My impression is that Drueke hasn't "closed shop" but is basically having all its inventory liquidated by the holding company, Carrom. Guess Carrom doesn't seem to think Drueke could be profitable. :(
I think you can still buy a Drueke board but not sets.
I take a pessimestic view of the situation. As with so very many corporate buy-outs, Carrom bought the good Drueke name and probably some unsold inventory, seeking to capitalize on the Drueke reputation. Once the inventory is gone, they could care less and substitute the nice Drueke sets with cheap Chinese or sweat-shop knock-offs, making a nice profit. The idea is short term profit, not long term reputation.
wickawack, that gorgeus red and white plastic drueke set you posted...what sizw is a square on that board, and how tall is the king? its gorgeous.
Damn... So much sentimental value here for this set. I know it is much cherished among old american generation and was like, the top standard set back in that decade. Even though I think the pieces are not very "aesthetically pleasing," I'm sure it's reliable and easy to play with. Cheers.
I had one of these in the 70s when I was a teenager and do not really miss it. Compared to the House of Staunton "Marshall" plastic pieces, they do not cut a great figure. Yes they have a certain sentimental air for those of us who grew up in the 60s using those cheap K-Mart E.S. Lowe pieces - I actually have more sentiment for that one than the Drueke 36. But imported wood sets of great quality can now be had for really not much money. For schlepping to the tavern, I have the 2.75" HOS Marshall in black and ivory + 1.75" green/white silk screened linen board. Can't beat that!
I have a number of Drueke sets I just got a single or double weighted set I close to unused condition. I noticed a loose bishop mitre is there a preferred glue? Also is there a way to post pics from my phone?
It's a #36 set btw see above post
Is there no love for the earlier Drueke red-and-white set, No.23 ("American Made Chessmen")? I find them beautiful and nicely weighted. The plastic feels creamy, not cheap. They're great for analysis, and they seem to be plentiful on ebay. Of course, few things can beat that Player's Choice in red and white...
Are the Drueke boards now made by Drueke's son or grandson as good as the old ones?
