A fantastic set for all levels of play from starting out to experts. Sometimes known "German" design is a timeless representation of simplicity. It has sold in the many 10's of thousands and remains to be a set of choice for the home and all kinds of casual chess play. With no sharp points to break, it can withstand years of chess play or study and if pieces are ever lost we make it easy to replace.
The style is also seen in the DGT Timeless pieces used on the E-Board line and which has seen competitive play at the highest levels.
Compliment 2" to 2.25" squares chess board or the one(s) play-tested shown. I like how great they look on the 21.6" De Luxe Macassar Chess Board with 2 1/8" squares as shown. If you want a more economical option, the 19" Board with coordinates and 2" square is also a good fit.

I would have given this 3 stars.... BUT..
First of all, the pieces are craftedly nicely with dark brown colored sheesham which I found aesthtically pleasing. The weight of the pieces are just perfect, with all pieces evenly weighted with there opposing colors. The only problem was that two black pawns and one white pawn did not stand balanced. When moving them on the board they would wobble. The one white pawn even made rattling noise, probably from the loose weights inside.
I reported this in their email support and immediately they responded back and they were very happy to send a new replacement.
The replacements came in a few days early.
They sent me me 2 black pawns and 1 white pawn. The white pawn is a perfect match with the other white pieces. One black pawn was a perfect match, but the second pawn looked like it was from another set. It was lighter brown and the style was obviously different.
Now what I did was peel off the billiard felt on and unbalanced piece and sandpapered it down than proceeded to glue the felt. It feels a bit better..
The pieces I HIGHLY recommended to beginners to masters.
I was gonna give this a three because of the minor flaws
BUT the customer service for ChessHouse.com is unbeatable. These guys are still my favorite chess company to purchase from.
I love the proportions of the set. And I love even more that it’s the set that Magnus and Vishy and Fabi and everyone plays on, in European tournaments. I was delighted when I discovered I could buy it from Chess House, at a very reasonable price!
Nice wood pieces, great feel from the added weight, very satisfied with quality and delivery.
I bought it for my son like a Christmas present. He likes the color and quality very much!
The set is very nice, with a nice finish and the pieces have a nice weight and feel to them. I bought this set for my family of 6. They are enjoying it very much and it also looks very nice in our office/den.
