There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The first was that is does not sit flat at all. The problem is that the hinge in the middle gets in the way so the ends of the board sort of sag and cause the pieces to want to move slightly.
Second, was the game play area, it's misaligned. For some folks that might not be a problem. For me however, it's quite annoying. In the middle where the two halves should meet up nice and square they are off by a good 1/8th inch if not a little more.
Finally, there is a large chunk of the edge of the top of game board missing, kind of like they dropped it during manufacture or splintered the wood but it's all filled in with stain and filler looks really crappy.
It's a chess board...so I kept it, but honestly I wish I would have spent my money on a nicer board. Just wanted to let anyone here know what they may receive when purchasing this.
For $30 - it's way over priced. Perhaps this should be priced at about $10~$12.
* Box of chess set looks really classy
* The chess board and chess pieces are really light but durable
* The wood feels and look great and polished
* The chess board was really small and compact
Now onto the cons.
* The chess set color looks a little lighter then the original picture.
(Might not be a problem for you - just make note and check out the picture below)
* Mine did come with a little chipped off piece on the chess board itself
* Also the chess board spaces were not quite aligned perfectly(pictures examples below)
Summary: You get what you paid for. For $26.99 you get a really nice, durable, light weight chess set. There some minor mistakes but in all, it is a really great product and a new chess set to add to my collection.
I am sending him the set since it is such a great beginner set and hopefully he will not only like having his own chess set, he will also fall in love with the game of chess!
Since my grandson is obviously just learning the game, I wanted a set that was easy to use, not plastic or cheap looking! I am not a fan of online shopping so I am ALWAYS a little apprehensive when ordering something from a picture but I was so pleased when I opened the box and it was exactly what I hoped it would be!
I even love the outside box it comes in--so classy!!
As a side note, I would also like to mention that the customer service is exceptional! I received an e-mail from an actual person--not a robot!--to make sure I was satisfied with their product and they even included a chess manual to download!
