Unfortunately, as of September 2017, all production of chessboards has been suspended until March 2018, due to a number of factors.

We are reassessing the business and looking at producing the sets in a different way to reduce costs and provides sets to customers more quickly.

We currently do not have any timeframe around this pause in the business. Please check back in the new year around March for an update.
