The Chess Pieces:
1. Size is perfect
2. Design & looks are interesting & yet recognizable.
3. Color is good
4. Although it's plastic, the weight is still ok, it can sit still on the board.
1. Nice durable & sturdy carton.
2. Can be folded into quarter of its size.
3. The seams are not noticeable when you unfold it.
4. The design looks good except the artwork on each square that's sometimes giving me the dizzy feeling when i look at it for too long.
This is the best feature of this product - i've been playing Chess for over 30 years & the concept of this game is G-R-E-A-T...just like the description on the box- it's not just a game, it's a WAR! I suggest that you may want to revised the rule just like what other reviewers had mentioned esp when a player conquered a "kingdom". And since this could be a great game for a party, I'm planning to create my own version of this game with larger pieces & not so dizzy game board. I already ordered a Staunton Chess pieces which of course will come in Black & white; then I will order another similar set & will dye it with a different color like Gold & Silver. I recommend this to anyone who is a Chess afficionado, not for novice peeps. Hope this helps...I'm getting one for my Chess Buddy who lives in Australia!
In our first game we had a huge debate on directional changes for the pawn depending on the army said pawn is placed in front of.
My father (to my left) had moved a pawn forward into my mothers (directly across from me) territory and then on his next turn moved that same pawn toward the rooks starting tile. This sparked the debate.
My brother (to my right) insisted that he couldn't move that way because from his position (directly across from my dad) it looked like he moved the pawn backwards which everyone knows you can't do. My dad argued that because his pawn was in front of my mothers army that it essentially could allow the pawns "backwards" to be in either his direction or mine. My brain exploded, how 'bout yours?
Anyway, shipping was fast and the price is good for what you're getting :)

Chess.... and more chess..... HOLY COW they weren't kidding when they said this game is straight up WAR.
I love the new style of play you need to come out on top. Read more
Frankly I want to give this six stars. I really enjoy playing it ..... BUT there need to be better directions. Do teams sit next to each other or across? Read morePublished 15 days ago by J. Chapman
Such a new way of playing Chess; drives my Chess-nut friend crazy though, as his long-studied strategies do not work.Published 16 days ago by Aaron Houck
Great idea, however the pieces could definitely be better quality, and larger, plus I was missing a piece. Sent back.Published 2 months ago by Michael H.
