The Reykjavik Series Plastic Chess Pieces - 3.75" KingProduct Code: MENREY375
The House of Staunton is proud to offer the Reykjavik II Series Plastic Chess set. A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 3.75" King with a 1.75" diameter base and is very heavily weighted.
The design of the Reykjavik II Chess set is an exact reproduction of the Chess set used by the legendary American Grandmaster Bobby Fischer when he won the 1972 World Chess Championship against the reigning World Champion Grandmaster Boris Spassky in Reykjavik, Iceland.
History of the Chess Pieces
The Chess set has been designed to withstand years of use (and abuse), as it lacks many of the ornate details commonly found on Chess Sets that can be susceptible to damage in the heat of battle. For example, the Chess set features reinforced Pawn collars and oversized Rook ramparts for unmatched durability. The Reykjavik II Series Chess set is ideal for those that are interested in both the historical importance of the game of Chess, as well as those looking for an attractive Chess set that is both economical and durable.
These Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, 17 light and 17 dark (including the two additional Queens.)
THESE CHESSMEN ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR ALL US CHESS FEDERATION TOURNAMENT PLAY.
- Reykjavik Set (Blk & Natural) Review by Hrislov
If you leave them out in the hot sun, say on the rooftop of your house for 2-3 weeks, they become a nice warm, toasty color. Very nice.
