The case comes with a timer holder partition that is the perfect size for a chess timer, like the Saitek digital. I love that. I wish that the pocket which holds the pieces was split into two for white/black pieces. At first glance, it doesn't seem to be all that sturdy, but upon further review, everything contained will probably last forever except for the zippers on the case. I've got one that is broken now, and one was broken on arrival. I just use a paper clip to get by. Oh, and the mousepad sucked bigtime, it was in the garbage within a day.

If you plan on using this as a traveling chess set, think again. The teeth seperate and the zipper was broken from the 2nd time being used. The vinyl roll up board was stained by the ink transfer process used. The pieces are big with an ok weight. Finding a case is going to be tough because of it's size. It is not a compact case but portable if it were properly made.

I bought this set as a gift for my husband who is trying to brush up his chess game. The board and pieces are pretty big. I find them comfortable to play with, but he thinks it's a little too big. I paid a little bit extra for the set with the carry bag, but we soon realized, it isn't really practical. Rolling the mat up as tight as it needs to be to fit in the bag makes it a bit too curly and the pieces on their own could fit pretty well in a much smaller bag. We will use this at home, but stick with our small magnetic set when out and about.

The thing you need to know about this set is that it's impossible to outgrow it. It's cheap enough for a first set, just to test the waters, and it's meets tournament standards precisely. The pieces are regulation standard, so they are easy to replace, as is the board, so if one or the other gets lost or destroyed, you don't have to replace the whole thing. If you have the playing room, this is the only set you'll ever need.

The board is lovely, thick, easy to clean, easy to store. I don't see it decaying or tearing any time soon. It has the ranks and files labeled, which is always nice, but is especially useful for beginners.

The bag is well stitched, with enough room for a sizeable clock. Lucky for me, since I bought Royal Crest Analog Chess Clock/Timer by Wood Expressions -- a big one. It lacks a shoulder strap, which is its only weakness.

The pieces are good lucking and have a nice weight to them. There is an extra queen for if you promote a pawn.

The instructions are okay, but chess is complex enough, you need a book or 50 on the topic. I suggest Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Chess Openings (forgive the title) to start.

I wanted a good quality chess set to teach my kids, so I wanted it to have full size pieces, a numbered/lettered board, and be durable enough to handle the stress put on it by little kids. The carrying case is straightforward--the zipper seems strong enough, and it can hold all of the pieces, the board, and it appears there is space for a clock (although the clock is not included). The pieces are full-size durable Staunton style pieces. They are not heavy, but they are durable enough for my purposes. The one thing that was a real disappointment was the vinyl board. When it arrived, the board had gotten creased while rolled, so it just would not lie flat. I tried everything--rolling it backwards, ironing it, weighting it... nothing got it entirely flat. Little ripples in the vinyl made it impossible for pieces to stand up straight without toppling. I wrote to ChessCentral and they were kind enough to send me a new board immediately (so A+ for customer service). As a result, I find that I can recommend doing business with ChessCentral, but not recommend buying this set. You should get what they call "the mousepad board" which is very durable, rolls easily, and lies flat.

the well known rule applies: you get what you pay: board does not lay flat on the table, chess set is very light, the bag does not fit anything else like a clock or a chess block, yes it fits a pen. Next time I will spend more for a higher quality

No issues, good transaction. Great customer service!
Playing mat is a regulation size, pieces are a nice size too. There's a Velcro strap to hold a clock, zipper to hold chess pieces, nice and compact.
