About six months ago I requested to be notified when the set is available. About 17 days ago i was notified and the net day I ordered it. I expected the price go up but it was the same as six months ago. I received the set six days later. It was in perfect condition; the pieces and the box alike.
This set is a must for an avid chess player; it's beautiful, stylish and functional. Can be set up as a display in any room for decoration, to play it and to remind one of the heroic attempt of the major slave uprising in the Roman Empire in 73 B.C. I bought another set before this was available, the pieces only, from a different vendor, which cost over $280 and had to buy a board separately. So this was a really good deal. I recommend it for those who love chess.
