I found the same chess set az low as $160, they only reason I chose "chess house" (which is the most expensive one), was
I thought the gold color is the same as the picture on the website, but it is not.
It looks likes all other websites put more realistic pictures than "chess house".
It is a great chess set but you can buy it cheaper.
The Egyptian Chess Set is the most beautiful chess set that I have ever seen. I love the detail. The choice of Hathor as the queen piece is a great touch.
The pieces can be crafted more detailed and the manufacturer should also provide a case for playing board with its pieces.
very finely crafted chessmen with great detail. Smaller than the bigger pieces but still adorable to have under the fingers in all circumstances. Recommended not to risk getting them scratched however.....
My girlfriend and I love chess, and have held out on buying a set for sometime. When we saw this Egyptian themed set, we knew it was time. This set is beautifully crafted, and now serves as a centerpiece in our living room. I highly suggest this set for chess fans and Egyptian culture buffs alike.
