The World Chess Championship Chess Set

Own a piece of history with the World Chess Championship Chess Set — the only chess set approved by FIDE for the World Chess Championship cycle events.

This is exactly the same set that was used in the 2018 Carlsen — Caruana Match.

Debuting at the World Championship Candidates Tournament held in London from 14th March to 2nd April 2013, these chessmen are set to become the standard for tournament pieces. Made by World Chess to a design from internationally renowned Pentagram designer and architect Daniel Weil, these pieces are based on the proportions of classical Greek architecture and the classic Staunton design to make a set that is both distinctive and traditional.

Each set is hand-carved and polished; only 500 sets are produced for each cycle.

  1. I'm at the checkout … Mmm, I'll look on YT. for reviews .. and £426. ? … Maybe not.

  2. Why is there no link in the description? Is this still the 21st century?

  3. whats up with the music, some paranoid twilight zone sh

  4. And whenever you use it… the game is a draw

  5. Why the hell i'm going to buy an expensive chess set while i can play it online? And who cares about Magnus And Caruana?

  6. The music its suppose to show us that the players are no longer humans and the state of chess.

  7. I want the board like the ones they played inTata Steel tournament the wooden board was so flat (I heard it’s coz the board was stuck to the table for movement tracking) but I want a board exactly like that the thinness especially

  8. Most useless board in the History. Couldn't give a victory. All it witnessed was a draw. Huh

  9. Who designed this chess set… I know i have better chess set than that

  10. I didnt really like that set at all. The knights and the bishops looked goofy.

  11. It's not a very nice chess set, so many nicer. Why don't you work with Frank Camaratta again and design a set worthy of the World Championship rather than keep using this modern art novelty set? You would be able to sell a ton of sets, this set catches no ones eyes, it's non descript.

  12. Bobby Fischer would puke at the result of last year's wc event, and his choice of set for his '92 match has gone down as one of most beautiful & legendary of all time.

  13. sueprb thansk aot for the information sir

  14. Çok şık bir o kadar da pahalı bir satranç takımı

  15. Is the Studio set also weighted like the full size? Thanks in advance.

  16. Having seen this set around for awhile now…It has not grown on me…I don’t like the knight, king ,queen.I can live with the other pieces….But overall this set is not one of my favorites……

  17. I pretty sure Magnus would've played on any chess set.

  18. Don't buy at worldchess.com. This company is based in Russia and doesn't hesitate to lie to you between a one shot purchase and an abonnement…

  19. Chess board and picess price international reply me

  20. This little thing on the head of the bishop is smaller now y?

  21. The chess board which is sold as the so-called "official" FIDE world championship board is totally different from the one that was used by Carlsen and Caruana (compare for yourselves!): the board which is sold as the "official" one has a pentagram on one side (which the real official board does not have), and, most notably, the colour of the dark squares in the real official board is a lot lighter than that of the board which is sold as the so-called "official" one. I presume that the real board has walnut wooden squares, whereas the ones in the "fake-official" board are made of rosewood.
    I do not see why a board is sold that is called "authentic", when in fact it is not.

  23. Except that it’s not available at worldchess. Out of stock.

  24. This just proves the theory of function over form!
    I have seen SO MANY chess sets that look SO MUCH BETTER, NO-NOT not the ones that are better off used as art or decoration, but –YES – REALLY MUCH nicer sets that have much better detail
    and would EASILY be very, very WORTHY of "world championship play"!!
    It does NOT matter that ONLY a handful of craftsman are considered skilled enough to make sets for the "world championships" there SHOULD have been more DETAIL in the stronger pieces!
    The Knight is crafted very well in its smooth styled crafting ,but REALLY– blank detailed ears, no KIND of facial structure– the black knight at 0:16 into the video LOOKS MORE LIKE A—DOBERMAN PINCER DOG from the front!

    No one wants this set to look GAUDY, but, IMO- it was just TOO much a minimalistic design!

  25. i'd take a cooke set from the house of staunton over this overpriced crap any day of the week

  26. One of the ugliest sets ever,bishop looks like a butt plug.
