Are you in the market to purchase chess pieces and are you looking for an inexpensive simple option? Plastic chess pieces are the perfect option for you and you’ll find them right here at Kaoori.
Plastic chess pieces come in a range of different shapes and sizes, so you can find one that fits your chess board. They are lightweight and rather affordable, so they make an excellent option for both professional and amateur chess players.
Plastic chess pieces certainly don’t lack competition but they still stand out and remain a popular choice among many chess players.
Plastic is one of the most common materials in the world and because of that plastic chess pieces are easy and low-cost to produce. Therefore, plastic chess pieces are significantly cheaper than pieces made from hand-carved wood.
Also, due to the material, plastic chess pieces have light weight, so they are a great fit for younger players who can’t play with heavier pieces made from metal or wood.
If you’re new to chess or you’re a long-term enthusiast in need of some new chess pieces, go for the plastic ones and you can upgrade to more expensive ones later on.
When buying plastic chess pieces, your choice is certainly not limited. At Kaoori, we offer a few different types of plastic chess pieces such as Staunton plastic pieces, themed plastic pieces, and magnetic pieces.
The Staunton pieces are created after traditional Staunton sizes and looks. They are considered as the standard type among chess players. If you’re looking for plastic tournament chess pieces then the Staunton one is your go-to option.
Themed plastic pieces come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and as the name suggests, they follow a certain theme. Themed plastic pieces can be from medieval times to popular movies. These are more decorative than they are practical.
Magnetic chess pieces are essentially the same as plastic Staunton pieces but they have a magnetic strip on the bottom that helps them stick to magnetic chess boards. So, if you own a magnetic chess board and need to upgrade your pieces then go ahead and purchase magnetic plastic pieces from Kaoori.
Even though they are relatively inexpensive, you’re still going to spend time and money on purchasing plastic chess pieces, so you want to get the best ones possible. Here are some things we recommend to do to buy the best ones possible.
