Where to buy a chess set?

MJo

Hello!

My interest is quite simple: could you please suggest good Interest sites, where I can order a nice chess set(preferably sites you have had any relationship with)?

Thanks for your time!

I suggest an official USCF chess set, in case you ever want to play in a tournament. You can find them here:

Try Ebay.  Use "staunton" in the search function to filter out all the goofy theme sets.  Even if you don't buy on Ebay you will at least get a very quick lesson on the current chess market so you don't do something silly.

http://www.wholesalechess.com on Thursdays they have good specials.  I recently purchased an official Chess.com hat, Chess.com t-shirt, Premium tournament (large pieces, heavy, very nice) which comes with a case, and a DGT Easy Timer for under $100 bucks.  Great deal.

 

Edit: $20 of the total price was to get faster shipping ;)

I should point out that 

http://www.polishchess.com

is a great site to really view the chess equipment that they have there.

Prices are reasonable and the photographic images are excellent, on average about 6-11 photographic images per chess set and a description to match.

I can personally vouch for the integrity and reliablity of USCF (2nd link) and can also assure you that they rarely have the best prices regardless of what you're looking for. I'm pretty sure the other sites here are all reputable esp chesscafe.com but you can always look up ratings/reviews of each dealer using a search engine if you don't get enough feedback here.

How about chess book publishers

http://www.qualitychess.co.uk

http://www.mongoosepress.com

These books definitely support the game of chess from every aspect for both the younger and the older players.

Estonia is not very far from the chess producer http://www.polishchess.com
