Amazing quality

Really nice chess set. Amazing quality and build. The only problem I have with it is that the pieces don’t weigh as much as I like but that’s such a small problem it barely even matters.

Etching is not all there

My kids are enjoying chess so I decided to get an early Christmas gift for them. While we do love the the chess for the size and material, the etching is not all there. This isn’t just certain numbers and letters, both boards the have etching that are incomplete/ unlegible. I wished the final product would’ve been reviewed or checked before completion and sent out to me. All in all, a good starter piece.


Ambassador 21” is Amazing. Everything as expected and more. Very satisfied. Highly recommend.

21" Ambassador Wooden Chess Set

This chess set is very disappointing due to the notations, which is why I ordered the board in the first place. The notations are not clearly marked, or they look like a burnt mark. One of the latches doesn't fully lock into place either. This will be the last chess set I buy from Chess House.


Really liked this beautiful chess set! For the price point, the pieces were well-made and the board is lovely as well!!
