My brother likes wearing bandannas, and likes Chess - so, for his birthday (Jul 24), I've ordered him the Chessboard Bandanna, from http://www.warehouse23.com/item.cgi?LAB018 . 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
