Outstanding quality pieces. Very happy with them. I bought one of each in case I loose someone. Who knows if they'll be discontinued and I preferred to take this preemptive measure.
This great little crafted magnetic travel set was about 95% what I was looking for with the exception of not having promotional queens. Once I had seen that Chesshouse offered replacement pieces for certain sets the Milled 9" Magnetic Travel set was once of them. Albeit that they were out of replacement queen piece stock at the time but I was quickly notified the moment they were back in stock and available for sale. I immeditely ordered and now my set is 100% to my expectations. A very cool little set and nicely carved by the way if you want a very portable yet nice magnetic travel set. The magnets aren't super strong but strong enough to keep them in their square even if the board is tilted 90º. Thank you once again Chesshouse for a reliable soultion to my chess needs.
I bought the Milled Leather travel chess set, which was back ordered when I made my purchase. I also wanted to purchase a matching set of queens to go with the set.
Josh B of Chess House took care of all the arrangements to add the additional pieces to my order. The pieces are very nice for a set in this price range.
The single replacement piece is in good condition and looks very good. It is smaller than I expected given the dimensions on the website and magnetic bottom is not very strong. But it certainly works and looks good.
The original set that I purchased had the white rook felt not glued properly and I informed Chess House about it. Josh was quick to respond and immediately shipped out a replacement for free. The white rook replacement was in perfect condition and came quickly in time for my daughter's birthday (that we gifted her). Thanks Josh and Chess House.
