A luxurious personal-size set for study and analysis

I find this delightful set to be a beautiful and functional alternative to the more common analysis sets with plastic pieces on a vinyl board. This half-size (by square width and king height) set looks great on my desk and is easily movable to a different room without upsetting any pieces. The board and the wooden pieces are well constructed, and the modest color palette is easy on the eyes. Before using the set I was afraid that the small pieces might be a bit fussy to manipulate but the magnets are forgiving of even my fat fingers. The board is just heavy enough that it doesn't slide on my desk unless I want it to.

I didn't buy it as a travel set, and I suspect I'd enjoy it somewhat less as such. The board doesn't fold and the whole set in its (well constructed) case is a bit large in my opinion. I also find that inserting and retrieving each piece individually from its own protective cut-out within the case padding to be a bit tedious.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this set to anyone who wants a handsome, high quality set for casual play in tight quarters or for analysis.

Excellent chess board and pieces

I've had bad luck with chess boards in the past, but I did my homework this time, and I'm glad it paid off. This board is very solid-feeling, and the pieces are nicely carved and finished. It's nicer-looking that the usual travel board, so its something I don't mind leaving sitting around at home if we're not going to be taking it anywhere soon.

travel set

Thank you for sending be this beautiful set. Unfortunately the carrying case was way bigger than I expected. I was planning on returning it but accidentally stained with spray adhesive. Also, not too big on the smell.

Exactly What I Needed

I wanted a nice set to use for analysis on a small desk in my study. This set fit the bill perfectly. Since the board is one piece (not folding), I can pick up the entire set with pieces in place and move it if I need to do other work on the desk, then move the set back later, without dismantling the position. Exactly what I needed.
