Beautiful Chess Set

I bought this chess set to have a board that I could hold in my lap while studying chess. The magnetic chess pieces hold well on the board. I can carry it from room to room with no issues. I prefer the 12" version to smaller versions. It is the perfect size for my needs. This board is beautiful, and the pieces are large enough to be easily used. This is a beautiful and functional alternative to the more common analysis sets with plastic pieces on a vinyl board.

Great product

I love this board and the case allows for easy travel. My only complaint is the zipper for thin cover that goes over the case broke after the 3rd day. Other than that it’s a perfect board

Beautiful craftmanship, greate customer service

Love this chess set. It's small enough to carry around to play with friends and family, but big enough to play comfortably. ChessHouse customer service is amazing. There're some damage with 2 pieces when the product arrive, I took the photos of the damage pieces and sent it to them, and they respond almost immediately to have pieces replaced. I would definitely buy more set from ChessHouse. They have a lot of nice design sets

Good support for after sales

I really love the the chess set. Glossy nice pieces. Customer support is the best. 1 black king piece has bad magnet, chesshouse. com immediately send replacement without any extra cost all the way to Asia. Kudos to this company for good customer service.

Brian MacIntyre
As advertised

It was worth the wait. The entire set is high quality. The pieces are finished with a nice gloss which gives the set a feeling of class. The board has been very well constructed. The felt on the bottom of the board and pieces provide protection as well as adding to the quality feel of the set. I keep the set where visitors can see it. I highly recommend this set. I wish my game was as good.
