New chessboard? Your move…

I bought a new set of chess pieces whilst overseas, but now I need a good-quality chessboard to go with it. Is there a game board shop in Phuket?

“There is a shop called Phuket Saguan Phanich on the corner of Yaowarat Road and Phang Nga Road in Phuket Town. It is a stationery and sports equipment shop that has good-quality boards for sale.

The chessboards are made of good-quality plywood and lacquered with varnish. Prices vary around 220 to 300 baht.

Another shop that sells chess boards is Kiatsin (website here), on Mae Luan Road near Khao Rang, in Phuket Town

However, I would like to invite everyone who is interested in playing or learning chess – including yourself – to join us at the Phuket Chess Club from 6pm to 8:30pm daily.

Our club is located near Phun Pol Night Plaza on Phun Pol Road in Phuket Town.

We have many excellent players here to practice with and compete against.

We play international chess rules.

If you want to be a member of the club. It is only 120 baht per year without any service charge.

For more information call me at 087-8904361 or visit our Facebook page (click here).”
