THE CHESSMEN: Deluxe Chess Sets is proud to offer the Reykjavik Series Chess set. A full library-sized Chess set, it features a 3.25" King with a 1.5"diameter base. The Chess pieces are hand carved by our master artisans and crafted out of the highest grade woods. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish. The design of the Reykjavik Chess set is a scaled reproduction of the Chess set used by the legendary American Grandmaster Bobby Fischer when he won the 1972 World Chess Championship against the reigning World Champion Grandmaster Boris Spassky in Reykjavik, Iceland. The Chess set has been designed to withstand years of use (and abuse), as it lacks many of the ornate details commonly found on Chess Sets that can be susceptible to damage in the heat of battle. For example, the Chess set features reinforced Pawn collars and oversized Rook ramparts for unmatched durability. The Reykjavik Series Chess set is ideal for those that are interested in both the historical importance of the game of Chess, as well as those looking for an attractive Chess set that is both economical and durable.

As with all of our Chess sets, the Reykjavik Series Chessmen exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining an elegance which has become the hallmark of Staunton chess set. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is unmatched by any set of Chessmen in its price range. 

The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens.

THE CHESSBOARD: The Standard Traditional Striped Ebony / Bird's Eye Maple wooden Chessboard with 1.875" Squares features Striped Ebony (dark) and Bird's Eye Maple (light) squares with a Coffeewood delimiter and a Striped Ebony frame. This Chessboard is 0.5" thick, has a satin finish and a beautiful moulded edge.
