About

What is the Bolivian Chess?

The Bolivian Chess is a hand made game that mixes the history of South America/Bolivia with the game. The board is made out of wood and the figures are ceramic and both are hand painted. It makes every chess game unique.

The board is based on the battle between the Incas (Native South Americans) and the invaders (Spanish).

Chess Measures:

Small: Board 15cmx15cm - King≈4cm - Queen≈3,5cm

Medium: Board 20cmx20cm - King≈5,5cm - Queen≈5,5cm

Big: Board 26cmx26cm - King≈7cm - Queen≈6,5cm

Background:

After travelling for a couple of months in Bolivia I noticed how the chess is an important game in their daily life. There I had the opportunity to meet some artisans that introduced me the Bolivian Chess.

I had an instant appreciation for this piece of traditional art and that is why I want to share it.
