About us

The classic game of chess is one of the most beloved games in history. For years, people have been playing with and collecting various sets displaying unique tastes and styles. Now, PRV Chess brings you a modern theme to a game for the ages.

Roger PhelpsInspired by his personal collection of chess sets and his love for travel, Roger Phelps founded PRV Chess to bring you these unique, wood chess sets. All PRV Chess pieces are one of a kind, handcrafted and hand painted art. Each set is numbered upon completion for future reference.

Roger tries to select wood for the pieces, that produces contrast, beauty, and uniqueness for each set. The variations in wood compositions make it very unlikely, that any two sets will be the same. The basic style and intent will however, continue.

The cloth roll-up "carry board" may vary in color and material, depending on the time frame and perceived needs of a particular set. It is designed to store the chess pieces safely and conveniently, and is easily rolled out on a flat surface for play. The carry board stores quickly and compactly, fitting into the RV lifestyle - tucked away in a small unused space until the next game.
