There are times, when you want to play a good game of chess with a friend, but if you are on the move - like train, aeroplane or sitting relaxed on a yacht - then there is the risk of the pieces moving across the board. You don't want to risk your winning position being lost due to a bump or some air turbulence!
Rescue comes from those lovely Magnetic Chess Sets. The pieces are magnetically attached to the boards and although it is still easy to move them around and check-mate your opponent, they bond strong enough as to not be bothered with the usual movements associated with travel. And you neither have to give up on gorgeous looks too! Magnetic chess sets can be rather cheap, but they can also be made from prestigious woods as you can see here.
