The 3 Player Chess Set is everything as depicted on the website . RCTO.us RCTO.ws
I bought this set for my 8yr old grandson he lives the game and it's the same one used at school
Bought two extra queens for kit. Wish they came with set originally.
The members of the club and the general public at the #RaceCodeChess club in #Speakers'Corner #HydePark London England are very impressed with the quality of the pieces and the range of colours to choose from for two player Chess and four player Chess.
We are planning to acquire property in the Mayfair/Park Lane area and have an indoor version of the club in the near future.
We look forward to purchasing more products from ChessHouse.Com to fit out the new indoor club as well.
I had no problems setting up and connecting the Square Off computer. It worked perfectly from the start. It does sometimes need a hand when it’s moving pieces as it occasionally shoves them out of place and occasionally knocks them over. Frustratingly it did not include a power adapter for Oceania countries including Australia and New Zealand but that was resolved with a cheap adapter. The pieces are small and light but that’s essential for the magnetic movement function.
In summary it works well, looks good, connected perfectly and plays a great game.
Bought extra Queens for my old wooden set. I could not be happier! The new monarchs are beautiful and serve their purpose with class and distinction.
The period of time to receive the chess set was our concern. We were glad that weekly emails were sent us updated the order and difficulties occurring with it.
Lo mejor que he adquirido para mejorar mi nivel de juego.
I rarely write reviews but this beautiful chess set is worthy. Sturdy pieces with great detail. Exceeds my expectations. Worth every cent. ❤️
We used it for the first time at our chess club meeting at school. It was extremely helpful in showing students how to notate.
Love this. It's just the right size: not too big, not too small, and you have no idea how nice it is to have the board coordinates oriented to match the colors of the squares on the board.
My Man Ray chess set was lovingly packaged and shipped promptly. I would definitely shop here again. Thank you!
I bought this board primarily for home analysis, to stop annoying my spouse with the permanently set up tournament sized board on the kitchen table. It suits this need perfectly. I keep it on my desk and use it for various things, setting up puzzles, playing through games, etc.
It’s so easy to move around to the couch, the bedroom, etc. Given that I don’t intend on really traveling with it I think I would have liked the 12” board more for analysis, but I was impatient. This one is perfect.
I didn’t notice until I was taking these photos that one knight is significantly darker than the other but it doesn’t really bother me
The 2 pawns I ordered were packed well and arrived intact. The 2 pieces are different in color but they will work.
I had an old chess set (over 40 years old) that you just can't find anymore and it is a really nice Staunton design with a 4 inch king and heavily weighted. However some of the felt is missing from the bases - and I am tired of accumulating and holding on to items that need repair that I never seem to get to. The old organizational categories - KEEP IT - FIX IT - GIVE IT AWAY - THROW IT OUT - well - this chess set had been promoted to the final category and I was just about to put it in the trash and accept that I would never be able to fix it in a way that looked original and so I did a search and the only vendor that came up that cared enough about chess set repair to stock this item was CHESS HOUSE. That speaks a great deal about service to customers because nobody is going to get rich selling felt replacements when they only charge a few pennies for each circle. Not only did CHESS HOUSE have the felt replacements - but different sizes and colors so I could match exactly the ones I needed to tix the set. Now the set looks brand new and is alive and well and ready to do battle with their fellow chess pieces - and that extra care which goes far beyond bottom line business profit - CHESS HOUSE is really doing a service and favor to the chess community by stocking this inexpensive item. When I realized the benevolent philosophy behind CHESS HOUSE - I was ashamed of just ordering a few felt circles - so I tried to think of something else to purchase from them and by the time I was finished ended up spending over 100 bucks on my first order - and WHY? Out of gratitude for standing out from the rest of the crowd of vendors that would not bother to stock this item. THANKS AGAIN CHESS HOUSE! Do you want to use your money to support and enable companies to survive and grow that don't really care about you apart from the money they can get? Or do you want companies that care about their customers to survive and grow? Every time you spend money you are voting for the type of companies that will dominate the commerce of the entire planet. Well I vote for CHESS HOUSE!
