Hi all. I just bought a chess mat (today) but when I set the pieces up, they keep falling over cos the mat folds up. What do I do? Should I iron it?
And when I'm storing it should I fold it up?

I don't know if this is posted already or not.
My first roll up board came with a little ring instead. You can make one out of paper. Just tape a little ring of paper in a circle. Slide it down to the middle of the board after you have rolled it and use it for storage.
This works for the standard tournament vinyl board. I hope it works for you.
