I was looking for a decent checkers set, and this is the one I picked. For the price it's a nice set. The top is painted, and the paint job is a little smeary in places, but it's otherwise well made. The top slides open easily, and you can store the checkers inside. The checkers don't fit together when you stack them, so moving your king around can be a bit tricky, but it's not a deal killer. All in all, I'm glad I picked this set rather than the standard cardboard and plastic one.

What looked like a nice checker set online, is an extremely cheaply-made item. The checkers are nothing more than small, wooden disks. When making an opponents checker a king, there is nothing to keep the top checker from sliding off. The only redeeming characteristic is the fact that the top slides and you can store the checkers in the box. Save yourself $16 and go buy the classic cardboard checker set from walmart or kmart with the black and red plastic checkers.

This was a well constructed product, and inexpensive for what you are getting. If you are looking for a checkers board that is nice looking and self contained to play at home or on trips, this is a good one.

It is a bit smaller than I expected, both the board and the pieces. While this doesn't affect the playing much, it probably wouldn't be best used as a "display" board to be kept out and set up at all times (like many people do with their chess sets).

If you are looking for something a little nicer than the basic cardboard and plastic checkers set, this is definitely a good value.

This is so great! We love Checkers and my son is really into it. This game is great. I had searched and searched for something durable and compact and this is it. I'd highly recommend it. This game is extremely durable and I can see us getting many, many years of use out of it. Yes, I'll admit that the checkers don't stack quite as neatly as an original pair of checkers would when you are "kinging" someone but it's not that bad and they will stay on top of each other. I'd still rate this very high! For the money it's a great deal.

A lot smaller and lower quality than described/pictured on website than expected. Product name and description indicated as a "premium" quality product. Wood color of actual product was way off from picture (presented/pictured as wood stained cherry & black) on both website and box but after removing from box product was cherry stained with hand painted matte bluish-grey colored squares which badly cheapened the product. Wood quality used, very flimsy, paint slightly chipped in areas with some jagged corner on the box edges and board pieces were really small. Was a bit embarrassed to give as a gift for an adult and ended up giving to a child instead then had to run around at the last minute to locate a replacement gift for an adult. Very disappointed.
