You'll always be up for a competitive game of chess or draughts - also known as checkers - with the traditional Jaques 15 in. Box Board Combination Set & Draughts. It's hand crafted from the finest quality mahogany, but it has a style that is understated and accessible to the chess aficionado and the novice player alike. The king stands at 3 inches tall and the chessmen at his side are, like him, weighted with a soft felt base to prevent scratching of the mahogany board. The board, of course, is a space saving inlaid design on the box which can be used as storage for these lovely pieces. Round checkers/draughts discs of the same quality are included and can be stored within the box board. Box board dimensions: 19L x 15W x 1H inches.
