Bought this for my nephew's second birthday. I pulled it out of the box and one of the wheels fell off, nothing a little glue won't fix. Other than that it is a nice product and he will enjoy pulling it around the house. Nice & simple toy, leave endless possibilities to the imagination.

Good stone chess set for someone who wants something nicer than plastic pieces~ but isn't really ready to get a full blown expensive stone set yet. The stone on the board is nicely constructed and perfectly smooth to the touch, the pieces are decently carved(could be better, but I'm still satisfied). I love that the board has built in case to store the pieces when they're not in use~ the interior liner is as cheap as can be(I may replace it myself if it ever gives me flak), but does the job and didn't greatly impact my overall pleasure with the purchase.

I was very excited when I received the chess set. I took the wrapping off and went to open it. The latches were all rusted. I was going to use it for a silent auction item for one of our events. The rusted latches deemed or made it appear as though the item was used and not new.

This was bought as a gift for my husband who has lost his previous chess set in a move. This is a beautiful replacement and he and our son fully enjoy it!

This was purchased for a 14 year old young man who has been playing chess for about 6 years. He has started to collect chess sets and I was looking for something a little more sophisticated and elegant but rugged enough to withstand multi-game tournaments. I found that in this product. It is beautiful and wonderfully crafted. The wooden 'table' is a hinged case with a cushioned velvety interior with individual slots for the soapstone pieces. The chessmen are individual works of art. There is a note inside stating that each piece is hand crafted, caveat emptor in your belief of this, however true or not they are amazing to behold. The size of the pieces is perfect for a moderately advanced novice to start using. Each different man is easily distinguished from the others and that is important not to have a pawn and a bishop who resemble each other too greatly. This is an elegantly crafted sophisticated chess set that handles easily and is compact enough to travel and has become the favorite chess set to date.

I was a little uneasy about my purchase at first because of the price...you know, you get what you paid for. But this chess set surpassed even my hopeful expectations. It's absolutely beautiful and looks like I paid 3 times the amount I did.

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.

The chess set was the perfect one I was looking for. It's unique and the peices have a good weight. I added felt to the bottom of the pieces which was easy.

This was gift for my 28 yr old son. The board is very nice as is the velvet lined individual storage. Pieces are fragile. This will be an issue for him as he wants to teach his little girl chess. It was well wrapped & packaged, but one of the pieces arrived broken. My son wanted to keep it, so he glued it back together. I m sure he will replace the pieces eventually, so the storage probably then will be a mute point- hard to find new pieces to fit the storage shapes of these pieces

I bought this set for my Grandson. I wanted pieces that were heavier than the standard plastic sets. The case/ board was very sturdy and nice looking. The pieces had a solid feel to them. My only problem is that two pieces became disconnected from their base and had to be glued back on.

Chess Board of good quality, chess pieces arrived broken.

This was an excellent gift for my boyfriend. The only problem we have had is that pieces break very easily, but with such a delicate material that is to be expected. The board and storage is very nice.

The chess set was less than what I expected. It was very small and I received it damaged (broken chess pieces). I will be returning this item.

Things you should know: 1. The image on the site and the product are different. For instance the pawn is half the size (my girlfriend accurately described them as "missing their torsos" as compared with the photo). I returned the first set because of this, asked them to send me something at least close to the photographed product, and received the exact same thing except... 2. Pieces were broken. Each piece is made of two parts and roughly glued together, but one king arrived in two pieces. However, even if they stay in tact, pieces were often chipped. For example a black bishop was chipped exposing a large patch of white, unsightly stone beneath. 3. If you care about the interior (I don't), it's not put together well. The case feels like it might fall apart at any given moment. I was sitting there thinking "I could glue the king back together and use a marker to color the stone and buy a finish for the interior wood and buy new hinges and...wait - didn't I just buy this?" I was hoping to buy a nice chessboard at a decent price, but this was not it.

Well crafted. Bought this as a thank you gift. You can see this was made with talent.

Bought as a gift for a couple that are very choosey about what they like (and they have everything) they loved this set.

I was very excited to purchase this set. It came to me in two days, but to my disappointment, the side of the chess set was cracked. The shipping box was in excellent shape so I know it wasn't a shipping problem. Soapstone is a very weak stone. I sent it back without wanting another one sent to me. The case itself was pretty but the crack wasn't.

I was looking to purchase a chess set for my friend's daughter for her birthday. I went on Overstock.com and found a nice selection from which to choose. I had the chess set delivered to my friend's home which made it very convenient since I could not be there for the birthday party. Very easy, great selection and quick and cheap delivery - all around, a great experience. I will definitely use Overstock.com again.

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.

Rating systems used to be so simple. Everyone understands the standard film industry rating system, and each rating is carefully described before the movie begins. Video games are different.
