Unusable

The set is very nice considering the affordable price and the pieces stay put even if the board is turned upside down. The board is beautiful. But very quickly me and my wife noticed an unpleasant odor which seemed to be coming from the carrying case so I stuck the case out of the way to air out. But the odor was stronger coming from the board! Apparently the felt covering and glue is the source. It seriously stunk up our whole apartment so bad I wrapped it back up. Unusable. Maybe other sets don't have this awful odor but this one did. Further: after 10 days and repeated requests for a return label, I'm still waiting for that label. They won't even return my calls. I would greatly appreciate the Chess House friendly team sending me a return label. Thank you.

Nice enough board but came with a dented corner.

The board arrived with a dented corner. While disappointing, it doesn’t effect play. Otherwise it’s a decent setup for the cost.
