My brother likes wearing bandannas, and likes Chess - so, for his

Now, it's hard to play chess without chess pieces, so to make his
present even better, I'm hoping to find some sort of pocket-sized
chess set. The only ones I've been able to find online are the
magnetic boards, which kind of defeat the purpose of the bandanna.
Ideally, something the size of a credit card or two, or would
otherwise fit inside a wallet, would be perfect; maybe even something
based on those new pop-open-and-assemble cards (ala that pirate CCG).

I've never seen a chess set *that* tiny, but I do have this set, which is about the size of a checkbook, and thus can easily be carried around in one's pocket: http://www.chesshouse.com/Ultimate_Magnetic_Chess_Checkbook_size_p/ e101.htm
