"Beautiful Piece,"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautiful piece of art (more than a Chinese Checkers game). It is very heavy which is probably one detractor for it and the marbles could use a pouch to go with it (we found a container). The workmanship is quite good and I feel like it was the right choice for my gift (rather than a cheaply made board from another vendor).
