Chess e-Pieces

Selection of chess pieces is a very personal matter and DGT offers a varied selection of handmade sets. The pieces are compatible with all existing electronic DGT boards, Smart Boards and the Revelation Chess Computer.

All sets are available in a regular version as well as an extra weighted version. The plastic electronic set and the Modern Staunton set are only available extra weighted.

Of course all DGT chess pieces sets are supplied with four queens, two for each colour.



The DGT Timeless pieces are the classical Staunton model in its most simple form.

Most top level players prefer this basic design.

This set is very often used in combination with the Walnut e-Board or Smart Board.



The DGT Classic chess pieces are a black stained variation on the Staunton model with a robust Knight.


The DGT Royal set is made from the finest rosewood and has an elaborately cut knight.


Made from real black ebony wood, the Ebony set is one of the most exclusive and luxurious sets for DGT e-boards.




The official FIDE chess set was first used on DGT boards in 2013 at the World Championship Match in Chennai India when Magnus Carlsen used the pieces to defeat Vishwanathan Anand and become the 16th World Champion.

The distinctive set was designed by internationally renowned Pentagram designer and architect Daniel Weil. The design is based on the proportions of classical Greek architecture and the classic Staunton design to create a set that is both modern and traditional.



The DGT Modern Staunton chess pieces are a contemporary design option for those chess players who prefer modern look.

The set is weighted and looks particularly beautiful on the black and red leather Bluetooth e-Board.



Electronic Plastic Chess Pieces are designed as an affordable alternative for use on the DGT Smart Boards.

Made from high quality plastic, the set is practically unbreakable and weighted to create that extra robust feel and enhance the experience of playing chess. 


Most chess players prefer a slightly heavier feel of a piece when they make a move and all DGT electronic chess pieces sets are available both as regular set and as extra weighted set. Below list gives an indication of the set weights. Please note that stated weights are for indication only and may vary from set to set as natural products are used and the sets are handmade.
