    Impressive detail and quality

    I've had bad experiences with travel sets, they always felt cheap, and almost disposable. Returned two to other vendors, Chesshouse does their homework, and sells quality products. Ordered this one since it kind of matches my FIDE tournament set, and am beyond pleasantly surprised. It's a small set, so don't expect the detail from a 3.75-4 inch set, but my kids and I can't get over how detailed the little pieces are. With the Chess.com clock, we have a blitz set up for anywhere now. Fun to keep this in the car, and play anywhere. Picture below gives you an idea vs a tournament board. Pieces stick to the board, and are easy to move when you want.

    Exceptional customer service and support.

    The travel set that I bought began to separate somewhat. I emailed Chess House for any repair suggestions they may have. I was pleasantly surprised when they chose to replace the set entirely.
    They make a good product and they stand by it.
    Thanks, Rob Coonan

    Arrived early and the quality is outstanding. Exactly what I was looking for

    Wont respond

    I've ordered this chess set in November 23, when it was available for pre-order (and obviously, was charged the same day) and sent a mail asking for an estimated arrival time.
    I was told they cant commit on one, but will probably have it for the holidays -which is lovely, since its a gift, and that they will keep me updated as much as they can. So far so good.
    about a week or so I sent another mail, asking for an update - and been trying to contact them ever since.
    I've yet to receive a respond (honestly, very annoying, since the first time i got a respond quickly).

    Before ordering I looked on the reviews in this site and got the impression everything will go smoothly - however, upon receiving no replay (I've tried to contact them about 5 times) I'm starting to worry.

    Great analysis board

    I use this board to analyze my games or to keep my place as a second board when analyzing using my full sized board. While the bishops could be shaped slightly different to differentiate them from the pawns I would still highly recommend this because of it's durability and the fact that it seems to be of higher quality than what the price tag would suggest.
