Do you feel like a grandmaster? Maybe it’s not the time yet, but you can have a set of chess pieces such as the set from the great contest between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky, which took place in Reykjavik in 1972. Chess pieces used in this historic match were produced by the famous English company Jaques of London.
The match of 1972, where Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky fought for the world championship, is probably the most famous chess match in whole history – especially because it took place during the „Cold War“. Although Fischer lost the first two games, the tables were turned and soon he won the whole match 12 ½ to 8 ½. This amazing score put an end to the Russian domination in the world of chess.
Reykjavik Acacia/Boxwood chess pieces are made from the highest quality acacia wood (black pieces) and boxwood (white pieces).
