chess is a game of wits and patience – both which are qualities that the group here lacks, but that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy a good session of slugging out over the checkered squares board and if we are really going to let our brains knock each other out, we might as well do it in absolute style – and what’s better than to do it with this World Chess Championship Official Set? it doesn’t matter who win or who lose, at least we know we have a set of classy set sitting in our office. and that kind of makes us look smart, well, in a way. the World Chess Championship Official Set is the official World Chess Championship set approved by the World Chess Federation (FIDE) and the design was used in the recent Tournament in London, which naturally makes us feel good even though we are totally hopeless with the game (disclaimer: not all of us, actually). features include a 3.75″ (9.5 cm) King piece, and it comes in a sleek presentation box where each piece is individually hand packed, and a World Chess Hexagon-adorned 50cm rosewood and maple board rounds up the package. as far as style is concerned, this particular set is undisputed, but with that, it also comes with a rather weighty price tag. expect the World Chess Championship Official Set to set you back at £299.90, or about $455 in Yankee dollars.
