Busco piezas para Mephisto Modular

Notapor Kupelwieser » 01 Sep 2017 18:38

Hola. Compré hace poco en eBay un tablero Mephisto Modular sin piezas. Pensaba que de los varios juegos de piezas magnéticas que tengo por casa, alguno valdría... pero no! Son demasiado débiles para activar los sensores reed. Si alguien tuviera las piezas originales o compatibles con este tablero, le agradecería que se pusiera en contacto conmigo. Gracias.

Hi Kupelwieser,

I currently use a Modular Board (+Mirage modul) with pieces from a 25x25cm wooden magnetic set I bought 2 years ago at "la boutique des échecs". I paid it 39€ (+5,29 for shipment). Price went up to 47€ today...
It works perfectly - but pieces are a bit small (they best fit 25x25mm squares). Carnelian II pieces also work fine, but they are too small as well.
30x30cm magnetic set is also available and should fit Modular Board squares size, here is a link: https://echecs.me/jeux-magnetiques/198- ... -30cm.html
More expensive, 58€.

In August I ordered this one on Amazon: https://www.amazon.fr/dp/B00I3ZA2IY/ref ... TE_3p_dp_1
27,39€ + 5,99€ shipment. Delivery is slow (coming from India), I expect to receive it mid-September. I will let you know if delivery is trustable & set convenient for the Modular Board...

Kind regards,
Tibono

Hi all, hello Kupelwieser,
I received today the SouvNear chess set from India (the one I bought on Amazon in August). Thus five weeks for delivery.
I am a bit disappointed: the figures do activate the reed switchs and their size fits:

but:
- some figures are not the same size, check c2-d3-e4 pawns - d3 is bigger. Same issue with both black knights and black rooks (heights differ). In addition to size, shaping is obviously not the same comparing black rooks.
- under the figures a poor thin green paper disk is glued, instead of usual smooth felt. As a result, moving the figures provide an uncomfortable rough contact with the board and as magnets are powerful, some tend to slip and stick together. This can be enhanced easily with convenient felt disk stickers.

Thus I would recommend to pay more for a better quality product (and faster delivery), such as the 58€ one from "la boutique des échecs".
Kind regards

Wow! :#22:
What an unlucky purchase....

T'es pièces ressemble beaucoup à des pièces Novag.
Jai mis en vente un mephisto exclusive pour 250 euros en très bel état avec un module miragenre.
Je peux descendre le prix si il t'intéresse.

Hello Tibono,

I'm sorry about your experience. I have had another disappointing story: I bought another Modular board in eBay, mostly because of the piece set. But at least two of the pieces doesn't activate the magnetic sensors in a few squares grr... :)

The 30 cms pieces of "la boutique des échecs" seems nice. Maybe -if I don't find them in Spain- I will bought that set. Thank you again for the info.

Best regards,

hi,
second buy from La Boutique des Echecs, 30x30cm one, just received today:

A few days for delivery, the set fits modular board size (to my humble opinion) and quality is correct - close to nice.
White pieces color is not as yellow as my snapshot shows - just electric light effect.
No size nor shaping issue, it is really a set - not an addition of pieces.

Magnets are a bit too strong but pieces being heavier than previous set and felted, they do not tend to gather and stick - just a small push of a few millimeters occurs sometimes. Another side effect is: sometimes biggest pieces (queen & king, I assume their magnets are larger) may unexpectedly keep activated a border square reed switch; I mean the switch is mostly activated by a piece on it and nearby queen adds a distant contribution - moving the piece elsewhere should release the switch but it stays on due to the nearby queen. Moving the queen up and down releases both switchs (it's own and the newly freed square's one) then only the queen's one goes back to activated status. No distant activation of switches for empty squares occurs.

Game is fully playable and I am satisfied with the look and quality. In addition, I expect magnets to loose a small quantity of power while aging.
Regards,
Tibono

Perhaps you can reduce this effect by adding a thicker felt to the base of the pieces. Basically because you increase the distance between the magnet and the board.
