Nice Chess Set

This chess set is really good, it arrived right on time and it came in perfect condition. The set all fits into a nice bag for an easy grab and play set and the fact that the magnets hold all the pieces onto the board even with the entire board upside down is a cool feature but just to note that the magnets across the board are on entire face of the board and the magnets are not too strong to really mess with you while you are playing. Now being that it is a 12" chess set, (in my opinion is just right at the perfect size for me) I could see that a person with bigger hands could have issues with the chess set being small but I don't really think it is an issue. However the only issue I came across was trying to get the pieces in and out of the spaces that they fit into within the bag that the set comes with, now after a while it really didn't become that much of issue after a few times of using the set but overall this is a good chess set for travelling and running around with as it is not that heavy of a chess set. But I would recommend this chess set to anyone that wants a magnetic chess set that is not too big for most places.

Beautiful board, beautiful support

I received my board and love the weight and feel of the pieces. The magnet feels like it gives each move with an emphasis and sticking on the board. I loved the board and it had a minor ding which support(Paul) took great care to work through to ship a new board.

My only feedback would be adding a ribbon behind the pieces so it is a bit easier to take the pieces out. It has been my go-to travel board for my new start in Chess.

Nice chess set

I got this chess set as an anniversary gift for my husband (and me) so we could take it on the road
whenever we can get back to traveling. The rosewood set is handsome and just the right size
for our purposes.
