Very satisfied with the product, thank you. I like that it has drawers on both sides to hold all the pieces so they do not get lost. Also being magnetized helps the game pieces from toppling over on the board. Anyone who is looking for a wooden chess set should seriously consider this one. Not too big and bulky just right for an intense game of brain challenging play.
This is on the smaller side (note the dimensions - fine for me, but be sure). But wow, the details. 2 pull-out drawers to store the pieces (hint: pull both handles at the same time; they are on a shared track and are meant to come out together - it's not, as a past review said I believe, that they stick or are hard to open). Beautiful inlaid wood -- super well done, and I'm picky. But also - I'd missed this detail - the board and pieces are magnetized. So no spilling the pieces off the board when my kid and I are playing on his bed and a dog jumps up to say high. Really great.
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
