The pieces are of higher quality than i expected.

i had another plastic set falling apart after only a few sessions with kids. The weights inside were falling out (hazardous!) and pieces of the rooks' crown had come off, etc. so i bought this set partly because it is not weighted. Its isn't cheaply made, however. The pieces are solid and the felt on their soles are not to be torn off easily. I can tell these pieces will prove to be very durable.

The bag it came with surprised me when i saw it. It holds the pieces and leaves space for another set of darks or lights. The bag is made of vinyl, like the board, and i don't know how else to say it but it feels really good. Like on your skin i'm saying, you could fill it with feathers and use it as a pillow. It's just a quality material, sleek and comfortable (i bought green and blue).

The board has a great feel too. I got the colours brown and green and they are both crisp and good looking.

Perhaps it is due to re-buying headphones every two months for the last several years but i'm overwhelmed with the quality of the purchases i've made at i may add that the local chess set purchase i made before them costed me $30+ and the pieces were not, nor the board, nor the bag, near the quality of the Chesshouse set . I guess that manufacturing a chess set isn't trivial and these guys are putting in the time so i'll be buying more ...before my review filters into their prices.


Just bought 15 more boards. We have 50 now for our 2nd graders. For the money these are a very good board for the kids. They sometimes play tug of war when we aren't looking and so far none of the boards have been wrecked. Sometimes they will get bent by the kids but we lay them flat for a few days and they look fine.

Someone wrote that they smell bad. We haven't noticed that and none of the kids have said anything. They even fold them over their heads sometimes and no complaints of any bad smell.

2nd graders are rough on things and we can't complain about any of these chessboards.

stinking chess board

The Vinyl chess board emits a toxic stench and is unusable indoors.

Great quality and great customer service

I have purchased three of these sets for my children and have have been pleased with all of them. Chess House also has great customer service. The shipping company damaged my order, but when I called Chess House, they rushed me a replacement to be here in time for my daughter’s birthday.

Great chess set

My students love it nice size for entry level players.
