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.
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 so happy to find this chess set at an excellent price on cyber Monday. It is a beautiful high quality set and was delivered quickly. I purchased it for my 14 year old son. He was pleased to receive a grown up chess set to replace his worn out plastic set from Toys R Us. It was great to support an artisan from India. Only negative - sometimes it is hard to distinguish between the different pieces.
This is a nice little chess set - smaller than I expected but not too small and very portable. It is well made and the drawers are designed so that you have to pull from both sides to open it - that keeps them from accidentally slipping open. The pieces seem hand carved and are attractive. Everything is wood and feels much nicer than plastic. The magnets aren't very strong but will hold the pieces in place if bumped or on a car ride. I feel like this chess board is solid and will last a while. I'm happy.
