    Everything as advertised but shaky QC

    I bought this set for my birthday and everything was as advertised but 2-3 of the black squares had significant discoloration (see photos attached). Returning for a refund was easy, I was sent a prepaid return label to print and send back, however they are making me pay for the return costs, which subtracts $16 from my refund. I expect that is because I'm returning the set for a refund instead of having it replaced because there are other things about the set that I didn't like (none that weren't advertised, for example, after seeing and feeling the set I realized that I really wanted larger squares and weighted pieces) and expect that I wouldn't have been charged to replace the board with a undiscolored one but it still left a bad taste in my mouth to be charged for the cost of returning a bad QC'd set for a refund.

    Primary materials are solid, but details are lacking

    The quality of the materials for the board and pieces are well done and I anticipate will last a long time. As others have mentioned, the details are a bit lacking. The clasp is quite feeble and the storage liner is made of a cheap felt-lined plastic that the pieces tend to shake around within. A foam insert might make for a more snug fit. Although I don’t think this is strictly labeled as a Staunton style set, was mildly disappointed that the bishop pieces lacked that classic "notch" in the mitre.

    Nice chess set

    Pieces have a great feel and weight to them and the board is quite attractive. The only drawback is lack of a case or cover, even if a simple, durable cloth (only reason for 4 starts).
