How is demo chess different from traditional sets?

The difference between demo chess sets and classic chess sets can be spotted even from afar. Demo sets are big in size and they’re designed to be tacked or hung up on walls or chalkboards for easy display. Unlike 3D pieces of traditional chess, demo sets have big 2D pieces that can be attached to the demo board. Demo sets aren’t designed to be used for a casual game of chess. You technically can play a whole game using a demo set but it certainly won’t be convenient. Demo sets have a specific purpose - to demonstrate and teach. They’re often used in large tournaments to showcase the moves of the players. Demo sets are great for presenting various problems to large audiences. 


Different types of demo chess

You can find different types of demo chess sets in the market but the two most common ones that are sold at Kaoori are the magnetic chess set and the pouch-style demo boards. Magnetic chess sets have a board and flat pieces that have magnets in them. The magnets allow the pieces to be moved across the board and not fall. Pouch style demo boards, on the other hand, have clear pouches over each square on the board, so the pieces that can be made of cardboard, plastic or vinyl move in and out of each pouch.

Both magnetic and pouch-style chess boards are excellent options, so it’s more a matter of taste and budget. Generally speaking, magnetic chess sets tend to be a bit more durable, while the pouches are prone to tearing and require more care.

Buying a demo chess set

As soon as you’ve figured out that you need a demo chess as soon as possible, you’ll find yourself wondering whether you should get the magnetic one or the pouch-style. 

If you’re going to use it in a classroom then we recommend the magnetic boards as they’re more engaging. These sets are much easier for children to use than the pouch-style boards. Plus, there is always the matter of durability and magnetic demo sets score a point in their favor. But you should also keep in mind that it’s easier to lose magnetic pieces than the pouch-style ones simply because there is no pouch to hold them. But this problem is easily solved if you attach the demo set to the wall and you keep an eye out for children trying to grab the pieces.
