What's Happening at Straight Up Chess?

Here are some new products and options:
  • I have updated my Festival list for 2015. At least what I have planned so far.
  • Now order boards for 2" to 4.5" chess pieces. Once you find the board and frame you like, you will see the option for size. The 3" boards and some of the 2" and 2.5" boards are normally always in stock. The other sizes are made to order and it will take 1 to 3 weeks for delivery.
  • Along with the larger chess boards, we are also offering larger chess pieces. We have added some Theme sets and very nice luxury chess pieces up to 4.5". Watch for more options down the road.
