Awesome board

My son absolutely LOVES it! I love it too. It’s looks and feel of high end quality. It has a nice finish to it. Felt on the bottom of board relieves anxiety when placing on any surfaces. The magnet works well. The pieces are made just right size to tell each other apart. The travel case/bag is a huge plus because you can take and store anywhere with ease. I couldn’t decide between the 12inch or 8 inch so I got both. Not one once of regret. Well worth every penny.


This travel chess set was on our grandson’s wish list for his 15th birthday. By all accounts he’s very happy with it. Exactly as expected!

Best Little Chess Set

This is a great little chess set perfect for my desktop next to my keyboard and computer screen, so it's easy to play against an online computer without having to swivel around before and after each move. Also, it's a full size board without having to fold it open when playing, so it sits level.

Also the case it comes in holds the pieces nicely in their respective places, and zips shut. It has a nice touch and feel to it, felt bottoms, and you can have all the chess pieces on the board, pick it up and turn it upside down and the pieces will stay in place without dropping off the board.

It's my favorite chess set so far !

Defective black bishop

Xmas morning daughter opened her gift to find the felt on the black bishop is missing
Searched the box in case it just needed to be re-glued but is no where to be found
She loves the set but was disappointed by this defect...
Hope customer service will respond to this review
And correct the problem, Thnx

Perfect little set for travel or lap use.

All I expected and more. I couldn’t, be more pleased!
