Very beautiful pieces. I have the DGT Smartboard, which originally came with the heavy-weighted plastic pieces. However, while they are a lot better than I expected, the plastic pieces tend to slip out of my hands a lot, especially the Knights for some reason, which always makes me a little nervous because I always think that I will eventually knock loose the sensor inside the pieces. I always wanted the DGT Timeless pieces, but when I bought the DGT Smartboard, the plastic pieces were the ones included. Finally, I just went ahead and bit the bullet and purchased the Timeless pieces. These pieces are very beautiful. I especially like the style of the Knights. I thought they would be weighted a bit heavier than they are, but after a few games with them, I realized that they are weighted perfectly. Not too heavy, and not too light. Perfectly in-between. I very rarely drop these because they aren't bulky or slippery. Plus, they also look good on the plastic (simulated wood-looking) DGT smartboard.
