Great chess set

Great chess set! it is a high quality board and pieces, AND a travel set. You will not be disappointed!

Well done

Made well and perfect size

Looks Perfect

I bought this for my granddaughter. Given the concerns about smell from a couple of the previous ratings I opened it to allow it to air out in advance of giving it to her. I didn't find the smell very strong and it aired out in a couple of days. While open I looked it over. The board is beautiful the pieces look great. And the magnetic attachment works just right. Can't wait until she sees it!

As described :)

Arrived ... As described excited to try it out but won't have access to it for another month. This baby is on its way to my work in Panama! Pictures received show a beautiful board and well made pieces at a size condusive for play and study traveling in remote areas. I hope it lasts in our crazy weather here!

The *only* thing I wish this particular size and travel board had would be a grid. But no worries.

Best looking travel set

This travel set is beautiful and the pics dont do it justice looks great even being left out on a table. It comes is a travel case thats about the size of a 13inch laptop case thats thick foam and felted on the inside to keep the board safe and each piece has an individual slot in a foam cut out to keep them from sliding around getting harmed. The pieces are magnetic and are very strong until you get to the kings the magnets become a little weaker and can be knocked over a little easier. Overall an amazing set and I love it and would recommend
