Product Description

Checkmate! These chessmen combine the traditional Staunton style with the durability of plastic. They are 90% plastic filled which makes them heavier than plastic pieces that are hollow, and they feature felt bottoms. Pieces are black and ivory. The Staunton design has become the standard for tournament play. The pieces are easily distinguishable making for easier game play. Knights are made to resemble the head and neck of a horse. Kings are the tallest pieces featuring a cross atop a closed crown. Queens are slightly smaller than the kings, and feature a coronet topped with a small ball. Rooks feature castle battlements, and bishops resemble a liturgical headdress of a western church. Pawns are the smallest and are topped by a plain ball. The pieces which represent humans (the king, queen, bishop, and pawn) feature a collar which separates the body from the head design. These will be enjoyed for years to come.

Set is very durable. I can't say if it's indistructable but the pieces are very strong. They are solid plastic except for the core of it through the center of the plastic. They are supposed to be this way, if you want to add a wieght inside which is optional but a good thing. These pieces are not with the added weights in them. It says in the description. The exact same pieces with the weights cost more. This set is sold for much less. The pieces are lighter. However, this is not a problem for me. They still are a great buy for the cheap price. I love how they feel in your hand, and the size is fantastic! They are huge and good size. The kind that professionals use in tournaments and the kind you see people playing in parks. If you drop them, they don't break. I only wish this set came with the board. At least it comes with a small bag you can store them all in and travel with them. Due to the cheap price, I did order another set of the same pieces which do come with a board, but no bag. That way I can have more pieces in case I lose any, and more queens which are I think, necessary in chess. You need at least 2 or 3 extra queens with each color when your pawn reaches the opposite end of the board. Then your pawn gets what I call, "reincarnated" or metamorphosized into a queen. This is how you play chess. That's why the sets all comes with at least 1 extra queen which is wonderful!

Overall, I love this set and was just what I was looking for. I am currently learning how to play chess and I love it! Even if I'm not a very good player right now but I still love to play and learn. I had bought and returned 3 chess sets already, because I was not completely satisfied with any of them because of quality and the fact that they were not easy to travel with. This one is the best above any I've seen. They are a great big size, durable, and very easy to take anywhere. I recommend any of the Strauton pieces for beginners, amatures, or professionals!

It is a standard chess set, but I want to give the company a great review because they took care of me very well. The set comes with an extra black and white queen for pawn promotions and its own carrying bag. However, my set was short a black rook and they gave me an extra white bishop. I contacted the company the very day I received an immediate response and they sent out the black rook. I was surprised and happy at the speed at which they responded and took care of the problem.

"I have a rug chess board that fits perfect on my table in our study room here at home. I purchased these pieces to use when one of my sons and I play. It works great and I can put everything away neatly when finished. The product arrived on time and they are perfect for what I wanted them for as well. Not too big, not to small and not to light weighted. Thank you."

Decent chess set. Some of the pieces had air bubbles from the mold casting. One of the felt bottoms was un-even and the rook wobbled because of it. Over all, for the price, I think it was fine. I wouldn't want this to be displayed all the time in my home though. Take it out, play a game with it, and put it back in the bag.
