Great for Analysis

I bought this board primarily for home analysis, to stop annoying my spouse with the permanently set up tournament sized board on the kitchen table. It suits this need perfectly. I keep it on my desk and use it for various things, setting up puzzles, playing through games, etc.

It’s so easy to move around to the couch, the bedroom, etc. Given that I don’t intend on really traveling with it I think I would have liked the 12” board more for analysis, but I was impatient. This one is perfect.

I didn’t notice until I was taking these photos that one knight is significantly darker than the other but it doesn’t really bother me

Very nice small chess set

This set is well made and easy on the eyes. Nicely proportioned with a handsome case. The magnetic attraction is nicely tight. Very happy with it!

Awesome board, but I tore the piece holder out

Love the board. Such great quality and my kids think the small pieces are so cool. We use it when we go out to dinner. I did tear out the piece storage and we just keep the pieces in a bag because it's a little arduous to get every piece out to set up. We're more of a "dump it out and get going" kind of family. I wish that storage was a bit shallower and user-friendly, but that's probably unreasonable to ask for at this price point.

If I was the inventor/maker, what I'd actually do is make the king's top a little less breakable and put memory / soft foam in the top of the case so you could simply close it up and leave it ready to play at all times. I may try to finagle that with this set, although the king tops might have to come off to make that work.

A no-brainer purchase if this is what you're looking for, though!
