Great beginner set. Assuming kids will not chew on 'em. If so wait until at least six. Best if you start with their first grade elementary school buddies; if boys best at about 11 years.
this is about fulfillment of a "possible" shortage - which I questioned myself - as a possible sticky fingered club member. Anyhow the Black Knight was replaced no charge - it does not get any better. I was willing to purchase the piece - Chess House was without question willing to - and sent - a new replacement piece, without any discussion. I like dealing with companies that value the customer relationship more than a few dollars.
Excellent. Great value.
These budget chess pieces are good for beginners and children. However, care must be exercised when handling these chessmen, as they are not as durable as the “quality” pieces that you’ll also find at Chess House.
This is the perfect gift idea to get kids interested in chess. Very durable and can take anywhere.
