The simplicity and elegance of a chess set means that it comes in a startling array of styles and options. Just as the chess piece sets range from traditional historical designs, such as the famous Lewis Chessmen to the culturally popular such as pieces depicting Game of Thrones and representing every era and culture in between, so the boards that they sit on can also vary widely. And whilst very often the theme of the board you chose is dictated by, and generally is purchased with, the pieces you chose, there is much fun to be had for the avid games player or chess aficionado to mix and match their preferred elements.
