Cheque size magnetic chess set. Love it! I think anyone would be well satisfied! Get it and see! Two day shipping,also! Great company! William
To me much handier than the cheque-book sized sets. Use one to play the games in the old Irving Chernev books. Also travel better and more durable than the non-folding backpack 3-size sets you folks sold back in 2011/2012. At same time large enough to play a game at the pool or coffee-shop. Larger pieces easier to pick up and move. Bought several extra sets so I can color the pieces -background red or figures green. Cheaper than buying the old Epoch and Pressman magnetic sets on e-bay so I could have red and white pieces on green & white squares.Finally,if one is a really really poor loser, can pick up set,fold ,whap opponent over head and challenge to duel the next sunrise using the folded sets at 2 paces or smile and say dryly--"J,adoube." Feel free to edit this review. Currahee.
I bought three, one to keep and two to give away as prizes. Everyone is very satisfied with this product. It's easy enough to use at bedtime and provides a very clear board for analyzing, without things flying every which-way. Extra Queen is nice (should be standard by now), plus "blanks" for the possibility of losing a piece (the best magnetic pocket set I ever had lost pieces here and there until it became unusable; this one is going to pass through at least a few more years of usefulness because of the extras). Excellent set: no complaints at all.
