BUYERS GUIDE TO CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE CHESS SET
The size of chess pieces in relation to the chess board is mostly a matter of personal taste. Tournament play is the exception since very clear specifications are given for piece sizes and boards. ECF (English Chess Federation) equipment standards are outlined in their rules and are covered in another article we have written. For chess pieces, ECF specifies a King that measures between 3 3/8" to 4 1/2" with a base diameter of 40-50% of the height. The proper square size for a set of good Staunton chess pieces is such that the width of the base of the King should be 78% of the width of a square. So, divide the King's base diameter by 0.78 and you get the proper square size. We hope this helps you choose the perfect chess set, should you need any additional help feel free to contact us.

Most Recent Feedback
I felt compelled to write a short note to you to thank you so much for Deluxe Chess Set and board that you sent to me. Being an ex-chess player I have some idea of classic sets and quality. It was for my partner's son who has just graduated as a Doctor from the University of Oxford after six years of study.
I sourced you on the internet and required next day delivery. I was delighted with everything from your immediate response to my e-mail inquiry, your handling of my purchase, through to the ultimate timely delivery of the excellent set. It is so unusual these days to get such a personal service. This testimonial would not be complete without a mention of the price. Seemingly on the basis of my obvious disappointment that you had sold out of my chosen set, you offered a substantial upgrade for the same price. I got the Rolls Royce when I could only afford the top end Mini!
Incidentally, your care in packing was worth it. Nothing left to chance. This was a fitting present for my Partner's son on possibly one of the greatest achievements of his life. I will certainly be returning to you again, hopefully when my partner's second son (of four) graduates next year. Oh, and possibly for some books etc when I need to brush up on my own skills a little. These youngsters are quick learners!
Thanks again. Adrian
