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.
I have ordered this as a Christmas present and was very pleased with the quality for the price. The size of the board is a bit smaller than the average chess set but for something that will be stored it is perfect.
