Great board and much nicer than the typical Amazon cheap options

Really impressed with the quality of this board and pieces. Very sturdy and substantial feeling and weighted all around. Board also lays perfectly flat and magnetism is just right. Much nicer than the Chinese Amazon cheapo options.
Only mini cosmetic complaint is that I think the gold latches look dated and don't match the overall super appearance of the rest of the board.

Would definitely recommend.

Great Traveling Chess Set!

Very good quality chess set, ideal for traveling. All chess pieces fit well inside the board, and it has been perfect for my chess strategy work while on the road. Very satisfied with this purchase. Chesshouse is by far the best company I have ever worked with for anything chess related. I look forward to continue being a repeat customer for years to come!

Really well made!

Bought this for my dad for Christmas. He loves it. It’s really well made and the magnetic quality is a great touch. Also, the foam forms for the pieces is really nice. The pieces stay in their places.

Shotty craftsmanship

Half the black pieces fall out if I open it with white piece side down, the locks don’t close properly and wasn’t put on straight. One is more crooked than the other. The board doesn’t lay flat, feels like an uphill battle most of the game. I can’t tell if there’s an impingement at the bottom, or if the felt is too tight butMagnetic is a good touch when I need to pick it up and move it. It’s a good set, but not with the $160 I paid for it.
