If you’re wondering which is the most expensive chess set in the world, Ealuxe has the answer!

Chess is one of the best board games, a 2-player strategy game on an usually 8×8 board with alternating light and dark squares.

Everyone has played board games at least once in his life time.

Board games have been entertaining the family and friends for years and the best part is that these can be used for fun or intellectual stimulation.

You all know that board games come in pretty cheap. But not the world’s highest priced chess set.
