"bad hardware"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The locking hardware feel off on one side and is loose on the other. One piece had to be glued together . the top board is not really flat and not really straight.

"Beautiful and practical chess set!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Well made and aesthetically pleasing travel chess set. The pieces are magnetic and stick to the board, which is convenient for travel and playing with younger children (teaching them chess). A smaller size board and pieces, but I prefer that. Thank you.

"A delightful compact chess set!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this little chess set. Doesnt take up much room, is a beautiful conversation piece wherever you keep it, and I love that it is its own storage container for all the chess pieces. I also love that the board and pieces have magnets, so the pieces stay where you put them on the board. The size is perfect for travel or home, it is a beautiful example of fine craftsmanship, and I just love it!
