View Full Version : Board/Set Colour Combo's

15-10-2005, 01:11 AM
Hi ,

I am about to buy a chess set/board and want to get a decent quality set. In photo's I really love the black/white gloss finish boards with black/ivory finish pieces. I am just a bit worried about the playability because of the sharp black/white finish. Does anyone have any tips about colour combo's etc and their playability?

Any advice would be appreciated :-)
I am in Perth and I haven't been able to find as of yet a chess supplier with stock that has a good range I can look at. If anyone know of anywhere that would be great too.

The colours that are used for tournament boards (and pieces) are used for a reason. What do you think it is? ;)

Mmmm good point Matthew..... I might stick with the natural finish pieces and the rosewood board :-)
