Demo Chess Sets

Demo chess sets are a must in every chess classroom, in every chess tournament and certainly a convenient tool to have at home for practicing. The demonstration board commonly called demo chess is a set designed specifically for new players, students and younger children to get a better handle on the game. Demo chess is a specialized set made with folding, durable materials. They are perfect for giving chess demonstrations in front of school classes, and anyone interested in learning more about this game. 

Nearly all demo chess sets are folding but some are magnetic while the others are slotted. The difference is how the pieces are attached to the demo board. Magnetic ones connect through a magnet which is underneath the pieces and in the board itself. Slotted demos boards, on the other hand, have little pockets where you can put the pieces. Both are convenient and it’s up to you to choose one. But if you’re really unsure, practice shows that slotted sets are the best for children as the chances of the pieces getting lost are smaller.

Demo Chess vs. Traditional Sets

The differences between demo chess and a traditional chess set are huge. Unlike traditional sets, demo sets are oversized and are designed to be tacked or hung up on walls, chalkboards and other areas for easy display. Instead of traditional 3D pieces, demo sets feature large 2D pieces which can be attached to the demo board for better approachability. In general, demo sets have a very distinct purpose. It is designed purely for demonstration and learning. It’s very useful for the presentation of various problems to large audiences but rather uncomfortable for an actual match.
