Among the inexpensive chess sets, the most attractive ones are the wooden chess sets. These are simple as well as unique in style as well as design. Besides, these can also be made very expensive by adding on customized motifs and designs at the behest of the owner. They are good for the players of all age groups. These chess sets are created out of different types of wood. They have different individual styles and are designed artistically by craftsmen. These chess sets can also be topped with metals to make them look even more majestic. The painted pieces fit well on any of the wooden chess boards. Smaller sized wooden chess pieces are convenient enough to use in high level tournaments. Another advantage that these types of chess sets have is that they can be easily carried around.

For low level tournaments, plastic chess sets are generally used. However, there are expensive chess sets available as well.
