I was having difficulty finding a chess set for a gift, but this was a perfect solution. It arrived quickly and was just what we wanted.

I was disappointed with this chess set. It seems to be cheaply made, especially the wooden board.

From What I was able to see in the box, everything looks great. My son works around trucks and cars, so I tought this would be great for Christmas for him, since he likes to play chess

This was suppose to be a gift but I changed my mind after receiving it! Due to the fact it looked like someone else had been using the set with all the scratches and nick on it. Didn't want the person to think I was giving them something used.

The chess set was a replacement gift to my oldest son. Who did not receive one a Christmas (ordered from a different establishment) it turned out better than the one's I purchased for my other children. Very elegant.

I don't really believe this set is up to your standards. The boards on all 3 sets I finally received were not level and there were broken pieces in the first set. It actually took 3 sets to get a complete set. We used the board from one set and the pieces from another to make it work. I still had to touch up a couple of the black pieces with a marker due to tiny chips showing white. This is the first time I have had this type of experience with Overstock. It was handled well on your end and the replacement issue was relatively pain free. I won't order this Chess set for anyone else as a gift but it doesn't diminish the track record over an eight year period with Overstock.

I would go with the 12" it's nice, but it could be larger! Also it doesn't come with felt pieces

The product is good enough quality. I wanted something that wasn't too big and could be displayed on a mantelpiece. This meets that goal.

Beautiful board and pieces. One did arrive broken, but glued easily. Quality set for a good price.

This board has been an eyecatcher and conversation piece for everyone that has come in contact with it ...a must have!!

the set feels very nice and there is a similarity in pawns and bishops ,rooks and queens ; need to focus on your pieces . For some this is an advantage others a disadvantage , and that makes it as well .

I was quite excited to see the chest set I ordered as a gift. But when we unpacked it and opened it up...quite a different story. It was much smaller than advertised and one of the pieces was broke when we opened it. Quite disappointing-- not very sturdy.

This set is much smaller than it appears online. It could almost be categorized as a 'mini' chess set. It is, however, beautiful and well made. This chess set is for my eight year old son and I'm a little apprehensive about how the size of the board will affect his game. This may become our 'travel' set while we purchase a larger board for home use.

I was very impressed with the quality of the chess set that was sent. It was beautifully made and the pieces were kept in a soft protective coating, each carved very nicely. The only minor hitch was that the top of the black king and queen were slightly scratched leaving a white mark against the black paint. Despite that the peices were beautifully made and the carving was exceptional, in addition the playing board is well designed and put together and holds the pieces well.

I was very happy with the quality and the price of the Carved Soapstone chess set. It was reasonable priced and beautiful quality. Details of the chess pieces were wonderful.

The product arrived without any damage, the pieces are nice and of a good size, the board is very well done, everything is wonderfully crafted.

This is a very beautiful chess set. I would buy this set again. It is priced just right and quality is good. The felt pads on the bottom of each piece could be better but that is minor. They easily could be replaced . The stone pieces are beautiful.
