These pieces are awesome and inexpensive. They are virtually indestructible, have a nice feel in the hand (soft & matte not hard & glossy), and even a nice heft and sound. They absolutely won't scratch or dent any board even though they aren't felted. Go for the bold: traditional, school colors, rivalries (Army/Navy) (Bears/Packers), girls vs boys, maybe even gender reveals (!). We have four colors and change the game to suit the mood. Almost any color pair can be played as dark or light pieces. I recommend a mesh bag for each half set, and they will all hang on a doorknob.
I recently placed an order for several chess sets (6 different colors), replacement pieces and medals. I got full delivery with every item correct, and everything well packaged and undamaged. I was particularly pleased with the prompt delivery, as it it was delivered on a Monday (order placed on a Thursday), as I live in Thailand. I happily recommend ChessHouse to anyone purchasing any chess equipment, anywhere in the world.
I bought these because I wanted a chess set that wouldn't break when dropped. These fit the bill and were also available in two colors that made my wall board pop.
I bought these in grey and orange (and paired it with a steel blue mouse pad board). This is my spare set so I wanted it to be a little unique (added benefit, the pieces will never get mixed up). Already played a few games with them and they feel nice and appear to be durable. They wobble a little bit as you move them (since the base is made of the same silicone material--- I'm a casual player, but it probably won't be ideal for short timed games-- possible that the bounciness is amplified because of the mouse pad board). They were a nice conversation piece since they catch your eye. Nice little funky set that I didn't mind spending a little more on for the specialness of them.
Was great product as advertised. Shipped quickly. Now all grandkids are learning and play. Two boys two girls. Now PapaCase needs a new special set.
