Kicking off a game of chess typically involves digging through a mountain of pieces to set them up right. Not Preset Chess, which is instead ready to go right out of the box. To set up, just flip the box upside down and press in the thumb holes to release: each piece sits in its slot and sticks to the board magnetically to make things easy. When you’re done a round, place the pieces back in their correct slots and then pop the board on top to cap it. Icons next to each non-pawn pieces make it easy to remember what goes where, and the board — as well as all felt-padded pieces — are crafted from hardwoods to make the game feel more far more luxurious than plastic sets.
