Wonderful chess set. Exactly how it was described.

Very satisfied

Really happy with this chess set. I wanted one with the coords on it, a large size, good color contrast, large pieces, wood.

This one ticks all the boxes. In reality it looks as good as it does in the pics. the pieces feel good in your hands, and are stable.

The only slight disappointment is the interior, which seems to be plastic and a bit flimsy.

This is the best chessboard I was able to find for anything under about $500.

It's a pleasure to play on this board.

Beautiful set

After waiting months for the black set to come in , I was offered to get the brown set. I settled for the brown one and It really is a beautiful set though I still am partial to the black one. The company was very professional and kept me informed of the manufacturer delay. I know they did their best. I do hope they get the black one soon as I would like to get another one.

Amazing Customer Service

First, this chess set is absolutely beautiful! More importantly though, I cannot say enough about the customer service from Chess House. There were some issues with getting this set from the manufacturer and the extremely high demand after The Queen's Gambit. However, Chess House was completely transparent with me and provided updates along the way. I have never had a company be so open with me! Thank you, Chess House, for the excellent customer service! Five stars!

Strategy A Way of Life

Adding a little spice to an empty nest has been fun. Our intrigue with Chess House was that each set is made by people with a passion. You can see the set is now a part of our story. The handmade set was exactly what we were looking for when thinking of adding a new game to the table.
