Nice chess set; great customer service

The chess set that I purchased is very nice though a couple of the pieces have quickly developed a rattle, as if the weight inside the base became loose, a little annoying. Overall, the quality of the board, storage box, and pieces is good. The size of the pieces is nice for game play and they have a satisfying weight to them. The algebraic notations on the margins of the board are nice for a beginner going over games from books. I had an issue with one missing piece and one defective piece but Chess House was very quick to respond with a fix for the issues as soon as they were notified. The set was a Christmas present for a very delighted youngster who absolutely loves it and is thrilled to have his first wooden chess set.

Great board!

The only bad thing was that the felt on my pon was off center I just took it off and reglued it but besides that great set!

Great quality, can’t wait to give it to my son!

This set is awesome and my first experience with a nice quality set. It is such a major level up from what you buy in the local big box store. The board and pieces are so… substantial and well-made. It’s kind of like upgrading from a thin, beat-up aluminum frying pan to an enameled cast iron one. The pieces are nice and heavy, and stay right where you put them. Bought as a Christmas gift for our 14 y.o. son, and it will be all I can do to resist busting it out before then.
I know there are “fancier” sets out there but this one is easily heirloom quality and just top-notch, in my opinion.

Chess Set

This was a gift for our son and he absolutely loved it, great set.

Heavily weighted?

It's a pretty good set, especially the packaging and the board. The pieces were a little dirty and had to wipe them off. It says they're 'heavily weighted.' I'd say lightly weighted would be more accurate. It's ok but for $200 I expected higher quality in the pieces. The shipping time was as expected and it was packaged nicely.
