Seriously, a beautiful board! The wood grain looks so real and is a classy touch! These are just a few things customers are saying about this re-invented mouse pad chess board. The wood design is realistic and the quality and style is undeniable. Finally, a travel-worthy chess mat that can be used with wooden chessmen, not just plastic pieces. Proudly Made in the USA, this board measures 20 x 20 inches and is .06 inch thick and conforms to World FIDE and United States Chess Federation tournament regulation standards. Widely used alphanumeric notation is included along the sides of the board to record a player's moves. Mouse pad chess boards are quickly becoming a favorite among chess enthusiasts because they have a soft surface with a thicker board than a vinyl or silicone chess mat, they always lay flat, and they do not slide around due to the grippy bottom. Because the board doesn't slide around during play, this type of board is preferred by fast chess players for rapid chess, blitz chess, and bullet chess when less time than normal tournament play is allotted to the players.  Time is shorter, chess moves are rapid, and a board that slides can send the pieces flying. The padded surface of the board also extends the life of weighted chess pieces.  The board can be rolled-up to fit inside a chess bag, or it can be folded and stashed in a back pack without keeping a crease.

The eye candy of mouse pads.

Distinctive, practical, they travel well and resist creasing, you get what you pay for.

Wood grain mouse pad

I ordered the wenge, light wood and rosewood board and I couldn’t be happier with the quality and colors. Absolutely beautiful! Lays perfectly flat with no wrinkles. I plan on ordered a 2nd one to keep at home in pristine condition, the other for travel. Try this board, you won’t be disappointed.

Cool variety!

I really like the simulated wood mousepad boards! What a nice change from the standard solid colored squares. Nice to have an illusion of a wood board when you can’t or don’t want to haul your real wood board out. A great and fun change! High quality as well! 2.25 in. sq.

Even better than expected!

Arrived with a couple creases from shipping; the creases smoothed out almost immediately after rolling it out. The board lies totally flat now. The wenge, lightwood, and rosewood pattern is lovely. I expected the wood squares to be printed identically but they're all distinct, giving it a very real look. I was also concerned that the felted bottoms of my WE Ultimates would pull or drag on the fabric surface, but they don't. I tried some old pieces with torn-up felted paper bottoms, and even they slide smoothly without catching. The coordinates in contrasting color along the border stand out and are easy to read even for someone with eyes as bad as mine. Definitely a solid purchase!

Elegant and soothing-looking board

I recently purchase a set of Euro Series chess pieces and wanted a board that matched the wood looks of the pieces. After much tinkering I went for the Walnut & Maple board. I was a bit disappointed when I received it because the dark squares are slightly lighter than in the picture, but after I placed the pieces on it I realized it was their perfect companion. The dark pieces on my set are very dark, and the lighter dark squares of the board make for a very nice contrast that allow my eyes to rest while playing. I played my first game on it last night and I was very glad with the overall appearance of the set (pieces + board) and how my eyes felt during the game. Quality is top notch!
