My adult Grandson (22 yo) and his Mom think this is awesome---cool to look at, fun to use. It's great to have a non-plastic, very cool thing, to give to a guy.
This is a beautiful chess set with a raised board/case that houses the pieces when not in use. The leather insets are magnificent and the woodwork ornate. The pieces are a little top heavy so I drilled deep holes in the bases and melted hot lead into them for more stability and a better solid feeling. Still, really value this set.
