Travel chess sets are very popular with chess enthusiasts. Not only is the game of chess an amazing pastime, but travelling with the chess set provides a lot of benefits. Having a chess set allows you to play chess anywhere you go.
Many people love chess because it's so complex and requires hours of concentration and practice, as well as being much more difficult than standard board games. The problem is that as you get older you tend to grow out of the game and many people get bored playing the same game over again.
There are several main disadvantages to travelling with the chess set. First, the main reason you travel with the chess set is that you often have to travel long distances. Having to travel this distance just isn't comfortable for most people, especially if it means going without the familiar surroundings.
Another disadvantage is that travel is inconvenient with the chess set. This is due to the fact that the game often requires a lot of concentration, and the game requires you to watch out for where to put the pieces. Not having chess pieces to move around the board and keeping track of where the board is in relation to the pieces is frustrating.
If you are traveling with the chess set and have to travel with it for more than a couple of hours at a time, you will eventually end up with a bad case of road rash or possibly worse. You might also find yourself sitting in traffic trying to move the pieces when you can't because the wheel is moving. You can end up driving like an idiot and get yourself into more trouble than the game.
You have to travel to see many chess tournaments if you are traveling with the chess set. This can make the chess tournament quite a trip and take a toll on your head if you are traveling with the chess set for more than one day.
Traveling with the chess set can be a great opportunity to learn more about the game of chess and to explore different parts of the world. But if you are traveling with the chess set and have to travel long distances, these disadvantages will play a major role in the satisfaction of having the chess set.
