Portble Chess Set?

naturalproduct

Hello everyone:

Can someone recommend to me a good portable/pocket chess set to me? I have a couple friends at work who I discovered play and I want to bring one in for lunch hour and breaks.

Check USCF chess site, they have lots of great travel sets. The magnetic ones all work great!

What is your budget? What is the size limit you are willing to carry around? Do you want wooden pieces/board or just flat disks on a folding magnetic "wallet"? My favorite portable/travel set is a beautiful wooden set which unfolds to a 12" board. Comes with leatherette slipcase. I think I paid around $65 for it. I absolutely love it, and you can find them quite easily on eBay, which is where I got mine.
