Description

The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Reykjavik II Series Plastic Chess set. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 3.75" King with a 1.75" diameter base and is very heavily weighted.

The design of the Reykjavik II Chess set is an exact 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.

History of the Chess Pieces

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 II 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.

These Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, 17 light and 17 dark (including the two additional Queens.)

THESE CHESSMEN ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR ALL US CHESS FEDERATION TOURNAMENT PLAY.

Nice Review by Robert

We were looking for a nice plastic set for everyday, travel [but not tiny], and of course club use.... even better that it is in the style of the Spassky Fischer set, and here it is. The pieces are nicely finished in a matte texture. The "natural" is a good shade, not orangey or too light, and the black has a nice ebony look [especially for plastic], all looking good on wood boards as well as on the tournament roll up board. They have a nice heft, very stable with thick felt on the base and have a quality feel to them. This is a nice "step up" from toy sets and for not too much [we ordered ours with the "Build Your Own Combo" deal]. And I do need to mention the service during the ordering process was great. My questions [via the messenger on the site] were answered in a timely manner and the shipment arrived on time, and without a hitch. (Posted on 6/1/2013)
