With a huge money prize on offer and Worldwide TV coverage, the match was compulsive viewing for millions who had only had a fleeting interest in Chess from their school days.
We at Geoffrey Parker, already by that time recognised as the World’s finest makers of board games were requested by Jaques of London to make the cabinets and chessboards for the game.
Jaques of London originally made the first Staunton Chessmen back in 1849 and would be supplying the pieces for all future major tournaments and Championships thereafter; they, therefore, got in touch with us to make the cabinets and chessboards required for the “Game of the Century” or “The Cold War Classic” as we like to call it.
