Wood Grain Mousepad Tournament Chessboard in Assorted Colors, 20 inches by WE Games - Made in the USA
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.

I purchased two of the woodgrain mousepad chessboards and they are excellent! I'll be doing business with American Chess Equipment again in the near future. 5 stars.
Distinctive, practical, they travel well and resist creasing, you get what you pay for.
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.
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.
