I was looking for a small weighted "analysis" travel chess set that would fit on my desk. I didn't want the wooden magnetic sets because they were a bit out of my budget. First, I am super happy with this purchase. I originally got the analysis chess set but wasn't super impressed with the weight on those chess pieces. Thank you Paul Adams who made this recommendation. Great service!
The chess pieces have a good design and weight for the size. The quality of the chess pieces are good but not 5 star good. I ordered the white and red chess pieces with the blue board and black bag. I also have the green board and bag from the analysis set I ordered before. I would recommend the green board over the blue if you are getting the red and white chess pieces. See the pictures to compare and decide for yourself. Both are nice.
The 4 star rating is because of the price and markings on the red chess pieces (see pictures) although price is competitive. I had doubts on how the red and white pieces would look with the green board but it looks nice to me. The bag is okay but there is no place to roll the board to carry for traveling.
Overall, I would recommend this set. It's a good set that provides good weighted chess pieces while providing portability. Good for adults and kids.
