Getting them in and out will wear it down over time and crack and maybe cut your finger. I recommend throwing them both away and having the pieces loose in the tin case it comes in with the board.
The board (quartered) and all pieces come in a metal box (pictured). My only minor complaint is that the pieces are housed in cheap black plastic that feels a little flimsy (though that's hardly a huge deal if you're careful).
The pieces themselves are well painted, with obvious attention paid to the small details (i.e., Bowser's spikes). The colors are vibrant (as any Mario themed item should be!). The set could easily be a display piece (my husband collects Mario products so that's what we've done with it). Mario and Bowser are the king pieces on their respective teams, while Luigi and Bowser Jr. serve as the queens (no, I don't understand why either).
Overall I'd highly recommend this to any Mario fan who might want to learn how to play chess. Or perhaps someone extra competitive who wants to stab their opponent in the eye with their king piece (Bowser is certainly capable of this).

Actually, it's great! The pieces say on the back what they are (rook, pawn, king etc) and after 10 minutes you get to know them. Only once did I get a piece taken by a bishop that I thought was a knight!
It has got the kids excited by playing chess and the pieces are well made. The board is a fold up thing and is a bit cheap but its ok. Is it worth the money? Maybe not but compared to so much other plastic tat the kids have this has real longevity so I am happy I got it.
The tin box that holds the chess board and pieces is a real delight for collectors such as myself, and the inclusion of a "window" in which you can see the main characters is a nice touch. I do have one minor complaint though: The pieces themselves are packed in two flimsy, yet bizarrely stubborn plastic containers and both containers include hollows in which the pieces sit rather snugly--in fact, too snugly... Supposedly those hollows are designed to keep the pieces from coming loose while the chess set is displayed upright in the tin box; however, they fit so tightly that removing or replacing them feels like something of an endurance test. I mean, when it comes to unpacking a (seemingly) portable chess set, I don't expect to spend several minutes (yes, literally minutes) removing pieces from two finicky containers in order to set them up on a board. At least they are somewhat easier to replace, but not by much and overall I'm left with the feeling that this chess set is less travel-friendly than it looks. It's kind of annoying that just to transport the thing to some place or legitimately display it inside the tin box I have to initially get into a scrap with the packaging. To be honest, it's such a hassle that when it comes to short-distance travelling, I'd rather simply ditch those plastic containers, put the pieces directly in the tin box and hold it flat during the journey.
The pieces themselves though do feel very solid and are quite tough. Unlike the typical quality of wooden pieces from cheaper chess sets, these pieces have some weight and don't threaten to topple over if you so much as look at them thanks to their wide bases. On the collector enthusiast side of things, the pieces are pleasingly faithful to the characters they represent too. I critically examined each piece in detail and was pleased to see that even the most intricate of character details had been faithfully reproduced such as earrings, broaches, spikes, eyelashes and fingers.
The chess board is perhaps the only weak link in an otherwise well designed product. It is of a decent size and rigid enough; but being made of card rather than wood, I do worry that it might get micro-dented by heavily dragged pieces--not that it has yet. Still, as a precaution, I'd feel inclined to urge young kids to not drag pieces but rather, lift and drop them on the board (as one should anyway) since I want this chess set to look good for display too.
> Authentically accurate and durable pieces
> Box design and presentation
> Great for display out of the box
> Cardboard material for chess board raises minor concerns of long term durability
> Stubborn plastic packaging makes setup and repacking a hassle
An excellent product, great value for money and ideal for kids learning to play chess. For Mario fans, collectors and kids I cannot recommend this chess set highly enough.
So this was an attempt to get them back playing more traditionally without staring at screens all the time.
And it seems to have worked.
My kids and friends kids all love it. the characters are fun and it gets them thinking more strategically. =)
It is well made and the figures are very solid and durable. My only quibble and the reason why it didn't get the fifth star is that the pieces are a little too big for the board and can make the game play a bit awkward. However, that's just me; my grandson loves the set any way.
If you've a child who loves Mario, plays chess, purchase this to keep interest and esp if you have a more expensive wooden Chess board
Definitely recommend for getting young (and old) into enjoying chess. Very impressed and well presented in the box.
