Product Details

The unmistakable feel of these heavily weighted pieces gives a positive touch to your game. Extra weight near the base of the pieces makes them very stable, highly recommended for blitz chess. These pieces were reproduced in a more brilliant yellow color for 2018 and increased in size marginally to the current 3.75" tall.

Pieces are finished with real green felt and weigh in at 3lbs 14oz in total, one of the heaviest sets available. They do come with extra queens as well and the total set weight includes those extra queens.

Specifications:

  • King height: 3 3/4"
  • King base: 1 5/8"
  • Green felt bases
  • Extra queens included, 34 pieces
  • King weight: 3.0oz
  • Set weight: 3 lbs. 14 oz.

Ugliest set in the world

Disgusting color. Well done on ruining one of the best sets. It’s now the ugliest set in existence..

You seem to have some really strong feelings about this set. So do we. It needs improvement and that's why it's no longer for sale. Until it's back to original specs or better. To be clear it's not our design so we have to wait for the maker to improve on it. Actual buyers of the set mostly like it, but then again they have seen the color and know what they are buying.

Nice Set of Pieces and Nice weight

The butter yellow is a nice distinction that differentiates this set from a lot of other sets. Some may be turned off by it but I like that it makes it stand out. The set is very nicely weighted and the pieces have a very nice center of gravity making this set a good candidate for fast blitz games.

Love the butter!

So much has been said about the color of the white pieces in this set but I love the butter yellow! Really makes it stand out from every other set. PLUS - This is just an amazing set of chess pieces. Solidly made with a good heft that makes a satisfying thud with every move. Really happy with this purchase!!

I ordered my set with a green vinyl board and I'm loving the board too. The green and buff colorway is just right and it looks like it's going to last a good long time.

One of my black pawns was a bit deformed (hey, they're plastic - this stuff happens) but chesshouse sent me out a new one no questions asked. Great product, great service!!

good quality, unusual color

The yellow color is extremely unusual on this great plastic chess set. If you are ok with the color then this set would be 5 stars for you. I would assume however that most people would have preferred a more neutral tone (sand, camel, natural etc etc)

Beyond the color the weight of the pieces and their shape is great, one of if not the best plastic set out there. These pieces are larger than the more common club sized pieces (ones with 1,5 inch king base) and so look far more at home on the 2.25 inch squares board and perhaps an even larger (2 3/8 inch squares)

Once these sets sell out (which may take awhile due to color) and a new batch is ordered using more standard color (I am almost sure yellow must have been by mistake) I would gladly order another set. Or two.

Again over all great set, but just shy of being a legendary one that it could have been.
