This was Evan's first overnight camping trip to Deer Park in the Olympic mountain range of Washington. One mile above sea level, near the straight of Juan de Fuca he took in breathtaking views in all directions. That evening we played some chess with this set.

This is a beautiful chess set and it was sent so quickly

Great travel set.

This a great travel chess set. Very easy to carry around with you. The only issue I have are some of the dark pieces were not stained very well.


Beautiful and comfortable to to play considering it's portability.

The amount of magnetism is perfect. The pieces stay put on the board in wind or if tilted.

The pieces are easy to identify even in low light or with poor vision.

Best Travel Set

Simply the best travel set I've owned!

Poor Quality Control, Poor Customer Service, Poor Reviews - Caveat Emptor!

First, I would not trust the reviews on this site as this is the second time I am leaving this review as the first time got deleted. Second, this board arrived to me brand new, shipping was quick, that's where the good stops. This board had an extremely foul chemical smell that made anyone who got near it gag, it also had a white film all over it that wont come off (I suspect this substance gave it the chemical smell). I have sent 3 emails (11/30/20, 12/4/20, & 12/7/20) and have called and left (2) voicemails (12/3/20 & 12/8/20) with not a peep back from this company. I left my original bad review on 12/4/20 after no communication other than an email (automated I would have to guess since I cant get a hold of anyone) asking for my review of this item. Well here is my review (for the second time), don't buy this board, don't trust reviews (as it seems the bad get deleted), and don't rely on their customer service. I will be putting in a claim with my CC company to try and get my money back. Its a shame as I have purchased from here before and never had any issues, in fact I still have a back ordered item (its actually back in stock now but again no one will answer me to see if its going to ship soon) I am waiting on, but after this review I don't know if I will trust them again.
