A second generation redesign could make this one of the best sets for the money and I hope this feedback gives some ideas to the makers.

I wouldn't buy this set again but I'm not sending it back either. The value is adequate for the price but I think there are other sets of equal price or maybe a little more that are better.

The set looks good and feels good in the hands. The bishops are beautiful and tough! The barrels on the king, queen and rooks are very smooth and that feels great. They are pleasant to hold and touch. The knights look good but the bright shiny materials lack contrast and make it hard to discern any detail. The felt on the bottom is an acceptable weight.

The pieces have odd proportions though. The rooks and pawns are too big. If those were made smaller this would be a 5 star product. I say that even though I don't like black/ivory sets and prefer black/natural(camel).

The set I received had cardboard wrapped around the crowns of two of the queens but not the other two. The reason for that was that the crowns have very fragile spikes that break off easily. The ones that were protected were fine but one of the others had two spikes broken off.

If the proportions of the rook and pawns were changed and the queen's crown were redesigned I would probably buy a second generation version of this set as it is otherwise quite good.

The set was what I expected. The piece designs are good. Solid pieces. My only negative is the "crown" of the queen is slightly sharp. If you want bigger pieces this is a solid choice.

If you do get this you will need a board with 2 1/4 sqares.

I love these. They feel great when you move the pieces. They are large and looks really good on my foldable tournement board.

Excellent service. The chess pieces were as good as I expected (and that's very good). Furthermore, I won all games that I played using them (against my 11 year old grandson :-).

These were a perfect match for a set of pieces I had about 5 years ago, that got lost during a move. They are my absolute favorite pieces! I love the size and style of the bishops, knights, and rooks especially. The rooks are big, and look menacing, as do the knights. Be careful of the tops of the queens, as they are a little sharp and pointy. They are nicely weighted, and give a good feel during play. I use this in a set with a genuine leather roll-up board, Diamond analog clock, and deluxe large zippered bag, and the whole set works nicely, keeping me very happy with the items I use in play. I have the same style of these, but with a 3.75" king that I purchased from chesshouse.com, which are also good pieces, but were not weighted, and are considerably smaller to the eye. These are definitely the only style of chess pieces that I want to own.

Exactly what I wished for. You buy a large toy checker set and you eventually get tired of checkers. These pieces glammed up our big checker board. So much more fun for kids to learn with these lovely heavy large pieces . . .

The chess pieces were good but not great. Some finishing details not done very well, such as the casting joint edges were showing as small rough ridges that really should have been sanded or filed off. Also, one of the pieces felt base was crumpled and I had to straighten it out and reglue it. Otherwise, pieces have a good feel and look nice.

I like the classic pieces. These large pieces are fun to play with. They don't get accidentally knocked over or bumped around during play. I also find playing with a big classic set helps my mind to spend less time on piece recognition and more on strategy. Love the feel and the weight of each piece.
