces and chess boards has a tab called “Combine with…”. On desktop, it is located under the product images. On mobile screens it can be found under the “Add to Basket” button.
Opening this tab shows you all the pieces/boards that are compatible with the pieces/board you’re looking at. Then it is only a matter of taste which one(s) you decide to choose!
All the other sets (which have a king height of at least 10 cm (≈ 4.0 inches) and a base diameter of ca. 4,7 cm (≈1.85 inches) look best when combined with a board that has 6 cm (≈ 2.36 inches) per square.
