If you’re one of those people that loves a good game of chess, but wants to save as much time as possible by skipping the whole initial setup thing, you need to check out Preset Chess. The game that takes an afternoon to learn but a lifetime to master has gotten an upgrade with Preset Chess in the form of a CNC-routed hardwood holder that stores all of the hand-detailed rosewood pieces in the proper places when you’re not using the board or when a piece has been captured. When you’re ready for a game, simply flip the entire setup and push the magnetic board out where all the king’s horses and all the king’s men will be ready to go in their proper locations. The lightweight package measures 7.5” x 7.5”, so it’s also easy to travel with for an afternoon game in the park or entertainment on the plane.
