Folding wood chess set has Spartan theme plastic pieces that are great for the family and those on a tight budgets because most character sets are priced much higher. Because these detailed pieces are made of plastic they safe and durable. The decorative and very playable folding chess board has an insert tray that fits these chessmen perfectly.
The chessmen are golden & black plastic. The chess board is hand crafted in Poland from beech and birch woods.

I really like the Spartan chess set. The pieces are well detailed with a nice weight. The board itself feels like the wood is rather thin. The letter and numbering around the edge was poorly executed. About half the letters and numbers are faded.
I placed a sheet of bubble wrap over the pieces so that they stay in place; otherwise they scramble about when the box is turned over.
The clasps are nice and the hinge is protected from opening too far.
I think it should have been offered at a discount because of the imperfections.
