I was a bit disappointed in the size of the board. I thought it would be larger. The quality seems good and I am glad there are compartments for the game pieces. I like the unusual octagonal shape, it makes it somewhat unique. This was a Christmas gift and the recipient seemed happy with it. However, I would recommend this item as a "starter" board for someone who has never played chess. An experienced player would be better satisfied choosing a larger board.

Using it for an end table for our couch. Works well. I don't play chess myself, but my husband loves it

My two sons have gotten into playing chess and we had this old board that was falling apart and didn't have any storage for the pieces. They have been leaving it on the kitchen island to play after dinner so I wanted something that I could stand to look at :) This is a very nice set, well made and stores all of the pieces nicely. The only complaint that my kids have is that they wish the pieces were bigger. Other than that a great set. Thanks again overstock!!!

Better than the one I had. This is just the right height for sitting on the couch

I haven't done backgammon yet, but it works great for chess

We've been looking for a nice Chess table for quite awhile. We haven't found one with legs and gave up the search. I saw this set on a daily deal. $75 was a little more than I wanted to spend for a set that wasn't a table, but the set is very nice. The pieces are what sold me, Beautifully carved, not too big or too small. It has Backgammon, Chinese checkers, & cards. It's beautiful on a table. Very nice. No regrets.

I bought this chess set for my grandson. It is lovely. I like that it has two trays to contain pieces. The pieces and board are magnetic, that is a plus. The board is very pretty and well made.

My 10 year old son loves it. The fact that it is magnetized makes it perfect for road trips or even playing on the couch. I love how the pieces store in little drawers on the side. No more lost pieces.

Love the chess set! It was smaller than I had thought but I'm sure that I didn't read the measurements correctly. Great Quality!

Very satisfied with the product, thank you. I like that it has drawers on both sides to hold all the pieces so they do not get lost. Also being magnetized helps the game pieces from toppling over on the board. Anyone who is looking for a wooden chess set should seriously consider this one. Not too big and bulky just right for an intense game of brain challenging play.

I don't really have any experience buying chess sets, 8 yr old grandson asked for it for Christmas. Just got it so I don't really have time to return it and go shopping for a new one. Anyway, the wood inlay seems to be more of a laminate, chess set is really small, guess I expected something larger. The 2 side handles are tiny with 2 little screwes and look like they will break easy. Kind of bummed out with my purchase

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!

This is a great chess set. I bought it for my 15 year old grandson and it's great becausethe pieces are magnetic and if you accidental hit the board the pieces don't move.....plus it comes with it's own storage. That's a plus, too! I think it's a great value.

This purchase was disappointing. The chess pieces are tiny and plastic and the board was very small. Not what I was expecting.

My son asked for a "really nice" chess board for Christmas. This chess board does not disappoint! The board itself looks like beautiful parquet and the felt-lined drawers slide p[en easily. The pieces are made of smooth polished wood, The only detractor is that the board is somewhat small, bur it's still more than OK. My son LOVES it!

This is a great little (smaller than the usual gameboard) chess set. Bought it for my grown son and he and his family are enjoying it thoroughly, since they have a 2 year old that always wants to be involved in any activities, the magnetic part of it is an EXTREME advantage. They are very happy with this chess set and are using it much more than expected. GET IT !!!!san
