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.

Great little magnetic set

The folding milled-leather-covered board is attractive and sturdy, yet lightweight, and the wooden pieces attractive. The set includes two bags: a long one for the board and a smaller one for the pieces. Both of them zip shut. I love it.

Best travel set for sale!!!!

I absolutely love this set. I can't understand how anyone could not like it. The board is a nice leather. Yes, it may not lay 100% flat, but it doesn't matter as it lays 95% flat, looks nice and functions great. The pieces are the best travel pieces I've laid my hands on - very elegant for such a small set. They are made from wood, not cheap plastic. The magnets are strong, hold the pieces on the board without issue, and not too firm that it is annoying each time you make a move. The extra queens are a really nice touch. In fact, I bought replacement white and black pawns ($1 each) when I ordered the set just in case I lose one while traveling. In the pictures I included a photo with a few pieces from the 4" Executive set so you'd have a nice reference of sizing. The two bags are of better quality than I expected. They are very thick (like a padding) and lined with soft cloth. Finally, the best thing about this set is knowing you have the outstanding customer service of the Chess House team backing up the product. Just buy it. You won't regret it.

A nicely milled leather board, but the pieces are a lessor quality. The bag set is also not together for travel convenience. The quality of the set can be improve overall, especially the pieces and an all in one travel case or bag would be great to have.
