This clock - which I would like to use (a) for a Scrabble timer and (b) for a debate practice timer - seems to be well made, is accurate, arrived well packaged and very quickly. One problem (not with the product): I can find nowhere a description of how to actually set it for (for instance) 5 minutes, or any particular time interval. Cannot find instructions online; no manual or instructions were included in the package. Would be tremendously helpful. I continue my search.
I really like the potential of Chess Link. I have paired it with HIARCS on my iPad Pro, iPad Mini and iPhone XS. HIARCS gives Deep Junior on my MacBook Air a run for the money. It also plays sharp against Mac Shredder and Deep Shredder. I am looking forward for Chess Link being integrated with other Mac programs (Shredder, SmallFish, Chess Tiger, Chess Genius). Would also like to see Chess Link hook up with programs on my MacBook Air.
I saw the YouTube video where the 18 inch case was used to store the Millennium Exclusive Board but I wanted to safely store the Chess Link as well. The larger case stores everything!
I intend to purchase another when the Centaur board arrives!
Well built, Pleased with this clock, Metal case easy to program time controls, recommended to anybody ...
The box came all the way from USA to Sweden very carefully wrapped and in great shape!
The size was big and beautiful. The pieces are of great quality and my fiancé, who got it for his birthday is super happy with it!
Definitely an investment that will last for many many years
I simply love the new Grey and white chess board I recieved. The reason I choose this color is because of it's easy contrast on my eyes. This color makes Black or Crimson chess pieces pop out on the board. This board is a must for those who have had vision problems. If your looking for top quality you have found it with this board. Chess House is simply a fantastic company that really cares about it's customers.you will not find this color chess board anywhere else period. You will not regret getting this gem of a chess board. Godbless. John S Turlington.
I ordered these for my son who had just built a chess board/table in school and wanted pieces so he could play on it. He browsed the sets online and chose these. They come in a nice wooden box for storage and arrived quickly and safely. Very happy and would order from The Chess House again.
I really like the board and checkers, but the board arrived scared and the edges of the holes where the checkers rest were worn through the finish exposing bare wood.
As advertised. Small, very light weight. Until someone makes a weighted analysis set like the one that Drueke produced, it will due.
This is certainly a fun clock to use. When playing 5 minute games with a delay, this clock is easy to set, use and reset.
This clock is not designed for multiple time controls but that is alright. It does a great job for what it is made to do.
A hard to find title, yet Chess House had a brand new book. A reasonable price with a Father's Day discount made this purchase unbeatable anywhere! (Amazon wanted $70.00!) Additionally, shipping was quick, especially from coast to coast (U.S.) The book arrived a day sooner than scheduled. Excellent service and communication; will do business with Chess House again, no hesitation! Thanks!
Very helpful folks, and addressed a shipping issue quickly and with generosity and a can-do spirit!
Beautiful magnetic travel set in sturdy, attractive case. Board and pieces are high quality and attractive. Magnets work very well. Great set for any kind of travel. I love my new set.
Chess House was helpful when I first wanted to purchase the Cowboys and Indian chess set. It was out of stock at time. They emailed me when they got it back in stock. My order was delivered quickly and packaged securely. I am mostly satisfied with the set. My only criticism is that I think some pieces (the Queen and King) should be a bit larger. It is a bit difficult to tell them apart from others at glance. But on the whole, I am very satisfied with the set.
Received a free replacement rook within days after posting a review that ours broke. This is the best customer service I’ve ever received and I’m so glad we decided to buy our chess set from the Chess House instead of a big box online retailer! Thank you!
Everything about this set says quality: the smell of the well made box, the detail in the small pieces, the thick sturdy board. The pieces are finished flawlessly. In a perfect world, I would like extra queens, and maybe 25% stronger magnets in all the pieces. They do hold pretty well, but I could see if a boxed-up game in progress gets bumped a little too strongly, the pieces could shift. All in all though, still very very nice. And even more so with a discount and free shipping :-)
Here are two pics of the board with the Fischer-Spassky commemorative set i mentioned in my other review. Sorry about the orientation.
