I ordered at 14” chess set for my son as a Christmas present. After a few weeks it was apparent it had been lost in the mail. As soon as I reached out with my concern Chess House responded that they would upgrade my order to a larger set free of charge. It was at my house within a few days. The chess set is solid and beautiful, and my son loves his new board, but the customer service stood out as much as the quality of the product. I would order from this company again without hesitation.
I bought this set for my 17 year old grandson, who has won several chess medals, He loves it, and I think it was his favorite Christmas gift. It arrived beautifully packaged, and in a timely manner. I was totally satisfied.
Really impressed with the quality of this board and pieces. Very sturdy and substantial feeling and weighted all around. Board also lays perfectly flat and magnetism is just right. Much nicer than the Chinese Amazon cheapo options.
Only mini cosmetic complaint is that I think the gold latches look dated and don't match the overall super appearance of the rest of the board.
Would definitely recommend.
Very good quality chess set, ideal for traveling. All chess pieces fit well inside the board, and it has been perfect for my chess strategy work while on the road. Very satisfied with this purchase. Chesshouse is by far the best company I have ever worked with for anything chess related. I look forward to continue being a repeat customer for years to come!
