Straight Up Chess; Vertical Chess Boards, Unique Chess Sets and More

Straight Up Chess is one of the world's most unique chess sets. As you pass by, make your move, mark it with the “Last Move” marker and go on your way. Later your opponent stops by, makes their move and the game continues. Wall chess is a fun and entertaining piece of "functional" art that will add an element of class to any room or hallway in your home or office.

To purchase your very own wall chess set, you can use our easy system to order a complete set, including background, frame and chess pieces, for one great price. You may also choose to design your own custom chess set by mixing and matching beautiful chess boards, frames and pieces. If you already have a unique set of chess pieces and just need the board, you may build a custom Straight Up Chess board designed around your chess pieces. Boards can be made to fit chess pieces from 2" to 4.5" sets based on the tallest piece in the set.
