Customer Reviews

The weighted pieces are very nice for tournament and blitz chess.
The Alaskan
If you're looking for a classic set that you don't have to spend a fortune or worry an expensive piece will break, then this is a good set to buy.
Thomas M. Humphryes
I picked the pieces because they were weighted, and the roll up board and carry bag is a plus.

Overall, my son and I like this set and we are glad we purchased it. These are some of our personal observations about the set:

The chess pieces:
1. Heavy pieces feel good in hand. Nice touch on the weighting.
2. Colors are deep black and a pleasant white/cream.
3. The fabrication process is not “top notch” as you can see/feel the vertical separation lines. A better process would have buffed these out. If shopping in a store where I could see it before the purchase, the price point and the vertical line would be enough of a turn off for me to look for something else. Not enough of an issue for me to send back, though.
4. The pieces are a little bigger than I expected (not a bad thing.)
5. The queen has a sharp/prickly crown that is off putting. This is my single biggest complaint about the set.
6. The set is not made to impress. This is your utility set that you knock around, but I cannot testify to durability because we take care with our stuff.
7. My 10 year old son said “I have played on nicer tournament sets before.” Not sure what you can do with that unspecific comment .

The chess board:
1. Colors are solid, easy to see.
2. Rows and columns are nicely labeled.
3. The rubber mat is rolled onto the tube the wrong way, so it takes a while for it to “uncurl”, but not a real issue. A little sun did the trick.
4. Another reviewer mentioned that the smell is off-putting. That is an understatement. When you get this thing out for the first time, allow time for it to air out. It will hit you in the face once you open the box.
5. Like the pieces, just a little bigger than I expected. This is a large set folks.

The case:
1. The extra strap is in the way. I removed.
2.

My kids have enjoyed this game a great deal over the past year and it gets very heavy use. The size of the pieces are great, and the weighting is very good. We were looking for a reasonably priced set and this one is perfect!

After about 9 months of significant usage, the weightings have fallen out of a couple pieces. They are pretty easy to put back in place with a little glue, so not much trouble in my opinion especially when I think about how much abuse our set gets. I would definitely recommend this chess set to anyone who is looking for a good price/benefit ratio.

This is a very good chess set. I have played many games with it and have drop a piece one or twice and they did not break or chip. I recommend this set you will not be disappointed.

I had previously purchased a cheaper $25 tournament style chess set, that even though wasn't bad, it didn't compare to the quality of this Deluxe Chess set. I noticed right away when I handled the pieces and how much heavier and better constructed they were. I like the fact that it helps flatten out the seemingly heavier canvass board unlike the less weightier chess pieces will do. The quality of the set is definitely obvious and would highly recommend spending the extra $20 for this set instead of a cheaper one.

Placed the order, timely UPS shipment with tracking option to see its journey from AZ to Arkansas.

Just the right weight to give a sense of purpose when you move the pieces across the board for the duel with your opponent.

Clear Design of pieces with extra Queen for the successful who get their lowly Pawn across the fight area.

My friends love to play with these pieces for our games.

Pleased with my purchase.

This set is exactly what a tournament player needs. Good feel and nicely sized pieces. The bag is fine for its purpose and I've had no problems with the zipper. Triple-weighted is definitely the way to go. Complete with a pair of extra queens.

Had a slight problem with a piece damaged in shipping. The seller replaced the piece promptly and without hassle. Having said this, I feel the pieces are sturdy and not prone to breaking -I was just unlucky. Service was great, though.

This chess set is built well and looks and feels great.

The pieces:
The quality is good, with solid triple-weighted pieces. This is a large regulation set suitable for both tournament and casual play. It is really satisfying to feel the solid weight of these pieces as you move them around the board. Their weight also makes them steady so your pieces won't tip in the heat of blitz play. There are mould lines as you would expect on any cast plastic pieces, but they are overall pretty clean. I scraped some extra plastic off the queen's crowns to clean them up a bit.

The bag:
The bag is nice and has handles and a shoulder strap for carrying. It comfortably fits the included roll-up board, all the pieces for the set, and a chess clock with some room to spare if you want to add some notebooks or other odds and ends. There are also two pen/pencil loops to keep your writing materials in place. Everything seems protected inside and I would not worry about damage from reasonable use.

The board:
This is a basic vinyl roll-up board used by clubs and tournaments all over. At first it had a little bit of curl from storage, but I was able to play on it right away without any problems. After letting is sit out for a while it now lies flat with no problems. It rolls of quickly and neatly for storage and transportation and fits nicely into the bag.

Packaging:
The set is packaged thoughtfully with all items protected from damage in transit. The queens even had thin cardboard/paper wrapped around their crowns to prevent damage during transit. Everything is packaged in a manufacturer box and again an overbox from Amazon. The mail carrier would have to seriously abuse this thing to damage it.
