4.0 out of 5 stars Great set, a small shame about the production 17 Feb 2011
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Its a chess set, not much more to say. The pieces feel substantial and the board and case are practical without being fiddly. I like it it is very good.
My one complaint would be on the standard of the quality control, one of the knight's manes was chipped and I had to tighten some of the screws in the board's folding mechanism to stop it wobbling about.
Still, all said I would probably buy this product again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Chess Board 22 July 2011
By Patrick
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Beautiful, quality chess board and nice, weighty pieces, too; all amounting to a real joy to play what is undoubtedly the greatest board-game - ever!

The black, leatherette type case is a nice touch; and has three compartments, one isn't really needed but may come in handy for something. The board itself fold up and fits snugly inside the case over the compartments. The chess pieces come in two black cloth bags.

Lovely product, and one I highly recommend.

Wooden Chess set with 3" KingSadly, as experienced by another buyer, an otherwise well manufactured 'toy' was spoiled by poor quality control. In my case the board was conspicuously damaged on the edge and top inlay border. This item was a lifetime gift to a grandchild to remember his grandparents and should have been perfect. The damage is immediately seen when then game is set up...very disappointing for the givers.

Our son and his family were delighted with this chess set at Christmas. Perfectly good quality and even a case to put it away in, so you don't lose the pieces.

2.0 out of 5 stars Its not like a real staughton chess set
If it had not been a present I would have returned it - I am comparing it with a set I bought 30 years ago for 40 set only - but I did expect more.
