Straight Up Chess, one of the worlds most unique chess sets and now patented. As you pass by, make your move, mark it with the “Last move” marker and go on your way.

What's Happening at Straight Up Chess?

Here are some new products and options:

  • I have added a new section under Completed sets for the Beetle Kill Pine boards.
  • 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.
  • And for those who still like the old fashion flat chess boards, I have added a few. You can find them under chess boards on the menu.
