Welcome to our store. We pride ourselves on stocking a full range of products for chess-players, including boards, sets, books, videos, DVDs, software and computers.

All our staff play chess - some to international standard - and we are always happy to advise you on the products that will best suit your needs.

The products in our store are organized by category, so you can search using the buttons on the left hand side of the screen. We also have a search engine, so you can enter the title, author or any other keyword. And there is an alphabetical index of all our products.

Our products have full descriptions and most have photographs as well. If you click on an individual product in any of the lists, you can see full details.

All electronic equipment sold on the site will use 120V. An adaptor will need to be purchased to convert to other voltages.
