However, the dice disappointed me - I purchased this board in part because of the standard size dice with the rounded edges as shown, since the cups don't have the band inside.
What I received was 4 tiny square dice, two of which appeared melted or someone took a bite out of them. I can't be bothered returning the whole board, so I ordered a black and a white set right here on Amazon.
The photos on any product should be what you get, not some cheaper substitute. This was very disappointing, and annoying. I will be reluctant to order anything like this from Amazon again.
Pieces: These are great. Simple, smooth finish, good size, with the perfect heft with a nice 'clink' to them. Dice are paired for each player - a black set for black, a white set for white (more of an off-white) - and are of a slightly smaller size than your 'average' die. (large 'doubling' die also included) They're not too small and fit nicely in the shaker cups, which are felt-lined for quieter play.
Exterior: Case faux leather wrap is good quality with white stitch (same materials are used on cups and for sewn-down board points/marks) for a handsome exterior set off with a single polished chrome latch. One small quibble is the latch which works great, but has a rather light latching tension. It swings and 'snaps' shut on a little spring-loaded ball catch, so the board is secured shut and will not open easily even if you try to pry the board halves open. But the latch itself swings open with less force than I expected. I suppose the latch itself may 'pop' open inadvertently if caught on something, but this hasn't posed a problem for me at all and is just a caution if you might bang and bump this set around a lot. Also lacking is any kind of carry handle or bag. I may make a carry bag or fasten a handle on the latch end.
Interior: The felt on the play surface and all other interior is general quality and could be much nicer. The felt-covered partitions inside are general-to-low quality, which is also no big deal except that they are cheaply assembled. A few staples/brads are used to affix each, but these dividers are the crummiest part for me. You can see where they separate from the board a small amount and they are somewhat flimsy, detracting from the otherwise good quality of the set.
My set arrived damaged during shipping. The pieces were packaged and stored in their regular storage trays in the set, and their mass was enough to bust one divider completely out of place during shipping, exposing sharp tacks. Another was nearly fully busted out of place. I managed to force them back into place, but they do not sit flush anymore and are the only remaining thing that looks sub-standard about this otherwise good set for the price. I should have returned for a replacement, but fixed it myself and it is generally fine for me except that it the dividers will probably never sit fully flush down again.
Final verdict: if the set is primarily going to stay at home, it's a great value - really. But if you intend to take it all over the place and expect to bump it around a lot, consider spending more for higher quality or go with a wooden set.
All items were included and nothing was missing/deformed or broken.
Haven't played it yet but everything looks good.
My only concern is the lack of center hinges. This board uses a piece of leather/pleather as the hinge. These has a tendency to rip over time.
