The board is beautiful, yet simple enough to be timeless. The pieces are a bit on the bland side, but the price does reflect that this isn't the most high-end board. The only reason this got 4 stars is that there were a few places, where the drawers insert under the board, for example, that hadn't been sanded down all the way, so I had to pick off several splinters, not really something you want to deal with. I would still buy it again, though, this is good bang for the buck for a starter chess set.
