Inspired by the famous 1959 World Championship Candidates super-tournament where this modern Staunton silhouette debuted. The tournament was held in Zagreb, Croatia. The Magician from Riga, Mikhail Tal won in a strong field full of world champions, past & future. This minimalist modern design was a smash hit with both grandmasters and fans alike. The alternating colors of the bishops’, kings’, and queens’ crowns add an eastern European charm while arguably adding clarity: a charming cold-war era detail that distinguishes this set without compromising its modern, playable design. Incidentally, it was also Fischer’s favorite chess set.

Tournament Regulation height: 3.75" Kings, in Natural Boxwood & Ebonized Boxwood.

All Tempest modern classic chess sets include a hand-made black lacquer storage box, 2 extra queens, and 2 soft storage pouches.
