I was looking for a board to help study, but because I live in a small apartment it couldn't stay out all the time. I liked that this one was small enough I could put it on my shelf, but big enough that it was useful to use alongside a book. I liked that it didn't fold and was magnetic so I could put the board on the shelf without having to reaet the pieces. Finally I liked that it looked nice since it would he visible. So I went ahead and ordered and I was not disappointed at all, it turned out to be exactly what I wanted. If you're looking for something similar, I would recommend.
The quality is good and the price is great. The best part is the pieces are magnetic and you can stow everything away in the case when you’re finished. Would highly recommend!
This chess set has personality. I appreciate the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and portability. Very glad I happened upon this website. I had a small issue with my original order, and Chess House resolved the problem quickly. Truly a pleasure to do business with them. I’ll be buying more sets soon.
Nice enough to gift.
Elegant to play or display.
Small enough to fit and carry.
Large enough for studying the game.
Magnetic for stability.
One of my all-time favourite chess sets.
Nice chessset the Magnets could be stronger.
