Here's a new combo available for a limited time, featuring club series chessmen on a smoothly finished board and a complimentary 32-chessmen box with red lining, all in midnight colors. You'll get extra queens too though for those exciting games where you promote a pawn and get an extra queen on the board!
The French series chessmen are the definition of elegant form and function and a well recognized Staunton design. Designed to withstand rigorous play, the quality, and craftsmanship are superior to many chessmen in the price range. This means you'll have a set that will delight the chess player game after game.
The sturdy pieces are heavily weighted for that amazing feel and have no delicate points to break or chip. Felted for smooth play and protection of a wooden chessboard surface, the boxwood pieces are made by some of the world's best India craftsmen and are polished and stained for the wonderful look and feel you will enjoy for a long, long time.
Chess notation coordinates along all four sides of the board are helpful for new players to replay recorded chess games. It's also helpful for beginners to record their games.

I love it. Well crafted, sturdy, good size for manipulation. The board is very aesthetically pleasing. Comes with a case to store all of the pieces. Great buy for the money. Now, if I could just beat my son.
First off, very solid board and pieces, well crafted, top quality. My only issue is with the included case for the pieces. This set includes an extra Queen for each color, however the Case shipped with this set would not accommodate them. I would like to know where I could find a case that will fit all the included pieces.
Estoy muy gratamente sorprendido de la atención atención al cliente y de la calidad del producto definitivamente recomiendo comprar en chess house!!!
