American Chess Equipment is dedicated to producing as many products here in the USA as possible. We take the "American" in American Chess Equipment seriously. We would like to introduce our new MousePad chess boards with 1/16" backing. They have Rosewood squares with Black notation and outlines. These boards have the thickness of the vinyl chess boards but all the benefits of the MousePad Chess boards. These board are like if a Silicone chess board and a vinyl chess board got together and had kids.
These benefits include:
- No board memory. You can fold, roll, or just mangle the boards and they will lay flat
- MousePad chess boards extend the life of your weighted chess sets. With vinyl chess boards it is as if you are banging the pieces on the tabletop. These boards offer a cushion to keep the weights from loosening up.
- Tournament Regulation size. This board is made for the 3.75" king tournament chess pieces. Conforms to both World FIDE and USCF regulations.
- The chess board dimensions is 20" with 2.25" squares.
- You can travel with these without having to carry around a 23" wide wood board and still have your pieces look great.
This is a nice chess board that we made for the tournament chess player. Chess players want something new and exciting. You will see these at the New York City Scholastic Championships and the USATE in Parsippany, NJ. These boards will be available in limited quantities until we figure out which ones sell best. Get yours fast!
