Just one peeve, a tiny leg on the inside (one of the four for closing the case) was broken, but hey considering the price the entire product is outstanding.
I did improve a few things. The first thing I did was test the magnets. They were all in at first, then I noticed a magnetless piece when I say up the board.
Luckily it was stuck to the board. Its not like you can easily replace one if you lose it, and there really is no way to predict which ones will fall out. There is an easy fix though, simply put fingernail polish on the bottom, or evenly spread a thin layer of elmers glue on the bottom.
I actually did one color one way and the other color the other way, it seems to work equally well each way and it doesn't affect the magnet strength, which leaves something to be desired. In fact, the reason I knocked off a star, was because the magnets are weak. Some of them anyway, it's weird because some are stronger than others and the seem to be larger enough magnet pellets, they all should be stronger.
It probably doesn't need to be said but the pieces need to be upside down while the glue or polish dries. I used a nail strengthing basecoat for mine which was rather thin, it works great and is easy. I think I got it for chigger bites.
I'm not crazy about the color and was actually going to spray paint them black and white but was afraid even a thin coat of overstay would full what little detail there is.
I did scribble on the bishops and rooks with black sharpie on the top to help them stand out. I actually got used to the pieces now and have them near me when I read, this set is a great size for that.
Since I don't use it for traveling I went a step further and glued the table open. That way I can more easily hold it with one hand. I store the pieces in a small snap- it container when not in use.
I started to glue a bead finale on top of the bishops to decorate them even more but realized I was getting carried away. Plus the beads I had didn't fit right.
I've gone ahead and ordered the slightly larger version of this set and plan on making the same modifications. I might even paint them the proper colors. We will see.
In summery, this is a nice small set for when you are reading or playing on line. I could see myself lining up four or so to represent the games I have in progress. I have lost games i was only a couple moves from winning because the black and white queens look too similar on my tablet!!!
We've played it on a shuttle bus trip and in the hotel room and haven't lost pieces yet! It's great!! And it's been about a month since we bought it and play it from time to time. Probably about 15 games so far... the magnets are still in tact, but that's not to say they won't fall of eventually... that's expected.
