A: Depending on the type of travel set, yes. Some travel sets have roll-up boards made of leather or vinyl with a painted chessboard on the interior. Travel chess sets made with plastic or other materials will lay flat. Q: Are magnetic chess boards good?One of the most important factors in a chess game is the design of the pieces. You can find chess boards with pieces that are handmade, with attention to detail, but you may pay more for that level of craftsmanship. If you’re interested in reducing cost, you can likely get by with a board that skips a little of the detail in the design of its pieces. Magnetism - Most travel chess sets will have magnetic boards and pieces. Weigh the size of your fingers, the size of the pieces, what you're traveling in against the strength of the magnets in the pieces. If you're traveling on a train, the magnets don't need to be as strong; train rides are relatively smooth. But in planes and cars with unexpected bumps and turns, a travel chess set with stronger magnetism is ideal.
