With piece storage inside, this chess and checker chest is a fun chess set for the home and family. Without the extra detail, it comes at a lower price point than most chess sets with inside storage that includes a felted plastic insert with spots for each piece.
And if a pet ever eats a piece, just request a replacement - that's just one benefit of ordering with Chess House.

Cheap materials. Quite disappointing.
The look of the chess set is very nice as well as the pieces, however the corner of our board is not joined securely leaving a gap and unfortunately a cheap feel to it. Because of this it is not quite the quality I expected, but I am not sure if it is due to shipping or how it was made. Either way, for the price we paid I am a little disappointed.
