FALLS APART!!!!

Don't buy this if you don't want to risk the top sticker bubbling off or the metal sheet completely disconnecting from the board. I've complained already, had a replacement board sent, WHICH ALSO FAILED. I'd give this chessboard ZERO STARS if possible.

Beautiful Board and pieces

I bought this travel board for my son. He is becoming quite the chess player. He brought it with him when visiting me, and he said it is perfect. He loves the wood. He said it is convenient to unzip the travel bag and on one side are the chess pieces in each of its respective holder and on the other side is the board. The board lays completely flat. I’m so happy I bought this for him.

excellent travel edition

Board and pieces look of excellent quality. The magnet may be "weak" as another reviewer posted but I think it allows for easy play without fighting the piece to move from the square it is on. I did a tilt test, and all the pieces stayed in their appropriate square after bein rotated beyond perpendicular from the table surface. case is great with the protective felt for the board and the cutouts for all the pieces.

A nice chess set

This is a nice travel chess set . I love the board and it was what I was waiting for. The storage case looks strong and resistant. The pieces are lacquered, very light, the feeling of the magnet is very weak and some chess pieces have glue at the base.
The dark pieces are not rosewood, they are painted with a light brown color that gives the appearance of rosewood but do not look natural.

Perfect Chess Set

This is pretty much the ideal chess set. Portable, but large enough to be nice and visible. High quality case and nice pieces. I had to wait over a year for it to be in stock, but it was worth it
