It was a gift and it hadn’t been opened yet.
My wife and I are enjoying re-learning a game we loved as children . This is the perfect chess set for us to use together and to teach the game we love to our grandchildren. Best feature - you don’t need to plug it in and it doesn’t require batteries.
I could have bought a cheap starter set at big retailers, but I wanted something nice and something that will be around for a long time. This set not only meets my criteria, but exceeds my expectations. Well made and big enough that anyone can play without fumbling small, plastic pieces on a small board.
Great set for the price. Everything is just as advertised.
