Customer Reviews

Received the product today as ordered; nothing was missing.

Save yourself the money and get a digital clock "or a different brand" since this one is horrible.
Panadero
Nice, weighty but, the paper on the bottom of the pieces wears off, and needs to be replaced.

Received the product today as ordered; nothing was missing. The chess pieces are substantially weighted and the board stays nice and flat even from the first roll out.

The carrying bag seems sturdy enough. A caveat I do have is the quality of the internal pouch that holds the chess pieces (not the plastic bags they come in). It holds everything quite nicely but it feels weak, like thin paper. I'm afraid that after continual use it will eventually rip and tear against the edges of the chess pieces. I'll report back on the bag and the pouch after I get to put them to use for a time.

The clock is another matter altogether. As soon as I removed the case from the box I could already hear something rattling around. After I determined the noise was from the clock (I was glad it wasn't coming from the bags that held the chess pieces) I popped it open and found that of the two clock bodies that move the clock hands, the one on the right was loose and that one of the tabs that secured it to the white clock face was broken off. Upon turning the clock over to examine the dials, I also discovered that the hour hand on that same right clock, was loose and flapping around--no doubt due to the movement of the loose clock body.

It's a simple fix to reapply the hour hand--tension keeps both the hour and minute hands secured--by just pressing it back into place at the 12 o'clock position. The clock body itself is another problem. Without the tabs to secure it in place it's free to slap around in the case. I'm now in the process of super gluing the tabs in place and gluing the clock body to the clock face. After it's all put together it should be in better shape than when I received it.

Well packaged and a decent time piece. The carrying tote makes this a prefect gift for soldiers like myself as well as the roll up mat to play on. Really a well priced and convenient set.

This set is great for the money you pay. The pieces feel very solid due to the substantial weight added. Every piece looks great.

The clock is also quite good. It feels solid, has all the features you need, works well, and only runs on one AA battery (which is included.) I don't know why the reviewer complaining about the clock didn't just send the set back for a replacement. He's complaining that the clock came to him broken. He then complains that he had to superglue it back together. That's not really the fault of the clock when he could have sent it back for a clock in perfect condition. The fact that he chose to fix it himself rather than get a replacement is on him. I am very pleased with mine.

The board is the only sticking point. It was folded in the box and has three permanent creases along three files on the board. Otherwise it's a fine board with which to play.

If the board was packaged rolled instead of folded I would have given this product five stars instead of four. I am still quite pleased with the purchase, however.

like everything but the zipper broke on the game bag after a couple of days use; but everything ties down in the bag so it can still be used as a carrier for the game and clock.
