Welcome to the page about our chess pieces, which are carved in India. Previously, chess pieces were usually carved from Rosenwood or Pallisander wood, but these woods are now on the CITES list. As a result, our HOT Games chess figures are now carved from Acacia wood. The dimensions of the chess pieces were devised by Jacques Staunton. This is to ensure that there is a good balance between chessboard and chess pieces. After the series 'the Queens Gambit', sales have skyrocketed. As a result, a large number of models are temporarily unavailable.
