My 17 year old son requested this. He had a huge smile on his face and loves it. Very beautifully made. No complaints

Quality at a cost

I received my 21" Ambassador chess set last week. My girlfriend has been getting into chess and I wanted a board with "traditional" shaped pieces to help a beginner player. Being a larger 21" board, the pieces are larger in size and look great. I like the two tone wood accents on many of the pieces. The "wood burnt" look etching on some of the pieces looks more like its printed on if that description makes sense, but overall the pieces look quality. The board detail is very nice. The coloration of the staining is very good and clean and the etchings and details around the border make it look like a board worthy of display. The set is a bit pricey, but in my opinion it is worth it for a quality board.
