Chess, a game with a storied history, has witnessed a remarkable resurgence in popularity, particularly following the release of Netflix’s miniseries “The Queen’s Gambit” in 2020. This show, centered around the game, captured global attention, becoming more than just a series about chess. It was the top show in over 12 countries and accumulated over 100 million views worldwide​​​​. Its impact on the chess world was immediate and significant. eBay reported a staggering 215% increase in searches for chess sets just days after the series’ release, illustrating the show’s influence in making chess trendy again​​.

“The Queen’s Gambit” has played a pivotal role in not just reviving interest in chess but also in making it more accessible and recognizable to a new generation. People who had never played the game were inspired to start, and the game’s popularity has not waned since. Interest in chess continues to grow, as evidenced by ongoing analyses by online gaming platforms​​.

In this context, personalised chess sets present a unique opportunity for enthusiasts and new players alike. Personalised chess sets not only celebrate the individual’s love for the game but also serve as a stylish tribute to a series that brought the ancient game back into the limelight.
