hello,as you can see, I am a newbie here I went to Krakau in Poland for a few days (very nice city btw) and on the magnificent marketplace they sold very cheap and very beautiful chess sets that you can fold. It seemed that hand made wooden chess games is kinda of a speciality of the Polish? (besides the bigger luxurious brands)
So I bought this one chess set wich is a nice piece for almost no money, however I wanted a bigger chess set, but those sets couldn't fit in my bag. And since I had only 1 handluggage, I would have to pay extra for the bigger set to travel on the plane since the bigger sets would not fit into my handluggage.
So I've been searching the net lately since then to look for a bigger chess set you can fold, similar to the ones I've seen in Poland.
And now I got this question about a particular chess set that really catches my eyes:http://www.wooden-chesssets.co.uk/104.htmlhttp://www.polartcenter.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=9450005The same piece has a big price-gap on both sites...but the cheaper one is not available at the moment and so I would like to search the net if there are other offers of this game, because 225 dollars on the U.S.-site is a lot of money to spend at once.So, does anyone know where I can find this specific chess set, preferably online since I am from Belgium..
here are some pictures:

Try this link Team Belgium , & I won't forget!
I am still waiting for news about that chess board? ;)
Ok bro for now I'm in Paris, watch this spot, yo!
If you must have that particular set, it will be difficult to get it at the price you want. If you are more flexible and are willing to look at a wider range of folding chess sets, you can probably get a much better price. You can look at Google Shopping.
I believe this is the set. It sells for approximately 110 USD.
Wow, that's a nice board. That's a really nice board. I may consider investing in it...
