One of the signature games of the mind, chess continues to entertain and perplex players the world over. A seemingly infinite variety of strategies layered over comparatively simple rules make the games readily understandable without taking away the usefulness of skill.


The popularity of chess ensures sets are often around even if people don't use them. Elegantly carved chess sets also double as popular forms of decoration. An enduring legacy of thought provoking play makes chess an excellent addition to an erudite home.
