    Love It!

    I love it. The quality of the board and pieces are excellent, and the set is just the right size. The level of magnetism between the board and the pieces are just right. The pieces stay in place, but are not hard or in any way a nuisance to pick-up while the game is in play. This is definitely a go to gift item. I'm very happy with my purchase.

    An original cool set

    I've imported this product from Spain and, although it has been extraordinarily expensive due to customs taxes, it has been worth it because I don't think I've seen such a nice, manageable and well-constructed chess set across Europe. I love rounded corners; the board is perfect; the size is ideal, neither too big nor too small; the pieces are constructed with a lot of detail and have good touch; the magnets allow you to turn it around and move it without the pieces getting out of place. To mention some faults, I had to leave it outdoors several days to remove the smell of varnish; the case, although robust, brought many loose uncut threads and a small defective stitching area; one of the white pieces is slightly darker than the rest and a white tower has more battlements because it presents two extra slits that should not be there. However, they're small understandable details when it comes to a craft product.

    An excellent set

    Picked up the 8” version and love it. The magnets do not feel strong but you can invert the board and shake it without any pieces moving. The built in slots for the chess pieces is a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this set. Oh, no smell that others have mentioned.

    Nice Board

    Very cute and strong magnets for the pieces.

    Better than expected

    I was hesitant on trying a new type of travel set, but this one is really well designed. Strong magnets, gorgeous (given their size) board and pieces. The craftsmanship is very well done. This set lives in my car to play with friends over a beer. Definitely would buy it again and strongly recommend it to friends. I have owned three different travel sets, and this is by far the best one.
