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.
