I love the base...but the chess pieces are so close in color and not like the picture....Kings cross was broken off....just E-6000 it....Painted a Black Dot in Black Nail Polish to tell the difference......like the material, but nees work if they are trying to sell the Picture...the real thing doesn't look like what's shown...
This small chess set is perfect for my 6 yr old son. The pieces are magnetic so they don't fall off easily. The drawers are great for storing the pieces when not in use. My only complaint is you cannot open 1 drawer alone, you have to open both at the same time... it's a bit awkward. Overall, great product for new Chess player!
The portability and smaller size of this chess set is a great perk to a beautifully crafted chess set. We love the beauty of the pieces and the board. It is a nice solid set. Getting 2 was perfect so I could keep one for m family while passing along the fun. Loved this so much we bought a replacement set when ours was lost.
Several folks have trashed this chess set but I think it has wonderful possibilities. First the chess pieces are very beautiful but being resin they can break especially the bishops head. The plastic molded insert that holds the pieces in place is functional. I made the following alterations to the set. First I injected liquid insulating foam into the spaces formed by the plastic insert. This firmed up the insert and added mass to the box. Second, I sprayed the exterior of the box with 7 coats of lacquer for a beautiful finish. Lastly I filled in the joints with wood filler and painted it to match. The set now looks like a *** set. You can make a silk purse from a sows ear.
