This is a nice little chess set - smaller than I expected but not too small and very portable. It is well made and the drawers are designed so that you have to pull from both sides to open it - that keeps them from accidentally slipping open. The pieces seem hand carved and are attractive. Everything is wood and feels much nicer than plastic. The magnets aren't very strong but will hold the pieces in place if bumped or on a car ride. I feel like this chess board is solid and will last a while. I'm happy.
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.

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
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!
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!
The board came in decent condition other than the top was warped a bit. I have had it for about a month now and the seams on the board between the dark and light squares are starting to separate. Other than that it is a really nice portable layout. I wish they had put a little more attention into the board top. A nice solid top would have made this the perfect set in my opinion.

Are the chess pieces black and dark wood colored or are they white and dark wood colored? The color of the pieces are different in the picture on the box than other pictures. Which one is accurate? Is there a choice? May I pick? I don't want black chess pieces. I would like white and wood colored.crystal180 on Mar 30, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
