I had purchased these Poland-made storage box chess sets before, so I had a good idea what I was getting. This particular set comes at the perfect size for an overall work horse for a chess set. Since it has two compartments inside to store the chess pieces as opposed to the individual depressions for each piece, take down and set up is easy and fast. And, the box closes clean without adjustments to the pieces inside having to be adjusted or readjusted. I put this set under my arm when I go out and throw it in the back seat just in case I come across someone that wants a game. It's small enough for a "take it with you" set and large enough to be considered almost full size. One thing I will say about all these "Poland-made" storage box chess sets is that once the game is done and the pieces put in the box, the table where the board set has to be wiped off to get off all the little green particles left from the green lining inside the boxes...the damp paper towel I used is green with the stuff. When I first got the set, I took a vacuum with a brush attachment and tried to clean the green lining of the box to get all that residue. But, the table still has to be wiped to get off the green residue. I imagine over time and use that will be less necessary. Regardless, had I to do it over again, I would definitely buy this set again and would recommend it to anyone.
