Carved wooden chess pieces
Octagonal wooden chess board with two (2) storage drawers
King height: 2.5 inches
Board dimensions: 8 inches high x 8 inches wide
Overall dimensions: 13.5 inches high x 13 inches wide x 2.5 inches deep
Beautiful wooden set at a very reasonable price! The shape is elegant and I like that it's raised in height. There are two drawers on each side to store chess and checkers pieces. The drawers are lined with felt to protect them. The pieces look hand carved. I particularly like the darker pieces and the base of the set as the wood is beautifully stained and has pretty light gold highlights in it. Would definitely recommend this set for an avid chess player.

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!!!

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.
