Overall good value for the price but 2 issues. 1) It would be very easy to assemble if it came with instructions. However, without instructions the 1st one I received was impossible to assemble. On the replacement table the top piece on the pedestal, that has to be unscrewed and screwed onto the bottom after the legs are slide into the grooves, was loose. Since it was loose I was able to see what had to be done. On the first one there was no way to see that the top came off. 2) The colors of the points on the backgammon board are too similar.
Overstock's response when I had a problem with assembly was fast and extremely courteous. I strongly recommend Overstock.
Love the way the table looks and fits with my current décor. Instead of ashtrays on each corner, wish they would make deeper wells to hold drinks better. Also, the supplier of the game pieces apparently does not know how many "stones" are required to play backgammon as they shorted me 6 pieces. OS.com did contact the supplier immediately and a new set of game pieces were sent out in a timely manner. Same problem, but at least I could combine the backgammon stones to get a whole set!
Just be sure you realize before buying this chess table, that it is only 27 inches high! Really more suited for children or elves. It would not be conducive to enjoyable, comfortable game play by adults by any means.
My kids had this game as children and loved it. Now 40 years later I bought it again for our grandkids and our kids as a family game and they all love it. Its a mulit game, game board and they never get tired of it. It gets them back to communicating with each other. a great game!!
I purchased this chess set for my 9 year old Grandson. He & his twin sister are learning chess from my husband. They plan on joining the Chess Club at their school & the self-storing pieces in this beautiful set make transporting it to & from school very convenient. As it is such a attractive piece, it sits on the table in their home for 'spur of the moment' games!
