Piece Sets

The following Chess Sets are currently available on SchemingMind. Most of them were submitted by site members, if you have an interesting idea, you can create new one. The Highlight column shows examples of highlighted squares, the Drag column shows examples of dragged piece image, N/A in any of those columns means that given set does not support the corresponding feature (you are welcome to add those features, article about set creation contains the necessary info). See also which sets are popular.

You can select any of them as your default using your preferences). Also, you can use alternative set for some selected games using game folders.

This set has the look a tall three dimensional chess set of ivory and black. The Knight's nose looks a little long and the Rook is a little tall. The board is grey and white.

rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBQKBNR
N/AN/A
A very abstract set in Red and Tan. The pieces appear to have beveled edges. The board is white and teal. Some may find this set hard to play with because of its stylized pieces.

These pieces are completely blank. A true challenge because your opponent will still see his pieces.
Chess Markmark

 

rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBQKBNR
N/AN/A
Created by ohfreak, based on the chess font 'Chess Mark' by Armando Hernandez Marroquin. The black and white pieces may seem a bit quirky at first but they have a Viking feel. The pieces feel "short" compared to other sets. The board is a textured white and orange.

Designed by Philip, these black and white pieces are represented by musical notations. Mnemonics: Natural kNights, Flats look like b-ishops, Treble Clef King - accompanied by Bass Clef Queen! Quarter note pawns. Sharps resemble rook turret edges.
Chinesechinese

 

rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBQKBNR
Based on the pieces from Chinese Chess (Xiangqi), this set uses round pieces with the Chinese characters. The board is unique in that the pieces sit on line intersections instead of in squares. The pieces can be hard to read if you don't know Chinese. Created by bjordan.

rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBQKBNR
Created by neoliminal, this set uses cookies from an American cookie manufacturer for both sides. The board is blue and white and is reminiscent of a table cloth. The pieces are slightly hard to read because of their size

This set was created by Neoliminal for the purpose of helping in dark variants where some other sets make it hard to locate squares. This set is particularly helpful in Lao Tzu where so many squares are hidden from view. The thematics of the where based on the comicbook company called Dark Horse Comics.
