The large raised black squares make it easy to feel your way across the board and each black chess piece has a tactile pin in the top. The board has drilled holes in each square so the pieces slot into the hole to prevent them from falling over.
The board measures approximately 33 cm x 33 cm x 1.7 cm.
The dark/black squares are raised to differentiate them from the white squares.
To differentiate the black wooden pieces from the white, the black pieces have a small metal tip on the top of each of the playing pieces. You can feel this as you run your finger over the top of the piece.
