About

 

 

Millions love to play Chess.

But historically it has been difficult to travel with 32 pieces + a board, usually fragile or heavy – or both. Try fitting the rigid game board into a backpack. The cost of a decent set can easily reach into the hundreds of dollars. And some sets have pieces you can't quickly recognize, then your queen is gone!

TREK CHESS finally fixes those things and fits in your pocket or carry-on!

 

Lay out the board cards, the piece cards and begin!
Lay out the board cards, the piece cards and begin!

 32 Board pieces & 32 Game pieces in all.

The compact 64-card deck easily Treks with you wherever you roam.

 Each deck weighs only 4 oz.

Made of hard-to-tear, rinsable & waterproof plastic.

 

 

Easily discern which piece is which. No second-guessing.

 

 

We kept the design extremely minimal to remove any distractions during play.

We want YOU to decide the secondary COLOR on the back of the cards. Vote in the comments to push your favorite. We'll try to tally them all up before Nov. 30.

TREK cards will be printed double-sided. You will likely want the board color to be different than the pieces during play. Surprise us!

1 color can be: Pink, Red, Kickstarter Green, Purple, Blue, Teal

Risks and challenges

Creating things is our passion.

Our last Kickstarter project, Createures, arrived several months early and on-budget. We plan to do the same for these high-quality TREK Chess game cards.

Designs and layouts are already 99% complete, but NOT finalized until everything is at the printshop and running on the press. We always keep backers informed along the entire process and will remain focused on the end product.

Our goal is to send another useful product into the world alongside your many journeys. Thank you for supporting TREK CHESS.
